Hotel's Favorite
I have just returned from my lovely break in Istanbul. My first stay at this particular Shangri La Property and of course it lived up to all our expectations and more. The check in was super easy and efficient, All the front desk were great, all Covid precautions were explained carefully. Ali and the other gentleman at the Concierge were super helpful and guided me to my new favourite chocolatier in Istanbul 'Pelit'... The rooms are super spacious, clean and have all the amenities you would expect in a 5* property. Abdul Rahman was the kind gentleman who left fresh flowers in our room daily, and made sure we had plenty of water and anything else we needed. .. Breakfast was a dream, a great selection of food with the stunning Bosphorus as a back drop, Ufek in particular was wonderful and made sure our breakfast each morning was amazing, he also accommodated us super early on the day we were leaving, which we are very grateful for! Spa access is limited with Covid 19, however this did not stop me from getting a 90 minute DREAM massage from the lovely Puy, her hands worked like magic and I felt reenergised and relaxed. I cannot recommend her enough! Shang Palace is temporarily closed, but some of the items from the menu are available to order in the room service menu, and we tried most of it! My favourite was the seafood soup and noodles... Overall, the property is beautiful, the location is perfect and all the staff are willing to go above and beyond to ensure your stay is perfect. I will be recommending to my family and friends and definitely heading back in the near future.

We had the pleasure of staying at the Shangri-La Bosphorus hotel in Istanbul from 5 May to 4 June, 2022. Our stay was exceptionally enjoyable. The hotel is truly luxurious with rare, genuine treasures of antique Chinese pieces. The location of the hotel is ideal for shopping and sightseeing. The ferry stations are mere meters away for moving around by boat or for cruising on the Bosphorus. The all-day dining restaurant is very pleasant and spacious. The onix tops of the restaurant tables are unique. The chefs, staff and managers go out of their way to please. The restaurant leads to a terrace directly overlooking the Bosphorus. In fact less than five metres separate the terrace from the Bosphorus. The menu provides a wide selection of Turkish, Arabic and International dishes. I highly recommend Katmi, a very delicious Turkish dessert made with pistachio Baklava and goat milk icecream followed by Turkish coffee or tea. The Chang Palace Chinese restaurant offers old time fine dining ambiance with a wide selection of delicious cuisine with very polite, efficient and professional service. For dessert fans, I recommend the Mango Sagoo. Very delicious. For HighTea one should not miss the wide selection of sweets at the Lobby Coffee Shop where comfortable seating and a wide selection of drinks welcome the visitors be it tourists or business travelers. Our experience with the hotel general manager was memorable. His hands-on, direct interaction with hotel guests and his meticulous attention to detail was commendable. Our experience with Reception and Guest Relations was most favourable. The staff were always friendly welcoming and attentive. Specifically, I commend Ms. Merve for her " service with a smile " demeanor. I dealt with the Concierge staff on many occasions and found them most helpful. I remember on one specific occasion when they went out of their way to find us a taxi to take my wife to a hospital accompanied by a nurse. The rooms, especially those facing the Bosphorus are spacious, pleasant and very clean. Beds are comfortable. The bathrooms with their unique marble shower and bath are very inviting. Housekeeping staff provided a highly professional service throughout the day. In my view this is by far the best luxury category hotel in Istanbul. I will not hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for a truly unique experience. Hussain Redha

We choose the hotel for my wifes birthday. Good location because of acces to the port from which you can sail to any places in Istanbul. Thank you for nice service of Guest Relations, and breakfast team. We would like to special thanks to the Head Chef for the birthday tea time. Thank you also to Mr Ozgur for his professional help. Unfortunately front office from arrival to departure was a complete disaster. Its a pity that front office did not show any interest in the customer , especially at a time so important to him. Lack of professionalism also turned out to be the the head concierge who refused to take us by driver rolls royce on the way back to the airport, despite the offer of driver who was the only one who wanted to help us. Apart from the lack involvment of front office staff and concierge , hotels offer comfortable rooms with a nice view of the Bosphorus. On the plus side is location and cusine which may be the basis for choosing this property.
