Everything is just perfect in this hotel. The way you are experiencing hospitality, friendly staff, great restaurants and awesome view, but the location is a bit so so. difficult to start you walk into Istanbul, as it is a bit isolated on a steep hillside. Don't get me wrong, it's a great hotel to stay and I return here as... More

This is great a hotel in Isntabul. Even if the hotel is getting "old" and not fashion/fancy, the reality is that the quality is still there at all levels, welcome, reception,dining, rooms, WiFi, Service, ... and of course location near Taqsim and Bosphore

Everything about this hotel is first class except for the location. Its not too out of the way but not as centrally located as we would have liked. Service was phenomenal. We had a very early checkout and the hotel sends you on your way with a box breakfast.

Extras done right! Slippers, chocolates, black out curtains, wonderful bedding, beautiful soaps, etc Service was really incredible -always going the extra mile. The pool was so beautiful - infinity with a ceiling painted as a blue sky. Location perhaps not ideal, but for that kind of luxury, the price was a steal.

Spent a long weekend in Istanbul with friends, staying on club level at Ritz-Carlton. Re Hotel- excellent rooms. Service friendly and efficient. Club Lounge great value for money. Hotel only 10 minute walk to tram which goes directly to the main attractions. Re-City, fantastic melting pot, great attractions, clean, people friendly, and felt safe at all times. Definitely going back.

Hotel is a standard barer of all Ritz Carlton hotels. Our stay was absolutely wonderful. We were on Club Level so the breakfast, snacks and cocktails were amazing. Great lounge to unwind and relax in. Staff was extremely helpful. Spa is beautiful and treatment was so relaxing - didn't have the courage to try a traditional hammam in the City... More

Ritz-Carlton really knows how to do comfort. We just got back from three days/nights in Istanbul. The beds were luxurious, the bathroom was sumptuous, and we had slippers and chocolate by the bed every night. Black out curtains and great soundproofing meant we slept incredibly well. The spa was lovely with a steam room, sauna, hot tub, and pool. The... More

Service is very efficient and staff are very friendly. It has great views, but a bit of a trek to get to the tram (kabatas) which is about a 10 min walk down a hill. Note that kids are not allowed in the spa and pool before 9 am and after 5 pm. Also you will be told to be... More

The hotel is located within a nice part of town. Nearby historic areas, shopping and great dinning. The staff was freindly, however, some of the lobby employees seemed more interested in the computers verses serving the customers. This hotel offers a great health club, dinning, enjoyable bars and typical Ritz amenities.
