We stayed 3 times in Raffles Hotel and they amazingly amaze us each time with the hospitality and top service starting from the doorman to the rest of staff. last time we traveled with our kids and they made sure of all arrangements for them in the room by gender and age plus the gifts and balloons 🎈 were so much fun for them . They take in consideration all the necessary things you might need for kids to feel like home ( high chair, nappies , special toiletries for kids ...etc) Idil was our butler during our stay , she welcomes you with great smile that you can see and feel even with the mask on ❤ all enquiries are met in no time .. yet she arranged a surprise birthday cake for my husband as his birthday was the day we check out .. We received an upgrade to a beautiful suit the accommodated the family perfectly 😀... Raffles istanbul hotel is a destination not only accommodation 😍 Thank you Idil and all staff of Raffles istanbul hotel for the hospitality and top service

Our 7th stay at Raffles in the beautiful Bosporus suite with spectacular view. The hygiene measures are very high standard including masks and hand santizer provided daily as needed. The concierge helped with our required COVID testing and provided helpful advice regarding city curfews. The food continues to be very high standard.

For the 17th time, from March 22 to April 3, I stayed in the signature room of this hotel, which has a wonderful view of the Bosphorus. It was as enjoyable as ever. As always, they provided us with excellent service and a good feeling. Kind and helpful staff, especially in the reception and concierge department, especially Nodira Allabergenova 🙏🙏, who carefully and patiently guided us very well and solved many of our problems. The best hotel in Istanbul and the best hotel staff

Valparaiso, Chile41 contributions91 helpful votes
By far the best aspect of the hotel was the service. The butler and concierge service is top notch - In particular, the butler Merve is top. 10 out of 10, as good as they come. Charismatic, attentive to detail, effective. She is one of the best butlers I have ever experienced. - Yunal of room service is also excellent. - Good location and great to be connected to the zorlu center mall - Japanese restaurant good, the Rocca restaurant lackluster - Design/aesthetic of lobby and public areas is off/strange - The suite rooms are good - Very strange how there is limited hot water in the shower/bath\ - Gym area is good and well managed.
