We have stayed in Le Meridien Istanbul Etiler in Aug 2013. We have booked Junior suite for 9 nights. We were 2 adults and 1 child & 1 Infant.
Check in: The process was fast and efficient, we were a bit early than the check in time as we arrived at 11:45Am. The reception offered us an immediate check in or to wait for a room to be cleaned up with a nice view. And of course we have chosen to wait in the lobby. The staff offered us a free beverages in the club lounge (located in one of the upper floors - forget which). 20 Minutes later our room was ready and our luggage arrived with no hassle.
Room : The suite was spacious and clean and more importantly has very unique view over Moh'd Alfateh Bridge and the Bosphore. (Photo attached). The suite has 1.5 bath which was useful considering we have kids with us. The balcony was a different experience. I have even told my spouse that the view is much better than some of the famous cafes overlooking the Bosphore.
Room service: We had several meals from Room service. The food was good; however, we noticeably faced delays in delivery (30-40 minutes).
Internet: Internet was a part of our package, however, they offer internet for daily use for TL 40-30 (depend on the speed High or regular). I do suggest to get USB connection (internet router) from a local communication company. It would be much cheaper. I have seen ad promoting the same for TL 25/- (device & Service)!.
Check out: Was very smooth and there was some issued in the invoice which were cleared on spot by the helpful staff.
The only drawback of the hotel that you will need a car to travel around the city; however, this is mitigated by quietness of the area (unlike Taksim).
I would definitely recommend people to stay here.
