The Park Hyatt Istanbul is located in Macka Palas. We used Uber from the airport, which took nearly an hour at a cost of 100 TRY (~$35 USD).

The lobby is beautifully decorated and gorgeous. The space is very inviting even though it is carries the minimalist Park Hyatt design.

Candle

Check-in was very smooth and we were checked in by one of the managers. Somewhere in my profile it was noted that my wife likes candles, and she presented my wife a candle that was specifically made for the Park Hyatt Istanbul by Blaise Maitin. This was way above and beyond expectation, especially since we had never stayed at the Park Hyatt Istanbul before.

Breakfast was served in the lobby restaurant, which is on the cozy side as there are only about 10 tables. In the two days of our stay, we only saw one other table occupied.

In addition, you can order an entrée from the menu.

Service throughout our stay was exceptional. The staff was extremely friendly and greeted us whenever we entered or exited the property. I would definitely stay here again the next time I find myself in Istanbul.
