Arrived to find no trace of our reservation for a day room. This could have been down to the agency or Radisson. Good response from the duty manager who found us a room at the agreed price. Room itself was very tired(3rd floor) with little or no view of the adjacent Bosphorus. Lunch was Ok but fully priced .(It's the... More

What i liked is: Mr. özgür Sezek was very helpful and kind. He gives excellent advises and try to do whatever it is just to make the guests happy. What I dislike: The pillows are horrible, they are very bad and they might prevent me from getting back to this hotel.

We stayed here for 3 nights and had a great time. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and went out of their way to make sure our stay was pleasant. The hotel is located next to the Bosphorus so has plenty of panoramic views. Our room was spacious and modern and the breakfast was good (although extremely pricey). I... More

Not that this is a bad hotel by any means but It just did not work for me. The location is quite picturesque as it is directly on the water but too far from everything this great city has to offer without the use of a taxi. The rooms seemed a bit outdated and the breakfast was just so so.... More

Just that it is right above very lively restaurant terrace serving weekend late dinners and playing loud music till early mornings ;). The hotel is well kept, greatly located in the centre of Ortakoy and compared to other Radissons even... More

I chose this hotel after a stay there last November. This time I was assigned to what they called their "new wing". This was outside the main building and up the drive on a very busy main street. The WIFI did not work, the bath / shower had brown water and the room was too warm. Opening the window just... More

Location of the hotel is amazing and services are fine........rooms are ok, small gym. I visited this place for business, only one issue is the parking was difficult. Breakfast was a breathtaking setting on the Bosporus.
