This hotel was a brilliant choice for us. Was convenient enough to get to all the major city attractions by taxi without taking too much time or money. There is a small riverside town about a 5 minute drive away called Ortakoy. We went here every night for dinner. There was a lively atmosphere there. We also went on a... More

I'm during a 5 nights stay in this hotel. At the first glance, it was a 5-star well equipped hotel. But as time went by staying at this hotel, I have noticed some big faults as follows: 1- the breakfast bar is poor; the diversity and the quality of goods presented are really disappointing for a 5-stars hotel. 2- the...

The location is up slope from the historic waterfront and this gives a panoramic view of this vast metropolis from the upper floors of the hotel. We were there on business for several days and the top floor meeting rooms are fitted out well. The service was faultless; wifi in the common areas was provided free. Breakfast is ample.

Stayed in the renaissance Bosphorus for one night during a business trip. Unfortunately I could not stay longer. The hotel is well and very beautiful equipped, you can see that it is part of the Marriott group. What makes this hotel unique is the fantastic view you can have from the rooftop terrace - the Bosphorus just looks amazing!

Stayed in one of the hotel suite .. Hotel is located at an uphill, It's a nice hotel if you like to get a bosphorus view (obviously, u need to pay extra for the view, not worth staying in this hotel if u don't care about the view) The hotel is not very well known to taxi drivers. Make sure... More

I have stayed in this hotel on an business trip. The hotel is little bit away from the market area. The breakfast is good but not lavish. The rooms are comparatively smaller. A kind size room may be too small for a 2people and a Kid. However location is good. The staffs are though helpful but could have been better... More
