Firstly I am a fan of this brand. so perhaps I am biased from the outset. This hotel lives upto the other Carltons I have stayed in. Indeed I would say it surpasses them. If you want an excellent calibre of staff and food that is imaginative, fresh, well presented {and priced at a very reasonable level} then this will... More

Superb hotel in historic Istanbul. Great facilities,service & room quality exactly what you would expect of the Ritz Group. A little bit out of the City which involves a white knuckle taxi ride but well worth the experience

What more could you expect, awesome service, brilliant staff, fantastic rooms and a fab view of Istanbul. Food is also of very good standard. A little outside the centre but a short 10tl trip in a taxi gets you where it is! This hotel also has a great view and is so close to besiktas football ground.

Stayed in the hotel October 2014. It is exactly what you would expect from any RC hotel. It's clean, decor is classy, staff is extremely helpful. The view of the hotel overlooking the hotel is magnificent; however currently there is construction going on in front of the hotel which ruins the view completely. One downside is the the lounge; I... More

This Ritz Carlton has what you expect from a RC in Istanbul: premium, clean, excellent staff, great breakfast & an overall great customer experience. The outdoor spa is minimal but a great opportunity to get away a bit from the buzziness of Istanbul. The staff are very friendly & always keen to serve the customers. Cons: - there is currently...

I spent 2 nights at the Ritz-Carlton last November. No complaint about the room and the hotel is classy and classic at the same time. The 2 issues to consider when selecting this hotel is that it is a bit far from the touristic hot spots. It is only 5 minutes from Taksim square but about 45 minutes from Hagia... More

We had a 24 hour flight layover in Istanbul after spending two weeks in Nepal and chose the Ritz. It was an excellent stay, we booked a city tour guide who was extremely knowledgable about the city. We had excellent massages at the spa. We ate at the casual restaurant and the food was very good. The room was very... More

Excellent service and great for business. The hotel arranged early checking as my flight landed at 5am in the morning and I was able to shower, settle in and have a nice breakfast before my first meeting. Rooms were comfortable. The most memorable was the excellent service and friendly staff. They helped with all my queries and requests.

This is probably one of the best places to stay in the city of Istanbul with top service and staff. The room was to the satndards of the Ritz family and the services provided also. The little let down was the Blue restaurant which was closed on top due to weather conditions but the food selection was so so. Overall... More

Stayed here recently as a party of three couples staying on the Club Level. Rooms are large with plenty of space and big comfy bed. I did feel that the pillows were on the soft side but I expect that there would have been a selection if we had asked. I tend to sleep on rock solid pillows though! Bathrooms... More
