The Ritz Istanbul is a part of a high rise complex building, like the Boston MA. The hospitality is outstanding as expected from the Ritz. High security makes the entrance a bit confusing, but better sleeping in peace. The construction in front of the Hotel a bit annoying for the view nothing else to complain.

The Ritz-Carlton in Istanbul is a wonderful and modern hotel with a nice, central location. The hotel is near the Bosphorous, but closer to the tourists sites than most of the other up-scale hotels in Istanbul. The staff is great, especially if you purchase access to the club level (you should). Regarding restaurants, you should venture out and experience restaurants... More

They were delicious and we went back daily to snack on them. Our room was nice with perfect views do the Bosporus with a huge wall of windows showing the view. The rooms themselves were... More

I must confess I am one of those very hard to please guests. My gf and I needed some down time and headed to Istanbul, for the first time.

Our first family trip to Istanbul. So glad we chose to stay at the Ritz. Denny's, the club manager, was a wonderful hostess. Each day after our adventures she would greet us with treats and here are stories. Highly recommend for families with children. Room service was excellent. The pool great fun. And the breakfast buffet beyond compare. Easy to... More

The hotel is well located and the rooms are nice although I have yet to succeed in getting an upgrade to an Bosphorous view room. The service is really great and all the staff goes out of their way to make everything perfect. After the first day, everyone greats you by name. The flowers in the hotel are really beautiful...
