One of the fine things in life, fine place to stay; clean, spacious, luxurious, elegant with unrivalled Customer Service to match. If you are looking for the best then you are in the right place and walking distance to Taksim Square.

Wanted to love this hotel with wonderful views of the Bosphorus but came away confused and frustrated. We had looked forward to staying here at the end of our trip in Turkey. On check in the prices were quoted in Euro's for club level. We later found that they where in fact in TL. Wonderful room with the best view... More

Dear Seniors2Melbourne, Thank you for your candid feedback. Thank you especially for allowing me to recognize my colleagues Onur and Korhan. Please note that minibar prices are quoted in Euro +VAT, there is in fact a foot note on the same size at the bottom of the page, I personally checked. In the final bill, all expenses are converted in... More

From the moment you step up to the Reception Desk you know this is going to be a fine experience. The rooms are impeccable with beautiful oppulent furnishings, the bathrooms spacious, elegant marble and very well lit. Bedding great, and service wonderful. We were pleasantly surprised when my wife's book (left open face-down on the nightstand) was later discovered to... More

Just completed a stay at the Ritz Carlton and it exceeded my expectations in every way. We were celebrating a 50th birthday and Ms Atil at the hotel surprised my friend with a small cake and champagne in the room when he checked in. The next morning at breakfast, the entire staff sang happy birthday and presented him with delicious... More

Just completed a four night stay here. The staff was exceptional - everyone was at your service without being overbearing. Breakfast buffet is one of the best I've experienced. The views of the Bosphorus were awesome. The only negative was getting in and out of the hotel to go anywhere, the traffic in Istanbul is the worst in the world.... More

Impressive pretty much sums it up. Service, Property, Food, Room. I was very fortunate when I checked in that my Marriott status (lifetime platinum) was recognized. I was given access to their Club Lounge level which made everything good, even better. They had food out almost all day long, complimentary alcohol, and a Nespresso machine :) It was a great... More

This is a beautiful hotel and the staff is amazing. They always had a smile on their face and were always happy to help any way they could. Our room was large, and always well serviced. I also appreciated the enhanced security at the hotel. The only thing I didn't like about the hotel was the location. It's a little... More

Our stay here was amazing! Great rooms and impecable service! The executive floor is really worth the extra bucks. The Turkish Ammam in the Spa is a MUST, if you don't try it you missed one of the best experiences in Turkey!

This was my first time to Istanbul, and I was so happy when I was shown to the room and found this beautiful room of the Bosphorous Straits.
