“Modern convenient hotel.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012

This was a good modern hotel .we were in the regular rooms which were well equipped and comfortable. Bathrooms were very modern too,which was good. Enjoyed the breakfast! Very helpful staff in the restaurant . The view of the Bosphorus from the breakfast area was a good start to the day. Location convenient, not too far from the Dolmabaghche Palace. I would recommend this hotel to business travellers as well as tourists.

Everything you'd expect from a Radisson Blu, with a super-comfortable large bed, immaculate housekeeping, well-stocked minibar and good quality toiletries. Thoughtfully designed storage and lighting make these rooms a practical choice, whether you are a single business traveller or a couple staying a week and wanting some elbow room. My bright and airy bedroom had fantastic views of the Bosphorus Bridge; one of my colleagues enjoyed a view across the water to the Blue Mosque and Sultanahmet; just don't get fobbed off with a street-facing room. The location is great for access to business districts and airport as well as nightlife and stunning restaurants. Free wi-fi, decent breakfast buffet, polite and charming staff.

This hotel is located by the Bosphorus, providing a very beautiful view from some rooms and from the restaurants. The staff is very friendly and helps you a lot. Breakfast is good and the bar is very nice place to share time with friends or co workers.

Rooms are very comfortable, well equipped, good amenities and good sleep quality

If you want to visit the Blue Mosque or Agia Sophia Area, make sure you first get information on how to use the trams. It is easy to take a taxi from the hotel and get there (traffic is very heavy), but coming back to the hotel, taxi drivers don´t want to take you because of the traffic and if they take you, they charge a lot for the trip (more than double than the way in). There is a tram that crosses the bridge and takes you to the other side of the channel. From there it is easier to get a Taxi to the hotel, and way less expensive

There is a very good Japanese restaurant just in front the main entrance. Don't miss it!!

Room Tip: Room with view to the Bosphorus! Amazing to pamper the senses

The location in Ortakoy is ideal for those looking for fun in neighbourhood since it is situated near main night life places in Istanbul.
Hotel is clean, rooms are not so spacious as expected, but it is pretty much the same in all hotels from this chain. Hotel has wonderful view to Bosporus and the atmosphere is great.
The service is great. They arrange us all the reservations in main restaurants and also a guide tour around the city that I warmly recommend. This is the most efficient way to see the city.

Modern hotel, Scandinavian style and a bit on the small side but clean and modern rooms, with free wifi. Good pricing and right next to the much more expensive Four Seasons. Restaurant and bar have stunning views across the Bosphorous and the most fabulous breakfast right on the seaside. Great location with many cages nearby and lovely walks by the shops and seaside. Friendly staff and an overall great hotel!

The location of this hotel, right on the Bosphorus in Ortaköy, is its trump card. The terrace and more expensive rooms have a fabulous view across to Asia, only marred (or made, if that is your taste) by the proximity of the modern bridge. Ortaköy is actually quite a charming little suburb, with good shops and cafés. The hotel is as comfortable and well-appointed as the prices would lead you to expect. No complaints at all on that front. Stylish rooms, professional welcome, etc. Ideal for a short stay if you want to be in this area (as I did), and if you can put up with the hotel being inside a sort of public car park (of which many rooms have a privileged view). But what spoiled my otherwise excellent stay was the noise. It is right next to a mosque, and to a little street of cafés whose patrons seem to be surprisingly vociferous at busy times. Even with the windows closed I found it impossible to shut out the noise. And finally, as others have remarked, this is not a good base from which to explore the central parts of Istanbul. The traffic jams, particularly in the vicinity of the Besiktas stadium, are notorious, and what ought to be a ten-minute journey in a bus or taxi could end up taking an hour or more.

This was my first stay at a Radisson Blu. It is their attempt at a W style hotel design. It was nicely done with a clean and contemporary feel. I liked the free wifi. The breakfast spread had the largest selections of food and Turkish delights that I have ever seen. Very impressive.

It's best attribute is the location. It's right on the Bosporus Straight with awesome views of the water and the Asian side of Istanbul. Plus it's in a neighborhood with several restaurants and night clubs right next door. The best sushi spot in the city is Zuma, which is in the hotel.

The first room we got was in Tower B facing the Bosporus Straight. While the view was great, we learned that the nightclub below our room plays very loud music until the very early hours of the morning. We requested a room change and received one in Tower A which gave us a view of the water and protection from the nightclub music.
