Akmerkez, Istanbul Reviews - Write a Review

  • Too old to rack and roll but too young to die. Akmerkez shopping mall is still one of the best shopping destinations to shop in a compact environment. Best for a pragmatic shopping act. Has a few chic (I doubt) cafés at the ground floor, a fine food court on 3rd and a terrace on top.

  • It was very comfortable going down to the mall when we lived at Akmerkez building of apartments right above. Yet it is a small one compared e.g. with Özdilek, there are popular Turkish brand shops missing, the food court not very attractive, and the prices at the fancy supermarket were ridiculously expensive.

  • If you are looking for a nice small quite shopping mall then you should go there, they don't have a lot of stores but great collection. Food court is really nice and clean too with a variety of cuisines, fine dinning and fast food.

  • All the big brands under one roof but I like the terrace it's from the food court area nice sitting place if it's a nice weather

  • High quality mall in ulus/etiler region, reborn recently...
