One of the best experiences I ever had. I would recommend to anyone interested in pure luxury and relaxation. The rooms are spacious with nice, modern furniture where the best was the bed with the superb pillows and comforter, really allowing you to rest superbly. The bathroom was also beautiful, with separated room for the toilet and the shower, plus... More

The Hotel lives up to the Ritz Carlton badge. The service level is excellent from the doorman, front desk, housekeeping and restaurant staff. The building itself is not exactly an architectural masterpiece. The hotel is connected to an office complex. It is a 10 -15 min walk to the surface tram station and Taksim Metro station. We stayed in a... More

From the moment you step into the hotel you know you have made the right choice. The staff at the front desk are exceptional and nothing was too much trouble.They engage with you as an individual not just another nameless guest. I had received an email prior to arrival asking if we were celebrating a special occasion. I said that... More

The view of Marmara sea from your room is the best you can get. Friendly staff. Fantastic restaurants. I loved the bar. Rooms are so spacious and luxury. The quality of food is amazing. The view of Marmara during your breakfast opens your day.

We checked into the Hotel where we were given a traditional hot drink which was lovely! I ordered the drink one evening and happened to mention that I had never had and loved it!

This is a true luxury hotel with large excellent rooms, beautiful public areas, great food and a very responsive staff. We had one of the best breakfast buffets we've ever had, sitting beside large windows look out at the city. And the dinner buffet we had was also excellent with many little dishes to try. Because there were riots in... More

The Ritz-Carlton in Istanbul is one of a class! I have stayed at Ritz-Carlton in other countries, good hotel, but the hospitality, the detailed care for the guest is amazing, never the same to other hotels of the same brand or category! We have used the restaurant for breakfast, food delicious, service amazing. Since you step out of the taxi... More

The Ritz Carlton is a taxi ride away from the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace & Grand Bazzar but is walking distance to Taxsim Square & ferry's to Karakoy. That being said it is a wonderful new facility with AMAZING staff. Since Istanbul is so incredibly large, no matter where you stay, you will need to take a taxi... More
