It's a Ritz-Carlton so you would expect the standards to be high - and they are. This would not normally be the style of hotel (a bit too traditional for my taste) that I would stay in, but it was part of a package booked through BA holidays, and I was suitably impressed. It has to be said that it is not the prettiest looking hotel from the outside - and the interior is perhaps getting a little dated - but the hotel itself offers excellent standards of accommodation. Bedrooms are large and very comfortable, and the public areas are luxuriously decorated and well maintained.
It is conveniently-enough located close to Taksim Square, although there is a bit of a walk up quite a steep hill to negotiate if you want get to the square itself by foot. If you are lucky enough, I'm sure that there are rooms with some spectacular views over the Bosporus - but ours overlooked a small park to the side. That said, we had a very enjoyable stay over New Year and the service was excellent.
