I never stayed at a top notch hotel before and this was a very enjoyable experience. The restaurant had very good food. The pool and spa were fantastic. The staff was great. They arranged transfer to and from the airport which made things much easier (and safer)

Had to stop over for one night and stayed here. From the arrival, greeted by name, to the departure next day I had only very attendant staff around. The room was very spacious and to top clean. Excellent housekeeping staff. Turn down quick and efficient, friendly colleague, but not over the top. Breakfast is great with the life cooking station.... More

We stayed here for 3 days in September 2014, the first night on our own and the next 2 nights as part of a tour package. From start to finish the Ritz Carlton made our stay a pleasure. Because we had been in Istanbul previously, we used our first full day to take advantage of the outdoor pool spa, the... More

We recently enjoyed a terrific stay over a weekend and for us, the difference was the staff. Every single person we interacted with was friendly and helpful. The doormen, security staff, front desk staff and housekeepers were all fantastic. We were three friends traveling together so we got a twin room and a rollaway. The rollaway is apparently intended for... More

Had the most amazing stay at this hotel, everything you would want in a 5 star location, foyer was prestigious, comfortable beds, nice bathrooms made of marble. Staff we're friendly and spoke good english. The Bar on ground floor was breathtaking overlooking the Bosphorus with live music at night. All in all a magical stay and one of the nicest... More

Every summer, on our way back to NYC from Greece, we stop by Istanbul because it is one of our favorite places to visit. This year we decided to stay at the Ritz, which is not usually the type hotels we'd normally stay as we like modern architecture over traditional places. This year, I wanted to stay at a different...

Prior to a sea cruise we stayed at the Ritz-Carlton for 2 nights, A very modern hotel, with stunning views from the bedroom window. Breakfast was very good, with a good selection. We had 1 evening meal in the hotel which was also excellent. The safes in the bedrooms were unfortunately very narrow & as a result some euros we... More

My wife and I stayed at the Ritz for 3 nights in September. The hotel is well situated. Taksim square, Dolmabahce Palace and the tram that will take you to old town are all about 10 minutes walk away. The hotel is very will maintained, the rooms are spacious and very clean, and the service is extraordinary. We stayed in... More

Luxurious hotel with excellent service, perfect location. Liked the focus on security, as you enter the hotel your bags are x-rayed. We felt completely safe and love turkish people. The lobby area while not huge is impressive with beautiful views…The view of the Bosphorus is priceless! Amazing spa and great roof top pool. We loved everything!!!
