Nice hotel for business needs. Location is nice, although I would expect for a better view. I really liked the inner window between the bathroom and the bedroom. You can take a bath and watc TV simultaneously.

We are a danish family of 4 and stayed in July at the hotel. We had two very nice big rooms with conecting doors. The hotel is located perfectly both for shopping and sightseeing, and nice pool area for relaxing. Breakfast bufe had a large varity of both intercontinental and local food. The staff in the restaurant is very professional, discreet, kind and attentive. Overall a wonderful stay and we cant wait to go back to visit both the city, hotel and our dear friends in Istanbul.

Lena Nielsen

Just spent a night on a recent business trip. Very fast and efficient late check-in. Free wi-fi, enormous room, clean, confortable bed, quite silent. I guess it's well positioned not too far from Taksim, didn't have time to check the breakfast having to leave very early to Ankara, however the reception was kind enough to let us have an espresso brought from the restaurant to the reception just before leaving. Excellent service indeed, I would definitely come back again!

Dear Managers, people in charge and everyone who should be dealing with the hotel and with "costumers' service" regarding it:
We would like to express our deep appreciation for the wonderful service we got from all the people/staff/workers we've come across in the hotel. Starting with the amazing reception crew, especially Meryem TAN and Didem AKBAL and the lobby/security/bell boys (who warmly welcomed us- to me it's my 4th of 5th time in Ramada and to my Mom it's the 8th), the dining room and the kitchen people, the housekeeping, the pool people, the coffee downstairs waiters and everyone we might have forgotten. Everywhere, and every given moment we got amazing, reliable, efficient and sweet service, with smiley face and willingness to help anytime or just to make or already great staying to an even greater one.
We've picked this hotel thanks to the very high level of quality and personal service and we shall be coming back again. We were staying in different and beautiful hotels in Istanbul (Marmara-Taxim and Hilton) but the experience we always have in Ramada is by far the best. We thank each and every one of you personally for making this a dream vacation, we wish you lots of success, health and happiness and we hope Ramada will enjoy the prosperity it deserve.
Thank you so much! Hopefully- see you all soon

I was here for a business meeting recently and I can say that the rooms are quiet good, too much space for your comfort, nice sleeping quality, helpful staff, nice meeting facilities if you plan to have a meeting there and a good deal of breakfast buffet. The hotel's restaurants are also very good and swimming pool is also attractive if you have time to visit. The location is quiet good, very close to Taksim, and in case you need there is a metro station just outside the door. Internet connection was free but bad actually, it only received signal when I stood close to the door. Prices might be high sometimes, so if you do not have any budgetary restricts, I would totally recommend this hotel.

I spent a week for business in the Ramada Plaza City Center.
It is supposed to be a 5 star but it is nothing impressing. The rooms are ice, well decorated and you have everything you need.
Regarding WiFi, in theory they have it but there are good and bad internet day, so you never know if the wifi is going to reach the entire room or just by the door.
The swimming pool and spa area close at 7pm, so if you are there on business there is a slim chance you will use them.
Reception is small and usually crowded, so it takes a long time to do anything.
Also, there is a lack of attention to details. My colleague and I had the exact same booking, same price and same room type, but one of us got fresh fruit and a little souvenir in the room, the other one not... doesn't really matter, but it should not happen.

In general, it's ok, but not really a feeling of a 5 star.
