This is a fine city centre hotel in THE perfect location. The rooms are nice, clean and comfortable with great views of the Bosperous (room 420). The inclusive breakfast although a little limited in choice has all you need to kick start your day. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and I said at the start...the location is... 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

I liked Richmond so much because of the perfect service, comfortable rooms and ideal location at Istiklal Street. One more advantage is a tasty breakfast with traditional Turkish bakery, cookies, cheese

This is a nice hotel. The rooms are rather small but nice. Breakfast was very good. But the best part is the location! Right in the middle of things on Istiklal Street. As noted already, the taxi cannot drop you at the hotel, but must stop several short blocks away, but it is worth the trouble.

The Richmond is excellently located in Istiklal very close to the Tunel and all public transport links therefore. Our room was rather narrow and an odd configuration but clean and comfortable. Unfortunately the window could not be opened as we overlooked the main street. We did not wish to pay an extra £40 each night to upgrade to a room... More

Richmond Hotel is situated on the main pedestrian street in Istanbul - Istiklal - so don't be surprised if the taxi drops you a 5 minute walk away.

The room and bathroom looked better than the photos online in terms of decor. The rooms were a bit too narrow and the walls are thin so you can hear the neighbours sometimes. Of course, staying on Istiklal cadessi one can expect to hear some of the music from the bustling street and shops below, but this was not a... More

This very central situated Hotel on busy pedestrian street is a very good choice for those who want to experience day and nightlife in Istanbul. Very clean but somewhere small modern designed rooms, with all modern comforts available. Metro Etc at walking distance, bars restaurants shops at 10 Meters. Very Friendly and helpful staff, absolutely recommended.
