We ended a very short and hectic trip to Istanbul with a two night stay at the Radisson Blu Bospherus. It was the perfect place to relax. The views of the Bospherus Straight were breath-taking. It was even warm enough when we arrived to enjoy a cocktail on the deck. We were up-graded to a junior corner suite, so had both plenty of room and fabulous views. The staff were excellent. Very helpful and they coped with a middle of the night departure on he same day the clocks went forward, arranging the wake up call and transportation to the airport without a hitch.
Breakfast was well prepared, fresh and comprised a huge selection of different foods. The food in the cruise lounge was equally good and provided a pleasant informal place to relax. I had read reviews that complained of the noise from the attached nightclub Zuma; we had no such complaints. We were aware of the music when we were awake, but it certainly did not prevent us from going to sleep, or wake us up in the night.
The hotel staff booked a Bospherus cruise for us. Muge, the concierge, got us reservations at Zuma (I was curious about a "Japanese" restaurant in Istanbul). I would love to return and think we would be quite comfortable staying here as a base and using the water taxis for transportation to do our sight seeing.
