The picture they often use to give the impression that the Richmond overlooks the Bosphorus is from a restaurant which was closed and deserted when we were there. We were disappointed to find that our "superior" room in fact faced the back of a derelict building; when we queried this we were told that only 4 rooms had Bosphorus views... More

We stayed at the Richmond Hotel as part of a small travel group. The location is excellent. It is located in a pedestrian free area of the city.

I and my wife recently stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. I had booked it based on the earlier reviews but I must say I was totally disappointed.

Very good location, near to restaurants, stores, galata tower, also just next to a metro station. going down the street you can easily also get to galata bridge. Breakfast could be better, considering that the orange juice was not natural but some cheap brand juice. For the rest it is ok. Wi fi Connection was very poor in the room... More

We stayed here for 5 nights. All the staff were incredibly helpful and the room was clean and comfortable. Being right on Istikal Cad you are right in the middle of everything and the metro and funicular are just short walk away so it's really easy to get to anywhere in the city. My only criticism is that they advertise... More
