This hotel was downright amazing. The staff cater to your every need. The food was amazing. The drink was a little expensive but the atmosphere made up for it. I would love to come here again. There are amazing little shops in the hotel that have prices thatmirror close to the grand bazaar.

Came here for two nights in a business trip. Great hotel, rooms nice and big with great amenities. Service is great especially in the restaurants and bar area once you get past security to get into the hotel. Good views from the rooms and restaurant over the next door football stadium

Towering about the skyline on the banks of the Bosphorous commanding a spectacular view of the whole of Istanbul. We were fortunate in that we were given a suite up in the heavens which allowed us to view the city prior to discovering it. Arrival was what you would expect of a hotel of this grandeur and the food in... More

Four of our family just spent 4 nights at RC-Istanbul. The entire trip was wonderful. The airport pickup service (expensive) was efficient, and got us through the airport in 15 minutes (we carried all luggage with us)! The reception at the hotel was warm, and we enjoyed a glass of wine in the Concierge Club before going to the room... More

Visiting Ritz Carltons around the world for close to 15 years is both a blessing and a curse. How so? Some branches spoil you so much it makes others pale in comparison. The Ritz Carlton Istanbul is a classic example of once you've sampled a luxury, it becomes an expected necessity. Coming from the Ritz Carlton Abu Dhabi, the Istanbul... More

We had a short stay prior to a cruise. Can't say enough about the staff, property and service. We consider ourselves pretty high maintenance and this property delivered it all! Greeted promptly upon arrival, friendly helpful front desk staff, club level staff went above and beyond, incredible views, great restaurant recommendations (to include their own.) The room was spectacular and... More

Its a ritz. So it should be one of the best hotels in the world. But the Istambul ritz is a special ritz and much more than the amazing view and the dedicated service. The service is full of great details and the room was incridible. Not too much expensive for a european hotel there.

Early this summer, I stayed at the Ritz Carlton Berlin and had a great experience, so I thought I'd give the Ritz Carlton Istanbul a try. I'm so glad I did! As a single female traveler, I was trepidatious about coming to Turkey alone. The Ritz put me entirely at ease. Security at the hotel is great. I'd had a... More

We stayed here for 2 nights before the start of a cruise. On the outside the hotel looks very modern and, in our opinion, a bit of an eyesore against all the older buildings in Istanbul. However, step inside, and the decor is modern but quite traditional. Our room was on the 7th floor and we had a side view... More

From check in to check out the service at this hotel was impeccable. Yelda and Rasit in the Club lounge went above and beyond and made our stay wonderful. They helped with everything from dinner reservations to transportation to advice on things to do. It is a bit different than other club lounges because they serve breakfast in the main... More

Staying in Besiktas

Neighborhood Profile
Besiktas
In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighborhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.
