Really good old tupe hotel on The Princess Islands. Ver good rooms, totally refurbished.Good meal. The only bad thing is that people speak a little of English so it is hard to communicate. The room had a beatifull sea view and was big enough. Good location

Every year I stay 1 or 2 nights in Splendid Palace in Buyukada, Istanbul It's a historical place. The general manager Mr. Omer is a unique personality. He makes the place also very special. And the front office manager is also one of the oldest personnels in the hotel. The staff is also very friendly and highly qualified to help... More

This was one of the hotels which was in plan to stay with my wife due to its convenient location and great building look. But the rooms were a big disappointment for us. The building is very old and historic so the rooms and the furniture. We stayed in the entrance floor because those rooms were renovated and in a... More

We stayed at this hotel last year in November. It was a seaview room. It has a small but nice balcony. The room has very high ceiling, so it is a bit hard to get warm. As the bathroom is added later, it's very small and unfunctional. But the hotel itself is very romantic. Especially the elivator and the inner... More

I have stayed several times in this hotel and it never disappoints. It is like going back in time. New visitors gasp with delight at the entrance, the lobby and the inner courtyard with its surrounding balconies. The place just oozes charm. The swimming pool is very nice, the breakfast buffet most generous and sitting outside on the terrace overlooking... More

Having seen plenty of Hotels in the last 20 years, with 4 and 5 stars. and all were on a high level. But what makes the Splendid so unique is its atmosphere. And this excuses a lot of issues, which were mentioned by the previous writers. This hotel is a real 'Grand Hotel'

We arrived at the Splendid Palace after a trek up the hill in very hot weather. Happy to see somewhere that could have a family room we went inside to enquire. The prices advertised on the wall were in $US Dollars - they did not mention rates for family rooms nor did they show the price in Turkish Lira but... More

We stayed here at the end of last season and we utterly charmed by the old world service, the high level of gorgeous rooms and the delightful ambiance. Cannot understand what the other reviewers are on about. It's very lovely and almost unique. And what a location.

Can't make up my mind about the Splendid Palas Hotel built in 1908. The interior fabric and furnishings of the building needs a colossal investment to elevate its old world splendor into the 21st century. But for those of you, my wife included, I would say it's 'just the ticket'. Beware, the pool does not open until well into the... More

I recently spent 1 night here and already miss the quirkiness of it all. The fact is that if it was refurbished back to it's former glory the prices would probably triple so you have to be forgiving of the slightly tired look. The room was very spacious with a separate room with a single bed overlooking the pool. TV... More
