                        Very good location if you have to stay in the expensive Taksim area. My room was reasonably sized and comfortable.

                        The hotel might be overrated. The service is less than three stars. The night receptionist was quite rude. When somebody asked him a question he just said "I don't know" without even looking at the asker. In about one hour that I was sitting in the lobby he argued loudly or yelled at three or more customers. One actually called the police, who came and left. In the US a receptionist like that would have been fired a long time ago.

                        It's actually my 2nd stay at their hotel this year, I was there before in January 2011, with my daughter, and this time I came back with my wife, daughter, and 6 month old baby boy, the Team of Crystal all remembered me from my last visit and all were so helpful and caring had the baby-bed ready in the room, and hot-water for baby food ready 24/7, they even cooked daily a special fresh baby soup everyday for my 6 month old son. The location is one of the best in Istanbul city, Havas bus from airport is there, Metro, Taxim Square, and all the other things around.

                        I can not write anything bad, because the place, location and staff are the best...

                        Honestly only the location

                        They didnt repair the A.c for 2 days( all our stay) and the photos on the website are too much different from the reality and in all over the world the two bottles of water are for free we payed them in the hotel...

                        Fairly good breakfast

                        Insufficient cleanness standard, the room although supposed to be a family room, was small with absolutely different specifications from these mentioned in their promotion pictures, the A.c is not good.

                        Only the location.

                        The breakfast was really bad. The people in the reception weren't helpfull at all and their english were very poor. You had to pay (a lot) for the sauna and other facilities and the water in the swimming pool was cold.

                        It is across the street from Havas (bus from & to airport), perfect location in Taksim square so it is close to all public transportation in Istanbul.

                        Apart from bakery items, breakfast was very poor and far less than what should be expected from a-four star hotel.

                        Location of Cristal hotel is located right on Taxim Squar & near to Merto & taxi net work .

                        Rooms are small with no facility out side room !!

                        The only good thing is the location.

                        The hotel rooms are very small for a family with 2 young kids. The buffet breakfast is very poor for a 4 star hotel; the staff is not friendly and not supportive when you request something. I asked for a kettle to make hot water and they said they did not have although my friend who was in the same hotel with us was given one. I do not recommend this hotel for anyone.

                        Nothing

                        -staff were very rude -they turn the air conditions off for almost 18-20 hours a day (temperature was over 85), when anyone asked or objected they would lie by saying "they are broken", or "this is our system!!) -carpets in the hallways/rooms were so dirty and filthy. -Toilets were leaking all the time. -bread and pastry in the breakfast were old as if from baker's yesterday"s unsold. - this hotel does not worth even 2 stars, let alone 4 stars!! Such a waste of money , I did not enjoy my vacation because of very poor quality of the hotel. -from now on I won't trust your hotel ratings; at least not overseas.

                        Location, breakfast, duty manager

                        I called receiption at 22:00 but the person who answered informed that the receiption staff is not available yet !!! I called house keeping asking for Iron and Iron board, they shout on me and informed that it is too dangerouse to have Iron in the room. I think they should pass this latest information to all branded hotels, because they are not following their advise !!! Rooms are small.
