Decor a bit too opulent for some tastes
CVK Hotels & Resorts Park Bosphorus is a huge five-pearl hotel in Istanbul's bustling Taksim neighborhood, steps away
from Taksim Square. Despite its classic, Ottoman-inspired style, the building was built in 2013 and the interiors
are glossy and chic, with all the requisite modern inclusions. The rooms
are spacious, with king-size beds and luxury amenities like mini hammams and soaking tubs in marble bathrooms, as well as private balconies. There's also an expansive indoor pool area, six high-end dining options, and a full spa.
The decadent hammam has gold mosaic tiles, and there's a sleek library complete with a fireplace
and cream-coored leather chairs. Although couples and business travelers
are the target market, it’s perfect for anyone looking for a relaxing and
refined environment in the heart of the city.
Glossy and opulent, with sweeping marble floors and a grand staircase
The decor at the CVK Hotels & Resorts Park Bosphorus - Istanbul is glossy and gilded, inspired by Ottoman-style luxury -- marble pillars, gold
accent mirrors, and mirrored ceilings -- and the atmosphere is simultaneously laid-back
and refined. The building curves around a central courtyard, which provides
guests with a relaxing, green public space. The lobby's recessed lighting creates a chic ambience for the grand space, filled with gold-engraved columns and intimate sitting areas of armchairs and coffee tables, popular for afternoon tea and meetings.
The fishscale-mirrored ceiling is a dramatic creative touch, although the seemingly endless polished marble
floors can seem a bit cold. The glass walls, shiny floors, and
abundance of marble can feel like a high-end shopping mall to some, but it's a matter of taste.
In the Taksim district, close to Istiklal Street and Taksim Square, and a mile and a half to Galata Tower
The CVK hotel is on a quiet street just off a major tourist center, making a dramatic impression with its grand pillars and leafy rooftop. It’s near
the hip neighborhood of Beyoglu, filled with designer shops and trendy restaurants. The wide pedestrian street Istiklal Caddesi is a 10-minute walk from the
lobby door and the neighborhood is best explored on foot, so you can wander through churchyards and admire the
consulates with their spacious, fenced-in grounds; there's also an historic tram that runs up and down the street’s center. Chain stores are
gradually taking over the street, so many of the independent artisans,
cutting-edge design shops, restaurants, and cafes are moving south. Some of the
best fish restaurants are just north in a maze of alleys branching off to the
northwest across from the Swedish Consulate. Taksim Square -- an open area dominated by the Monument of the Republic -- is practically outside the hotel's door. Also facing the square is Atatürk
Cultural Center, the city's main concert hall. Dolmabahce Palace is a five-minute
walk from the hotel. The Taksim metro station is on the doorstep, a
five-minute walk away.
Luxurious and opulent, with soaking tubs and private balconies -- and peekaboo bathrooms in the Terrace Suite
Rooms are gilded and elegant, with wooden floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, and gray and taupe accents. Light-wood furniture makes the room look airy
and spacious. Bathrooms are regal, with gold-fixtured sinks and gilded accent mirrors; plush robes add to the opulence.
Some rooms come with a mini-hammam and all showers have hydromassaging
showerheads. The Park Prestige Suites are much larger than the standard rooms
and cater to longer-stay guests. These suites have living rooms with a dining table and chairs, and their own washing and tumble drying machines in the kitchens, plus private terraces. Even the lower-tier rooms are still opulently decorated, with silky bedspreads and private balconies, many with views of the Bosphorus; many also have freestanding soaking tubs and circular beds. All rooms are
air-conditioned, have flat-screen TVs, a mini-bar, and comfortable beds
with pillow menus.
Six restaurants, a spa with hammam, 16 meeting rooms, a beautiful library, and large pool under a glass atrium
The hotel has six eateries, including a roof terrace bar and executive lounge. The main restaurant, Gümüşsuyu, serves a buffet breakfast daily (for a fee) and has an a-la-carte menu for other
meals. The Park Patisserie and Lounge, located in the lobby, serves fresh pastries and ice cream. There's also a massive spa that includes a Turkish bath, steam room, whirlpool tub, facial treatments, and head-to-toe
massages and scrubs. The cozy library has a range of coffee-table books and cream-colored leather chairs that are easy to settle into for a few hours. The gym is larger than typical
hotel gyms and offers a full range of cardio and weight machines. Many businesses hold
conferences at the hotel, not only because of its proximity to the business
district but also because of its multiple event spaces, including 16 meeting rooms. There's also a large, lounger-lined pool under a glass atrium. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout, babysitting services can be arranged, and airport transfers can be organized.
