My wife and I stayed at the Ritz for 4 days at the end of an AMA Danube river cruise. We checked in on the 3rd day of the Taksim protests. We watched tear gas and water canons from our room for the next 4 nights. Everyone else from our river cruise moved to another hotel. We were super impressed with the professionalism and security. We had a great, spacious room with access to the club floor amenities. Great pool deck and 24 hour restaurant. Best part was the service. The staff is simply the best. Everyone was wonderful and very considerate, given the proximity to Taksim. We especially want to give a shout out to Ms Deniz Guley and Ms Natavan. They were both extremely helpful and super friendly. there are other luxury hotels in Istanbul, but I don't think its possible that they could offer better service or comfort.
