This is a great place to stay in Istanbul. The rooms are well appointed. The hotel is within walking distances of many of this cities historic sites and restaurants. The views from most rooms are amazing. Satff was very helpful and pleasant in assisting me to retrive my luggage which had been detained st Chearles de Gaulle airport.

I've never written a review whilst still at a hotel before, but this place deserves recognition. My sister was coming to Istanbul for business and I decided to come with her and have a mini break. It started at check in, Aslihan noticed whilst taking a copy of our passports that it had been my sisters birthday 2 days before,... More

I haven't seen such staff. They did a great job, I am more than satisfied with the service. Don't forget to taste Bosphorus and Bleu Mojito cocktails. A lovely place offering an amazing view of Bosphorus.

I stayed at this hotel three times already and enjoyed each of my stay. The rooms are great and cozy and bathroom is decorated with traditional turkish tiles - a very nice touch! The only dissadvantage is lack of balconies in rooms as well as Ritz has no private territory for a little walk. They have good indoor and outdoor... More

We enjoyed this Ritz Carlton and the standard king room was spacious with a view across the Bosphorus. Bathroom was spacious, modern and very clean. We arrived in Istanbul as a port for a Seabourne cruise departure. After having left the chaos of the Istanbul airport this hotel was a nice respite. The club was comfortable and served essentially a... More

Only stayed one night at this Ritz on stopover for Oceania Cruise. Very thankful I did! Airline lost my luggage. Istanbul airport staff seemed very uninterested in locating my luggage. I believed I would be boarding the ship without my suitcase. However, the concierge staff (Serkan and others) on three different shifts all worked tirelessly to get my luggage delivered... More

We stayed 4 nights at the Ritz Carlton in Istanbul recently. We had booked 2 Club floor rooms and the hotel upgraded one of the rooms to a suite which was a very nice gesture. The rooms are excellent - spacious, really comfortable, aesthetically nicely done, great bathrooms, and we thought the Club floor facilities were very comfortable. (If there... More

I should have known when my travel agent advised "that is not a hotel we typically recommend in Istanbul". Nice touches such as piano player in the lobby more than offset by: 1) airport style security (must go through metal detector and baggage X-ray to enter hotel -- no other luxury hotel in Istanbul does this), 2) inconvenient location far...
