Stayed at the hotel for a 50th birthday celebration for 3 nights. It is a little out of the main city but so much better for that. Take a tram to the end of the line and walk! Perfect location to go back to at the end of a busy day admiring all Instanbul has to offer. A little oasis... More

We stayed at this hotel in order to attend to a business/academic conference. The hotel is amazingly located in the nicest part of the homey neighborhood of Örtakoy. Great places to eat (both local and international food), walk, sail or shop are literally just across the street. Other neighborhoods worth spending lots of times around, such as the chic Nişantaşı,... More

For a $25 continental breakfast, you would expect more than four pieces if toast OR a cup of yogurt, and no fruit, juice or anything. Coffe even cost extra. When I explained this to the front desk, the receptionist literally ignored me. Out of sheer fascination, I tried two more times, always politely, and eventually gave up after zero response.... More

I stayed for a couple of nights at the Radisson Bosphorus, and have only good things to say about the property. The room, a business class with terrace, was quite large, new, with all the amenities, and a lovely terrace with view over Bosphorus.

Very good hotel. Rooms very clean. And the restaurant is RIGHT on the river with good food too. The desk staff could be a bit more helpful.

If your criteria is "Bosphoris view + Deck restaurant", this should be your place. Hotel is a far from the historic center but there are also other things to do and see in Istabul. Very friendly place with a very trendy sushi restaurant. But remerber, Istanbul is a big and expensive city, watch for the extras.
