Great location right on the water front. Stayed in a wet February, but bet the waterfront terrace overlooking the Bosphorus is incredible during the summer. Ate an evening meal in the restaurant and enjoyed drinks and a snack in the bar - both excellent. Free WiFi and wired internet could be quicker, but its free!

We were only booked into the hotel for one evening so didn't have time to fully use the facilities but were really impressed with what we did find and use! The hotel is along the Bosphorus and in some great other company like the Kempsinki etc. We were greeted at check in by some friendly staff who advised us that... More

We stayed in a superior room for 4 nights recently. Staff were generally very good and friendly and helpful. The rooms are modern with a king bed but we found them quite small for a 5 Star standard property and also the bathrooms were not large or luxurious. We constantly felt we were stepping around each other... there wasnt anything... More

Stayed at the Radisson on business for a week having previously stay at the Point. The location/ view are fantastic and the rooms were extremely comfortable- although the lack of a bathrobe was something that I missed. Close by there are cute market stalls in the evenings and nice restaurants- I particularly enjoyed The House just beside the hotel. However... More

You should know the worth of your hotel and its deserving stars when none of the cab drivers give you an unfamiliar nod at the mention of the name of your supposedly 5 star hotel.

We were upgraded to an apartment type. It had kitchenette you can hideaway with some louvre doors, and a spacious walk-in closet. The room was very modern and beautifully furnished. It was located on a adjacent street from the main hotel so I didn't really try room service. However, I thought the quaint village behind us had such bohemian qualities... More
