Radisson Blu Hotel Istanbul Asia
Ranked #188 of 1,163 Hotels in Istanbul
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 5, 2013

Since it first opened, I have stayed several times on business at Radisson Blu Istanbul Asia, because it's good value for money and conveniently located close to our local sales office.
The hotel itself is a modern contemporary design as you would expect for a brand new Radisson - the bedrooms are not huge, but clean, well maintained and functional for a business traveller - also free Wi-Fi - I've always enjoyed staying here and have never had an experience that has made me the grumpy traveller that I can be.

I have always found the staff friendly, welcoming and helpful.
For evening meals, the Core restaurant serves good quality food and variety catering to all tastes.
During my recent stay, I was astonished to find the breakfast buffet cost more than a 2-course evening meal with drinks in the same restaurant - the quality and selection of breakfast was good, but I think a price of 79.5 Turkish Lira is extortionate - this is the only negative point I have to make and I'm not personally paying the bill!

From my last trip, I managed to fly into Istabul SAW airport on the Asian side and therefore only a 40-mins taxi ride to this hotel - would highly recommend this option if you're travelling on business

Pleasant enough business style hotel, nice low-key lobby but dingy meeting rooms and small rooms. Very friendly staff, wifi good, breakfast OK, limited air-con controls in the room. All in all, just above average so far...the things that knocks it back is the location: a long way from the airport, from the sights in town and from the range of dining options most tourists want.

This hotel is not for tourists. It took us 2 hours on a taxi to get from the airport to the hotel. The ride cost us TL 120 (about USD60). On reaching the hotel, we found that the room was small & and that there were limited dining options within walking distance. Despite the limited menu, we decided to eat at the Core, coffee shop. Though the staff was enthusiastic and friendly, the food was bland. By early evening, my husband developed food poisoning symptoms which we suspect was caused by unhygenic vegetables in the grilled chicken salad. He was sick all evening and we were lucky to have carried necessary medication.
The next morning when we informed the manager that we would like to check out and move to another hotel for the rest of our stay (2 nights), she informed us that no refund would be possible. We were left with no choice but to stay on.
Major tourist attractions like Taksim Square, Egyptian Bazaar, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace etc are at least an hour away by taxi and will cost you USD 30-60 one way.
So if you are a tourist and decide to stay at this hotel, make sure to budget at least USD100 a day towards taxi fare. You would need to take a taxi even to have a bite.
One friendly trip that the hotel did not give us - You can take a taxi from the hotel to Kadikoy and a shared taxi (Dolmus) to Taksim square. This will slightly reduce your financial woes.

Great business class rooms. One of the better designed rooms in terms of efficiency.
Breakfast is good, wifi connection rapid. The challenge is if you need to go to the European side, traffic is a problem and you will need the application IBBCEPTRAFIK to plan your trips. To the airport taxi ride is good about 50 usd.

The hotel is absolute value for money. The rooms are clean and well maintained....and even then if you have any problem ... the staff will attend to it urgently or will go forward and change your room(our AC was not working that well). Breakfast is elaborate enough and if you want they can pack somethings for your little one ....(I was traveling with my one yr old). The hotel can get you a taxi in no time ....costs around 50-60 Turkish Lira to Taksim square...
As for the amenities-there is an outdoor as well as an indoor pool ... both are good. Spa and gym are fabulous .....I had a memorable stay....Thanks to the staff....

Room Tip: Lower floors have the pool view .... higher floors have the city view and the night view is also ama...

The hotel is good for business travelers.
Its clean, rooms are comfortable, but it is not luxuries.
breakfast buffet is ok.
staff are good and helpful.
Free internet is a plus
I would go back if I have business in the same area.

Room Tip: Choose higher floor if you are not a smoker, it is less noisy.
