Park Hyatt Istanbul – Macka Palas
The Park Hyatt Istanbul-Macka Palas is Istanbuls’s answer to a stylish retreat. The ninety-room property is perfectly situated in the posh shopping district of Nisantasi (Emporio Armani and Gucci boutiques have already staked out the bottom floor), and just a short stroll to the areas most fashionable boutiques and trendy restaurants. Luxury and sophistication exude from every angle, typified by the bathrooms which come equipped with a steam shower, heated floors, and five fancy faucet fixtures to wash away any stresses you could have picked up on your travels. Our favorite part? The private French balconies off our room – the perfect place to watch the city unfold.
