This Hotel, Radisson Blue Bosphorus has an excellent view. According to me the location wasn't that great. It was close to the Dolmabahce Palace (not walking though). Be prepared to hire a Cab when you want to go some where. And the cabs were a bit difficult to find too. The hotel didn't have a pool which i thought was... More

Room size is half compare to Divan, Intercontinental, TomTom. Deco is 90s, hallway is narrow. Wifi coverage is very poor, either cannot connect or keep dropping every 10-15 minutes. Business Center is closed due to renovation. Maximum of 2 people at the front desk with concierge desk empty. Checked in for 20 minutes, and left for TomTom.

The only 5 stars I would give this hotel is for the location and views it offers. Everything else is below average and is the worst Radisson Blu I have stayed in. Service was almost non existant: - At breakfast : No one cleaned our table from the previous patrons. We ordered our drinks that only arrived after the 4th... More

In a small street, close to the Bosphorus (overlooking it from a chic bar at the hotel). We had a big clean room with a nice and comfortable bed and sitting area including wi-fi. There are small shops and restaurants in the neigbourhood. We will definitely comeback again!

The hotel is very well situated on the coast of the Bosphorus with a perfect view of one of the big bridges leading to Asia. The hotel has a very nice outdoors restaurant with a delicious breakfast (try the egg white). Another big perk is the Coldstone creamery right the corner.

It is easy to dismiss a Radisson hotel but the Radisson Blu Bosphorus defies that stereotype. Delightful location in the Ortakoy neighborhood. Plenty to see just walking around with lots of bistros and outdoor bazaars. Right on the Bosphorus. Rooms are not spectacular but nice. Probably the biggest complaint are the prices in the lounge. $8 usd for a beer... More
