Buildin and staff are great. Location is ideal. But the view is splendid. You have to get a room with the seaview. There are things to improve such as hot water and shower with rain effect but still its worth a stay.

Horrible reception service, if I was in the hotel business I would sack that girl immediately. Breakfast was a poor disorganised affair; terrible weak coffee and flies everywhere. Not a good place. The old Splendid hotel is a fantastic building but the hotel staff need to up their game big time to make it successful again. The current standards were... More

Our family with small grandchildren recently stayed here for one night B&B. Access to Princes Island is by a pleasant half-hour ferry crossing from Istanbul. On disembarking we could see the hotel uphill a few hundred yards away; we headed towards it pulling our cases, and were confronted by a long flight of nearly100 steps. We subsequently found that there... More

We stayed for three nights, though we were originally booked for two. Came with our teenagers and had one one of the happiest vacations in a long time. The hotel was beyond charming and even from the first moments we were smitten. A gorgeous, tiny wedding was taking place in the interior enclosed courtyard as we entered and my daughter... More

This hotel is an excellent place to stay on Buyukada. Close to the ferry terminal (with staff that will help you take your bags up the hill), this hotel looks great and is a perfect location. The island has no cars so beware of taking too much luggage, otherwise ask the hotel to bring a trolley to the ferry (make... More

Before i stayed here for 2 nights, i read about it on tripadvisor. And i observed that non of the previous reviews were taken into consideration by the business owners and nothing has changed. The hotel is located in a very nice area with a beautiful view, and the palace is really charming. Unlike other reviewers i loved breakfast with... More

Had a one night stay on a Sunday evening with an upgrade to a room with a balcony overlooking the Bosphorous and port. The check in and check out is rather protracted but the overall experience was excellent. The bedroom and bathroom were clean and perfectly adequate but the real bonus is the ground floor with its exquisite lounge and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Splendid Palace Hotel…. A magnificent building with silvery domes and red shutters, facing the Marmara one side and the city of Istanbul on the other… a hotel in historical symbiosis with nature, retaining the nostalgic ecstasy of the past in Büyükada,s unique, peaceful and relaxing island atmosphere far removed from the stress creating nature of the city. In Büyükada as well as the other Princes Islands, horse drawn carriages are still the only means of public transportation.. Splendid Palace Hotel was inaugurated in 1908. Though inspired to some extent by ‘Art Nouveau’ the hotel clearly displays an east /west synthesis in architectural design with its bright inner couryard encircled with rooms, and the pillars on floors around the couryard.There are 70 rooms and 4 suites to accommodate 134 guests. Central heating is available for most rooms, and all are equipped with shower toilet and telephone. A restaurant, seating 90 people indoors and outdoors, offers to guests select dishes of Turkish as well as global cuisine. The swimming pool in a verdant surrounding of tress is the outcome of a building design which is in harmony wich nature. The Splendid Palace Hotel is one of Turkiye's few hotels which have been assigned special status by the Tourism Ministry , due to its being an unforgetable historical and cultural heritage… ... more   less
