Istanbul, Turkey
Most people would think looking at a map that this hotel is in a great location. Let me first say that if it is unparalleled views of the Bosphorus you are looking for no other hotel can beat the Ritz Carlton Istanbul. You will get the best view of the city either from your sea view room or from one of the many different spots the hotel offers. I should also say that the rooms are very nice and up to date. However the hotel itself offers only small terraces and a tiny pool, and not much space to walk around. The worst part of the hotel is that although you are close to most checklist attractions it is located in absolutely the worst hit place in the city traffic wise during the rush hour. It will take you half an hour to drive a few hundred meters to Taksim Square or Nisantasi (walking is a much better choice), and good luck going anywhere farther during rush hour. I think especially during summer when there is good weather there are much better choices around town. You can try one of the hotels in Nisantasi (also lots of traffic) for walking around for shopping and cafes right outside your hotel, or try something on the Bosphorus with nice gardens. If you want to be real close to historic sights try a hotel in Sultanahmet district.

We stayed here for a few nights on the arrival and departure from Turkey. Good location. Short walk to Taksim Square. We did not try their spa, but understand is one of the best in the city. Friendly staff and perfect service. That is 5 star service.

Begum, Ryan & Ayten from staff are exceptionally professional and friendly! They make sure you know and have everything to enjoy the best experience at the spa. I recommend Budi for both Hammam and massage any day. I get deep tissue massages often and this is by far one of the best I’ve ever received. She’s very intuitive, friendly and professional. She checks-in with you often and make sure to give you exactly what your body needs. 10/10 overall and def coming back.

Make sure to get a room with a view of the Bosphorus river which is absolutely spectacular! Looking at the river with a coffee in hand and a magazine in the other makes you want to stay in the room for the entire trip. Yes the view is that amazing. The reception and concierge were very helpful when arriving and during our stay and were happy to assist us when needed. The breakfast buffet was very nice with fantastic service and the staff were very very friendly. Their Simit with cream and honey 🍯 is highly recommended! If we ever come back to Istanbul we would definitely stay here again for a longer period!

Such an amazing experience and highly recommended! I had AHMET for hammam and JUNI for massage - both were incredible and knew exactly what they were doing! Reception team was also so friendly and helpful. Great service all around and can’t wait to go back!
