Radisson Bosphorus Hotel is well located near many coffee shops, restaurants and attractions.
View from restaurant and bar is great and staff well trained and polite.
Wellness area poor and not matching the rest of the hotel standards. However they have some good therapists.
Happy to recommend the hotel apart of recreational facilities.

Stayed here for a business conference, location is great with easy access to cafe, restaurant and super market, etc.
The meeting room on the terrace is great with seaview, can really enjoy it during breaks, but the hotel room rate euro 200 per night is bit too much for the facilities it offerd.
Lack of staff in the restaurant at early morning breakfast time (6:30 to 7:00), not all tables are set and ready, however during lunch, it is another situation, service is much better.
Staff at check in counter are nice and friendly, as some reviews mentioned, the concreige was not manned at all, difficult to ask for information.
Doubt that will pay this price for a private stay!

Dear Guest,

I would like to thank you for taking time to share your experience about
the hotel.

Please also accept my sincere apologies for your disappointment because
of the concierge service.
I would like to emphasize that; being a small luxury hotel with the best
location in town makes us pricy than the others with high occupancy
levels throughout the year.

I am pleased to inform you that your valuable comments have been
distributed to related departments.
Thank you very much for giving us an opportunity to improve our services
by sharing your opinion.

We would like to see you at our beatiful hotel again.

Sincerely,

Mustafa Gültekin

Hotel Manager

I love this charming city 'Istanbul' and will definitely back soon .. actually it was my first visit to Istanbul and as usual i did ,i preferred to stay in the Radisson Hotel. There were 3 hotel , one was near the airport, one another was in the asian side. I found the hotel, one was in the bosphorus. It takes quite long to getting Hotel from the Airport , there was a huge jam, but city was incredibly big and lively. And at the first saw hotel just fascinated me, i found it near the Bosphorus with a lovely view on the water. It was like a dream. I booked for a business class room. I had a lovely sea view from room. Staff was definitely amazing. During my stay, they were all helpfull , especially front desk were all speaking very good english and was very smiley and friendly. I had my breakfast on the terrace. And in the evening i had this time my dinner in the lovely restaurant sitting in the terrace again. The bosphorus bridge was magnificent , with one word.. during the night i enjoyed, and i realized i felt in love with this city. i would like to say only thank you once again for this great experience.. , i will come back back for sure discover rest of the city at soon . ..

This was my third time in Istanbul, decided to go with my friends on a weekend getaway. We decided to stay at this hotel because of the reasonable rates and the close proximity to the Bosphorus.

First of all, the hotel doesn't. Have a swimming pool, the breakfast buffet is nothing to brag about and if you like being close to noisy night clubs then this is a hotel for you.

I felt like the staff is being forced to be nice to the guests, the rooms are clean but I got the feeling I was in a dorm.

The only advantage I see for staying at this hotel is the close proximity to the Bosphorus.

Would NOT stay at this hotel again.

I visited Istanbul and stayed at the Radisson Blu with my son in July. I switched hotel reservations a week or so before I left the States to the Radisson Blu and let me tell you, it was the best decision I made. We stayed in the Bosphorus Terrace Suite and it was amazing. The views were spectacular, the terrace was so spacious. We had breakfast delivered to the room each morning before heading out for the day. The room service was excellent, the breakfast delicious.

Mustafa and his staff took care of every request we had. I can't say enough about the service at this hotel. The location is perfect, as you are far enough away from the crowds, yet just a short cab ride away from the sites and steps away from the shopping and dining of Ortakoy.Taking in the view of the Bosphorous while sipping "Ottomon Mojito's" from the hotel bar was the perfect ending to a day of sightseeing.

I highly reccommend this hotel if you are visting Istanbul if service, location and views are what you are looking for. Mustafa, thanks again for making our stay at the Radison Blu such a wonderful experience.

Room Tip: The Bosphorus view rooms/suites are worth the extra money.
