We stayed here for one Saturday night as the last day in our trip to Turkey. We had splurged a little more than we normally would on this as a luxury hotel and were deeply disappointed. This hotel was by a long shot the worst thing about our entire trip. When we arrived at about 6pm on Saturday evening, there... More

Well taken care of at this beautiful, historic hotel. Wonderful location on the Bosphorus. Held a group meeting there with reps from around the world and all seemed to be very satisfied. Staff was very attentive.

Stayed at this gorgeous historic 'yali' for couple nights and we enjoyed every minute of it. I would recommend getting one of the corner rooms which gives the best views of this city as you wake up you feel like you are right on top of the Marmara Sea! We had the breakfast included in our deal and they had... More

The building is a traditional luxury construction but the decor cheap imitations. The breakfast was of poor quality, and the service disaffected. You have to find the waiter to get a second cup of watery coffee. The slighty remote location is great for relaxation but would have been aided by a better atmosphere in the lounge area as the social... More

Located directly on the Boshprus, the hotel offers wonderful views of both bridges and the European Side of Istanbul. You are able to walk to many of the restaurants along the water. The staff is very helpful and gracious. We enjoyed our breakfast buffet offering traditional Turkish foods. The tables are placed over partial glass tiles where the water appears... More

Pros: - Nice building - Luckily, we got the room shown in the photographs and it was pleasant enough - The lady receptionist during the day was helpful and spoke decent English - Good selection of toileteries in the bathroom, but the cream wasn't great Cons: - The "Managing Director (on his business card) / Nightime receptionist" tried hard, but...

I read all TripAdvisor reviews before booking. I was ready for the best and worst ... And I fell in love with this hotel from the entrance, reception, my room , which ticks all the boxes. My room was # 27, overlooking the courtyard. Breakfast is ok, but they will happily make you eggs without any extra charge. Their generosity... More

Rooms are nicely decorated. Feels like the rooms of 100 years ago. What they are lacking is a good service. Breakfast quality is very poor. To my view not anywhere close to what is expected from such a hotel.

Bosphorus Palace Hotel... It was a very nice place to stay with scenery of beautiful bosphorus. I had arranged this hotel to ask my girlfriend if she will marry me, and result was positive. You can watch bosphorus till morning instead of sleeping. From service and cleanliness point of view, it is extremely satisfied for us. As a result of... More

Sure, the location is marvelous, no doubt! But if you would like to sleep overnight think twice because a mosque is right the next building and you will be astonished how modern technologies have improved the level of sound at every sunset, sunrise and couple of other times during a day. My room was at the roof with a small... More
