This newly renovated Dedeman property is handy to Istanbul's commercial district and benefits from excellent conference facilities and highway access. Located in the business area of Gayrettep, the Dedeman Istanbul Hotel has a slick new boutique feel thanks to recent refurbishment. Rooms and common areas have a modern contemporary look with lots of clean lines and block colors creating a professional environment conducive to efficient business dealings. While its location is more suited to corporate needs, getting into the main shopping district of Taksim is easy via metro - there's a stop not far from the hotel and from there the funicular heads straight into Eminonu and Sultanahmed where the Old city's many historical sights await. Breakfast at the Dedeman is a generous buffet spread of Western and traditional Turkish foods.
