Move over Four Seasons (both of you!). I am sorry Shangri La and Kempinski. Raffles wins. This new and beautiful property has amazing everything. It is hands down the best hotel in Istanbul. The key here is service and the fact that the hotel is new and clean, but still feels warm and homelike. There is a shopping center right outside. This property is a winner.

Raffles made our anniversary a truly unforgettable experience. A feeling of total zen overcame us as we were greeted by the friendly staff and entered the spacious, beautifully designed lobby. Our butler, Mustafa, treated us very well and went above and beyond with special touches. Isokyo, the restaurant where Istanbul meets Tokyo, is a must visit! A special mention to King Cem - he and his team have the restaurants and bar running like a Swiss watch. Thank you Raffles!

This hotel is stunning! I got a premier room with a perfect bosphorus view! I could not stop taking enviable pictures! The lobby is one of the best designed lobbys I've seen in my travels. This is a really huge hotel - I like the smaller boutique type hotels but this worked out great. The gym was fantastic - they had an indoor and outdoor section, which i thought was pretty great. They have an indoor and outdoor pool but unfortunately, the outdoor pool was closed which was very disappointing but I think it was attributable to the pandemic situation.

I booked a deluxe room through Accor Hotels site. Hotel generously provided me upgrade to corner premier room on 20th floor. Moreover I was provided both early check-in and late checkout. The room was large, light, spacious in modern style. There was a large terrace with view to skyscrapers and partially view to Bosphorus. Bathroom had both a bath and shower cabin. Curtains and lights and dining bookings operated from room Ipad. I had a lunch in Rocca restaurant and breakfast that I ordered through mentioned Ipad to my room. Some little problems was with balcony door that opened and closed difficultly. Also I noticed two unwashed small coffee spoons. But these problems was irrelevant and don't affect to overall assessment. Many thanks to receprionist Tayfur and his front desk colleagues for concierge for providing of useful information, doormans for calling a taxi, concierge and technic for resolving a problem with balcony door.
