Nice pool area, comfy beds, good service, very easy access to/from airport. Food at breakfast was not good though - save your 60 lira. Also, our shower head didn't work. My main concern was a good night's sleep and the beds delivered.

This hotel is located within 2 miles of the airport, so only a short ride in the free shuttle bus or taxi from the airport, so great for a short stopover. The hotel is of a good standard, with 4 nice restaurants on site, so going off site is not needed if you want an easy life. In the local... More

Very close to airport. Free shuttle. Clean rooms. No free wifi which was a little unfortunate but the price of the hotel was reasonable. Wasnt able to check out the pool but from the room is looked very nice. GREAT view with ocean view room.

Istanbul is a beautiful, spectacular city - but it has traffic problems that are some of the worst in the world. Crossing the Bosporus Strait around rush hour is a disaster and can eat up hours and hours. If you are flying out of IST in the morning, the Renaissance Polat is a great choice. It is only 15 minutes... More

Excellent hotel staff very welcoming and the restaurant is worth a visit. Only downside we are unable to eat outside as this is for smokers so if you are a non smoker you must eat inside or be in the middle of smoke!!. We have been lucky on two occasions to be there for the Ramazan meal this was excellent.... More

I'm a Marriott gold member and have been for over 10 years. So I've been to many of their properties around the world. This one is not bad, but it's just not a Renaissance in the same way other hotels are. That brand should be a little bit modern and trendy. This hotel is old and staid. It needs a... More

This is an excellent five star hotel that only gets a four star rating because the number of restaurants it has were all very expensive - especially when compared to the very good restaurant across the road from the hotel. In other ways the hotel could not be faulted. It has two pools, one outdoor and one indoor and both... More

Had the pleasure to stayed at the hotel for my business visit in Istanbul. Hotel was well equipped and staff were very friendly in all departments. Price was very reasonable and the room was very comfortable. However, wifi only available in lobby, no wifi in room (unless you want to pay) which is a little backward compare to the other... More

We have been there for 2 nights. Hotel has the panoramic sea view and foods isn't bad. Pool etc. were good. But there were some minuses: - Rooms aren't well sound isolated and i couldn't sleep because the love game sounds of couple in parallel room. - Hotel needs really renovation because the carpets, beds and shover cabin and other...

My wife and I stayed here the night before our flight back home. It was nice to be close to the airport since we were not sure of the traffic situation and wanted to make sure we were there on time. The hotel is very nice and well appointed but also has a very interesting layout with the rooms on... More
