We stayed 2 nights at the Ritz Carlton, Istanbul in July 2014 after getting off a 2 week cruise. We arrived at the hotel after being caught in a terrible rain storm. We arrived early around 11:00am even though check in wasn't until 3:00 pm. We were greeted by very friendly staff would could not seem to do enough for... More

My wife and I had just finished a wonderful cruise and had decided to complete our holiday with two days in Istanbul. While this would not be my favourite city we cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. We have stayed on club floors in most well known hotel chains from Australia, North America,Europe and Asia and this was in our... More

Very secure hotel sitting on a hill overlooking the Bosphorus Strait. We were immediately welcomed upon our arrival. The hotel has security at the entrance of the hotel, as well as at the front door into the hotel. Our check-in was quick, thankfully, as we had just had a long travel day. Our room had a great view of the... More

Our first trip to Istanbul, so we wanted a hotel brand we were familiar with and could trust. We could not have been more pleased. The hotel is safe and secure with guards out front checking cars, lobby security and detailed attentiveness by staff. The hotel staff were the most cheerful, kind, helpful and accommodating individuals I've ever experienced in... More

We started our trip with 3 days in Istanbul before heading out on the Wind Star for a 7-day sailing cruise through the Greek Islands. The hotel is in a central location, was within walking distance of the Dolmabahçe Palace and the restaurant Topaz (both highly recommended for history and food respectively). Taksim Square (shopping) is also within walking distance... More

They're level of service and quality of staff lived up to the Ritz standard. We stayed in a standard room, which was very average, and the view from our room was quite uninteresting. The bed was very comfortable though and the bathroom is very nice. Breakfast was a highlight, the view from the restaurant overlooks the Bosphurs and is a... More

Just like any Ritz Carlton, the Ritz Carlton Istanbul was the best hotel I have ever stayed at so far. Everything was just perfect. The staff was kind and warm and always catered to your needs. Our 2 rooms were overlooking the Bosphorus which was always great to wake up to. The room was nicely appointed with a big marble... More

One of the fine things in life, fine place to stay; clean, spacious, luxurious, elegant with unrivalled Customer Service to match. If you are looking for the best then you are in the right place and walking distance to Taksim Square.

Wanted to love this hotel with wonderful views of the Bosphorus but came away confused and frustrated. We had looked forward to staying here at the end of our trip in Turkey. On check in the prices were quoted in Euro's for club level. We later found that they where in fact in TL. Wonderful room with the best view... More
