Balayi gecemizi gecirdigimiz, olaganustu otel. Ustelik mukemmelligine gore cok uygun fiyata sahip. Bogaz'in isiklarini izlerken ve dalga seslerini dinlerken uyumak bile gelmiyor insanin icinden, sabah odaya gelen kahvalti da oldukca mukellef, temiz bogaz havasi da cabasi.

Best place to stay in Istanbul to experience Bosphorus, with the lights and sound of the waves during the night and fresh air in the morning. It has a very nice staff, amazing breakfast, and very reasonable price if you consider that you are staying in a mansion NEXT to the Bosphorus. Strongly recommended

We arrived to the tunes of Bill Haleys "rock around the clock" hardly an auspicious start, to find a wedding party in full swing, we had to gingerly pick our way through their reception with our suitcases like a thief in the night, nearly bumping into the wedding cake in the process (well we did have 3 suitcases) and were greeted by a less than sympathetic audience despite the fact that the wedding party took up the whole space leading up to reception. They had closed the restaurant early as they had this party to cater for thos large group so not even room service was available. No worries we found an eatery close by. Upon returning to our room to unpack there were only 4 hangers in the closet, when we asked for more the receptionist couldn't understand why we could possibly have reason to quibble. Maybe it was because they hardly spoke any English, yes i know, English speakers abroad and all that but i had called them in advance of booking as i speak no turkish and was assured it wouldnt be a problem. We were booked into room 26, supposedly a "deluxe room" overlooking the Bosphorus which indeed it did, however it was directly overlooked by rooms on both sides. If you sat at the table overlooking the bosphorus you could clearly see the people in the room adjacent and obviously vice versa. This might tickle some people's fancy but not not a "must see" for me.
I had expected something special, but was very disappointed, an average hotel, average room, average service. Won't recommend or return

Everything about this hotel was spectacular! The unique rooms furnished in antiques, the reading room overlooking the water with the windows open to the breeze, the wonderful people who were so helpful with sight-seeing plans - it is now on my "must stay" list when in Istanbul!

Room Tip: No such thing as a bad room here.

I spent there one night for a wedding reception and dinner. It is an awesome location with wonderful view on the Bosphorus. The staff was kind and available, the service was average. The dinner service and food was average, neither good nor bad, but it was not something special or memorable, and this is the only negative aspect of this experience.

We had our wedding/ reception in Bosphorus Palace Hotel couple months ago. As you can imagine, wedding planning is very stressful, and believe me it gets more stressful when you plan it from overseas! However the Bosphorus Palace management and their staff were very professional and helpful from the beginning of the planning to the end of the event. It was clear that they were not after the money of their customers BUT their satisfaction!
Me and my family stayed there 2 night.They made us feel like we are at home! We will definitely stay there again!

I am Turkish and I live in US, I can truly say you will get great Customer Service there! and I am an architect, I do not need to say how wonderful waking up in this historical Boutique Hotel facing the Bosphorus… It takes you away from the current cosmopolitan Istanbul and puts you a place way back in time…You definitely experience the timeless Istanbul…

A beautiful hotel with a great view. we got a good price because of a group rate. also had decent A/C but it was right on the water so not always needed. on the plus side, it's far away from touristy stuff so no one is hassling you in the street. on the negative side, it's far away from the touristy stuff so expect loooong taxi rides to travel between "europe" and "asia" or take a short taxi ride to the ferries.

Room Tip: Get the seaside rooms. an excellent view and the front facing rooms have to deal with the noise from...

We were at Bosporus palace for three days, two night in the standard sea view and one night in the deluxe room. Both rooms are recommendable, but the deluxe room with perfect view of the bogazici bridge is something special. You can lay on your comfortable bed and have a wonderful panoramic view.
You can open the window and you get a fresh sea air breeze. No Istanbul noise, only some tour boats are crossing in front of your room.

Service is ok, nothing very special, but there is also no problem.
We have wished that the breakfast were a bit more Bosphorus palace like. It was more like a breakfast in an standard hotel. But there was no problem with the quality.

All in all we can absolutely recommend this wonderful hotel in the small and romantic village Beylerbeyi/Istanbul.
