Hotel's Favorite
Such a beautiful hotel with an absolutely breathtaking view from the rooms. There are so many positives about this hotel as it seems that every detail was considered and it was comfortable in every way. Was there for business and had multiple breakfasts and lunches there - all were excellent with plenty of variety. The location is a bit off the beaten path, but easy enough to get where you need to go, and staff always willing to help out. Just plan sufficient time for the traffic. Also possible to walk along the water to get to several nice restaurants in any direction. On that same note, delightful location to run along the water. All the staff I encountered, regardless of role were lovely and always helpful. Absolutely 100% recommend this hotel.

I liked everything - room quality, perfect breakfast and of course breathtaking Bosporus view. It is quite far from the main tourist attractions but in a charming place with a big number of restaurants around. Spent here only one day (may be if I would have spent more, I would notice something to be improved) and left this hotel with only positive impressions.

This hotel is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. Although far from many things travelling is easy by host of taxi from the hotel. Hotel staff are always happy to help with booking and making arrangements for things. Truthfully worth every penny. The restaurants and spa are a must try.

Good hotel and hospitality. The issue we had was that the breakfast had almost no vegetarian spread. Rest was all good. I highly recommend if you are not a vegetarian and are ok with the distance from center.

The view from the room was breathtaking especially mid-morning and late at night. One issue I had with the staff was not changing the beddings however I called the reception and it was immediately rectified. the other major issue I had was that the breakfast options were not accomodating for international guests as my partner and I was always forced to go out to eat. Not only were they repeated daily but also we could barely eat most of the dishes.

Lovely view from a window on the Bosphorus bay and hills of Istanbul. Rooms are big and well equipped, but need some redecoration to get *****. Relatively nice swimming pool and gym. Breakfast are ok, but still comparing to other five star hotels rather “nothing special”.

The Grand Tarabya Hotel has a very nice location facing the Bosphorous Sea. I would like to commend the staff of this Hotel that goes an extra mile to make their customer happy and satisfied. Ms Magdalini from the front desk/ Reception, also the people from the Concierge Mr Polant, Mr Umit and another guy who stayed with me until I finished my flight bookings. The cleanliness is very commendable. The hotel staff were all courteous and friendly, language is not a problem because most of the staff are bi-lingual. I would definitely recommend this place for your next visit in Istanbul.

Toplantı ve Konaklama için gittim. Boğaz Manzarası çok etkileyici ve toplantıya konsantre olunamayabiliniyor. Odalar çok şık ve banyo dan bile manzaraya erişebiliyorsunuz. Personel , karşılama uğurlama herşey çok iyi. Öğlen Açık büfelerinin menüleri gelişime çok açık. I went for a meeting and stay. The Bosphorus view is very impressive and you cannot concentrate on the meeting. The rooms are very stylish and you can even access the views from the bathroom. The staff, welcoming and farewell and all inclusive are very good. The menus of the noon buffets are open to development.
