I've just returned from a 5 night stay at a business function hosted at the Radisson and left with mixed feelings. The hotel is in a good location right next to the Bosphorus although it is a good 30 minutes via boat taxi to the sights. The service from all the staff was very good and the food in the... More

I stayed at this hotel 2 weeks ago for few days and compared to some of the neighbouring ones is a bit disappointing. I had a room facing the main road and it was quite loud. Light switches were not properly responding. It's in a perfect location, you can have a breakfast with a beautiful view but the access by... More

A lot has been said about this hotel location - it's busy, it's bustling, it almost sits on Bosphorus and once you're lucky as we were you will get a room with a splendid view on the water that's hard to forget. As a Concierge member of Radisson we get to stay in lots of Radissons but this one will... More

We stayed at this hotel in July 2015. The reception staff were friendly and efficient, helped us log onto the wifi, gave advice regarding local transport services and which bus stops to get off at for the various tourist destination etc. The room and facilities were modern, clean and air-conditioned. The hotel location is superb right on the shore of... More

I was thinking that the Radisson Blu Bosphorus will be at the same level as the other hotels with same name are.certainly, the price is at the same high or even higher level. But...there are many issues that still needs attention for the hotel to raise in the same class as, for example, Radisson Blu from Bucharest or from Yas... More

The staff were very friendly and efficient, the room centeporary style and very clean. Standard you would expect from a Radisson Blu hotel. views of the Bosphorus stunning. Not sure what was lacking, everything worked but i think it was a little impersonal. Still, i wouldnt hesitate to stay their again.

We stayed here for two nights as the second part of a four-day trip to Istanbul. Having been in Beyoğlu in the city centre, we had deliberately picked the Radisson Blu Bosphorus as it is located away from the centre in Ortaköy. This district is regarded as a trendy area with bars, clubs and luxury hotels, such as the Radisson... More

Staying in Besiktas

Neighborhood Profile
Besiktas
In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighborhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.
