In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighborhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.

During our first visit to Istanbul we were made to feel very welcome at this hotel and the staff were only too happy to help with anything we might ask. With only one day to do or see anything I was delighted to accept the hotel's recommendation of a personal guide who was able to accompany me to the various places I wished to see in the short time available. Eda, my guide, made sure we made the most of these few hours; she was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the places we visited and quietly tailored the hours we spent in a calm, safe and extremely friendly manner so that, by the end of the day I had even seen additional things I thought we wouldn't have time for. We had time for lunch and there was no pressure to rush back by a deadline. She also helped recommend and book our restaurant for the evening - a place with a superb view of the Bosphorous and, crucially, excellent food. We shall certainly be returning to Istanbul and the wonderful hospitality which greeted us during our brief stay.
Thank MTM

Spent 4 days at this hotel, while visiting Istanbul. Very convenient location within a walkable distance to Taksim and other major tourists' attractions. Upon our arrival, we received an upgrade with partial view of Bosporus and that was absolutely fantastic. The staff is best I've had in all my travels. People are nice and kind and helpful. The cherry on top put by Lady Chef during the breakfast time, she offered to cook my scrambled eggs the way locals would eat and she said it will taste great, because she cooked it with love and it did..A treatment like that is priceless. The rooms are nice and clean. Bed is comfortable. We enjoyed the stay and we'll definitely recommend this hotel to friends.

At the outset, I would like to thank and declare my appreciation to TripAdvisor for giving me this opportunity to express my experience during my stay at this hotel. This shows your keenness to develop and provide the right level of hotels to satisfy guests.
1st - At the beginning of the booking process through the Marriott application, my reservation was confirmed after the payment was made. I received a message stating that the quality of the room that was approved had the opportunity to enter club lounge access. I was pleased with this letter and told my wife that the hotel is prefer to upgrade our reservation as we celebrate the 25th anniversary of our marriage. But after we arrived we wanted to enter that hall but we found the employee at the entrance to the lounge prevented us from entering, as she said there was a mistake from the source of the booking in the writing (Room Type). Therefore this disposal from the hotel of course has saddened us, and put me personally in embarrassment with my wife who was psychologically prepared to enjoy that gift . The management of the hotel took no action or provide excuse to this issue.
2nd - There was a problem in the water sources at the bathroom as it gives very hot water from the tap referred to as cold. I inform the call center at the hotel and they sent the plumbing technician but he could not find a solution to that problem. guest reception at the hotel was informed and the problem was not addressed.

Following my previous reviews of hotels in Istanbul. [see my reviews about THE GRAND HYATT as well about the gorgeous ST.regis
I would summarize my review” NOTHING TO WRITE HOME ABOUT IT..”
Indeed the check inn was friendly. Even the empty restaurant staff were friendly
As A PLATINUM member I was upgraded[ I had to ask] and invited to the lounge that I found was useless.[came in the morning no basic breakfast ONLY COFFE FROM MACHINE and bottles of soft drinks in the refrigerator ] an old flowers welcomes you. In the evening very basic minimal food presentation ..
The suite was basic with luxury and not updated. [had a great view]
Is that A RITZ CARLTON? I guess I am used to great RITZ CARLTON WORLD WIDE..
Could be a MARRIOTT and it would meet your expectations

Apparently from now until spring, there are soccer (football) matches happening in the Vodafone stadium that is directly in front of the hotel (Sundays I think). When this happen, the police block off nearly all the roads leading to this hotel and there's tons of pedestrians. So expect rides from the airport to take a really long time. To get to the hotel, I got out of the cab and literally walked up a hill dragging my luggage to go into the back entrance of the hotel because there was no way to get to the front of the hotel. This led to a lot of confusion because the back entrance to this hotel is in this plaza where luggage couldn't fit into the conveyer belt. If there's a soccer game on, it will also be quite loud until at least 10-10:30 pm.

The hotel itself is nice, of course. I had a view of the Bosphorus (and the stadium) and there's a lovely couch / sitting area where you can stare out the window. Bathroom was quite large. The best thing about Ritz's are the really comfy beds though, and this was no different.

Staff were very helpful with excellent dinner recommendations. For those short on shopping time, there's a store behind the reservations desk with a friendly and non-pushy salesman. Excellent turkish delights in there. I bought souvenirs and gifts expecting to pay higher prices for it, and found that when I was outside, some prices were more expensive than what the the ritz store was charging. So go in there!

It's close to Taksim square which is a great place to explore, will defo stay in this area again, as well as the Ritz. The only star is taken off because of proximity to the football stadium which was really hard to navigate through traffic-wise.

I used Marriott points for this stay, so can't speak about its price / value.
