I am staying at Le Meridien İstanbul twice a month. The employees are very helpful and friendly. One of the best hotel gyms in the hotel though it is operated between 06:30-22:00. Breakfast is super. Highly recommended if you travel for business.

Staff were helpful, rooms and bathroom large and clean and a good view of the Bosphorous from the rooftop bar. Maybe the rooms can have other type of sockets rather than just one standard Turkish type, but that is a minor point. Room service food was average. Not a tourist hotel as it is far from the main tourist haunts... More

Uninformed reception desk, poor food, average service and location about 40min taxi drive from the centre. There's too many hotels in this town to waist your time and money here. Unlike other SPG hotels we stayed in. One upside - really helpful lady at the lounge (though cannot compensate all the negatives above)

We stayed at this hotel for three nights while visiting Istanbul. It's a bit out of the the way for tourists, but the overall comfort and restaurant are well worth it.

I spent 4 nights at Le Meridien while on a business trip and I have to say that this hotel is truly excellent, from the staff to the food to the rooms. I had a beautiful corner room on the 20th floor which is of the floors reserved to Starwood members. Three huge windows overlooking both sides really made a... More

As a frequent flyer I try to have a hotel in each city as my favorite, this is mine in Istambul (and I tried several before)... Great staff, fine food, a fantastic bar in top floor and most important a great room. SPG guests receiving the right treatment... In a nutshell see you soon there!

Great hotel with high end service, only pitty about the location if you expect to walk around in the area. For a business traveller it's convinient close to the airport, the old city center and one of the bridges to asia. Service is great with very friendly staff.
