The Renaissance Istanbul Polat Bosphorus Hotel has a fantastic location just outside of the touristic sights of downtown Istanbul. The view from the Renaissance hotel of the Bosphorus Strait and the Bridge linking Europe to Asia is simply incredible and fantastic. During my booking of the Renaissance hotel I had specifically requested a Bosphorus View Room and when we arrived the hotel not only gave us a view of the Bosphorus but a Corner Suite! The views throughout the day were unbelievable. Room Views are only one part of a great stay as we found both the service and food at the Renaissance hotel were prodigious and extraordinary. I was told before we arrived that the Club Lounge was closed due to the Corona Virus challenges, so I was a bit concerned. What the Renaissance hotel did was to place the 212 Restaurant on the top floor as their replace to the Club Lounge. We were not disappointed as we had all our breakfasts; lunch and some dinners in this extraordinary restaurant/lounge. The hotel and all its’ facilities had in place very strict Corona policies. My entire family felt safe and reassured during our entire stay! We also used the Renaissance hotel’s Airport collection and Airport drop-off service. We were very satisfied with both trips. Our check in and departure experiences was great. The entire Front Desk Team were very professional and extremely helpful throughout our entire stay. Our only ‘negative experience’ during our stay was not due to anything at the hotel, but with our use of a local taxi service to return back to the Renaissance Istanbul Polat Bosphorus Hotel. We discovered that there was a second Renaissance Polat Hotel in Istanbul and on two different occasions our local taxi drivers took us to the Renaissance Polat Hotel {which is in the opposite direction in Istanbul}. After the second mishap we took the hotels business card and if there was any doubt with our new taxi driver I simply gave our bewildered and baffled driver the correct hotel card! All-in-all I know you will enjoy the Renaissance Istanbul Polat Bosphorus Hotel. I highly recommend this hotel for your next stay in beautiful Istanbul. Trust me on this important point.

The best thing about this hotel are the fabulous views of the Bosphorus Bridge, which is beautifully lighted at night. The hotel itself doesn't have much of a lobby, which gives the impression of a lower class hotel. Overall, the hotel is very good though. Very clean and excellent beds and linens. Not much in the way of restaurants or shops nearby though. The staff sent us to the Zorlu Center, telling us it was a short walk, when in fact it is almost impossible to walk to from the hotel due to need to cross massive roads with confusing under- and overpasses.

The hotel is in besiktas area. The hotel deserves its 5 stars. The receiption team is very professional especially Furkan, who offers us a free upgrade to have the view over the Bosphore. The view was a very delicious. Rooms are spacious and clean. They provide water. The hotel is close to many other hotels,Carrefour is at a walking distance of 1 minute, a pharmacy is facing the hotel. The exchange office is at 11 minutes walking distance. It's almost 20 minutes by public transport to Taksim. Note that a bus station is at a walking distance, metro station is.almot 11 minutes walking. The price was verrrrrry affordable considering the rooms, the service and the view. The only negative part is that we didn't get the rooms on time. It was a long 1 hour delay.
