The hotel is well located close to the esplannade in the Besiktas area. The hotel is in dire need of a revamp. The walls are so thin, you quickly become familiar with the bowel movements of your neighboring guests. The lobby has a very strong smell of furniture polish that is very overwhelming. The service is okay, the team tries... More

I stayed in this hotel last year. It was not a very nice experience. From the service quality to breakfast, everything was so poor that it really got me shocked. I was expecting a better quality to be honest. The only good thing is the location. Even the mini bar (empty) was not working in the room. Why claiming that... More

The location is on the waterfront of ortakoy, which is at walking distance from the nice restaurants at the sea shore. With a view on the bridge that links asia & europe. You can find good turkish restaurants around the hotel. There is no metro tram or similar public transportation, to get there you have to take a taxi, traffic... More

We were staying at this hotel just a couple of weeks ago. We stayed a little more than a week in total towards the end of our trip to Turkey. It was recommended to us by a family friend. The hotel is in a good location right in the middle of Ortakoy, in the middle of all the action. However,... More

The hotel staff were nice enough to tell us weddings are on at the poolside and that music will be played until 12:30 am. We didn't mind the music. You can ask for a room away from the poolside. However, we asked for a queen sized bed and we received 2 single beds. Unfortunately, they had no queen beds available... More

Stayed here 4 night. I had previously stayed here two years ago, its beginning to need a bit of a refurb, and the quality of the fixtures and fitting is showing signs of wear in the standard rooms. Originally in older corner room which was very noisy being at front of hotel back facing rooms are quieter in the week,... More

Just back from sunny Istanbul, so the below are my very personal feelings about the hotel. Good: location - if like would like to be close to Bosphorus or need to stay in Ortakoy due to any reason. Many small eating places and supermarkets around as well as more expensive restaurants and clubs closer to Bosphorus. Take a chance to... More

I've stayed in the Princess Ortakoy hotel three times in the last three years. The quality has declined. The service is fine but the rooms are getting dingier and things break down. I was in a room next to one in which a pipe broke, flooding my room (fortunately I was there). They quickly moved me to another room, but... More

Staying at the hotel for a couple of days, my room backs directly onto the pool area which the hotel rents out to weddings. I have to get up early and the staff tell me a wedding is happening until 2:30am. Loud drums, terrible music, pipe players - a disastrous cacophony of noise ALL NIGHT. Hotel unwilling to do anything... More

Rooms ok and breakfast ok. no water in the pool till June. Great little area lots of cafes and bars all around. Turkish 5 star is not the same as we would expect usually around a 3 star by British standards.
