Reviewed June 26, 2012

I cannot saw enough about the level of service at this hotel. From the front door staff to the room service delivery this hotel is all 5 stars. We arrived in Istanbul very late so we had arranged a car service pick up through the hotel, the driver was great and waiting for us at baggage claim with our name on an Ipad, the car was clean and comfortable. We arrived at the hotel and even at 1:00am the bell staff was waiting and helped us get into the lobby. The front desk check in was easy and friendly, we were walked to our room and it was beautiful (Bosporus view room (711))!!! The room was elegant and beautiful with a sitting area, beautiful bath and very comfortable bed. The evening view was nothing compared to the view in the morning wow. Since we had been travelling we were hungry and ordered room service at 1:30am which came quickly was as ordered and delicious. We are Marriott Gold so I am not sure if that was part of this but there were many little extras like a snack tray.
The next day check out was smooth and the desk staff offerred many suggestions on local things to do. We also ate lunch at the terrace restaurant and can recommend it, I had the most delicious burger I really wanted an Iced Tea and although it is not on the menu our waiter made it for me and it was great. Overall I cannot say enough about this property.

Room Tip: Bosporus view room worth the extra cost it is beautiful

We had an exceptional experience at this hotel from check in to departure.

We arrived at the hotel at 9am (check in is around 12pm) and were treated to Turkish tea and cookies while the staff prepared our room for check in around 9:20am. We received an upgrade and had a Bosporus view room (711). The view was amazing! We had such fun watching the boat traffic. The room had a bedroom, sitting room, full bath, and half bath. The room was lovely it had a great modern Turkish feel.

The breakfast (which was included in our room rate) was very good. In addition, we dined in the restaurant for lunch. They had some great traditional Turkish options as well as continental options for the less adventurous.

The spa is also not to be missed. There is a great pool and traditional Turkish Bath that can be used by hotel guests.

Finally, the best asset at this hotel was the great staff. They went above and beyond to help us confirm tours, transfers, etc.

We stayed here over a long weekend in May 2012. The staff were very hospitable and the rooms were very clean with comfortable beds. If you are lucky you will even get a room with a view of the Bosphorus. Very handy for boat trips to the islands in the Sea of Marmaris and a short taxi ride to the old city with the Blue Mosque and other sights.

We arrived at The Ritz Carlton Istanbul on 5/25/12. We were on a cruise and only stayed 1 night as the ship was sailing to it's next port the next day. At check-in we were greeted with Turkish Tea and Turkish Delight. We were also upgraded to the Concierge Floor and recieved a huge corner room with a view of the Bosphorous. On that level there was complimentary lunch when we arrived, which was delicious! We also recieved many surprise chocolate treats in our room. The bathroom was marble, had double sinks, a stand-up shower & separate tub with luxurious amenities. We ate dinner at the restauraunt off the lobby, which was delicious! The staff there were all extremely nice & helpful. The bed was very comfortable. The complimentary breakfast the next morning on the Concierge Floor was also delicious! We were able to check out right on the Concierge Floor, which was so easy. Again the staff was amazingly attentive, giving superb service. We felt like celebrities! They gave us a lovely gift as we left.

This hotel is absolutely fabulous. From service to food to...you name it! Just a 5 star experience! From arrival to departure, everything is personalized. The location is a bit out of the way from the center but not far out of reach and still within distance of other things for the times you do not feel like riding the tram for 15 minutes into the city. The spa and pool are fabulous, as was the gym. Truly what a hotel and hotel service should be! It's worth every penny! Highly recommend!

The place is comfortable and the service is great. On top of this even if you don't have Bosforus view room you can admire Bosforus at breakfast. And believe, you will a dmire it.

I recently spent 5 days in Istanbul, Turkey for a business meeting and was booked at the Ritz Carlton - Istanbul for my stay. From the moment I arrived at the property, every bit of the service was, indeed, 5-Star! The room was comfortable and was a good value for the price, but the service, the food, and the location all combined made this the 'perfect place to be'. There is an amazing view of the Bosphorus that I was able to enjoy partially from my room, but that I enjoyed every morning at breakfast.

Room Tip: As for a corner room or a room with a Bosphorus view.
