“Very good place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014

I was here in December 2013 for a business meeting, only one night. Although I couldn't go through all the services, everything was quite good. The location is quite business oriented, but I guess the position on the bosphorus (the restaurant terrace is almost on the water) would make also a private w.e. in Instanbul good and relaxing. Staff is very smart and professional.
Rooms are very comfortable and clean, no noises at all although there is a night club nearby.
A special mention for the breakfast, with a large offer and further warm dishes directly cooked by the chefs.
Prices are fully alligned with the european hotels and radisson standards.

I stayed at the Radisson Blu Bosphorous on a business trip. The review will be strictly on the hotel itself since my timing was tight, I can't really comment on the area - I didn't really leave the hotel except travel to and from the airport. Here are the basics: Room was well-appointed and comfortable. I was facing the street, not the water, so there was some noise as Istanbul traffic is….well, Istanbul traffic. But it wasn't awful. t ate 3 meals a day for 2 days at the hotel. Breakfast and lunch were good, both buffet style and both had many choices and good service. Room service was fast but the food was standard fare. The service was good at the hotel - at times there seemed to be a little language barrier with some of the staff but I had no issues. The bar area/terrace is really great - spacious and great views right on the water. Bottom line: I would go back.

Stayed here couple of nights and it was flawless. The hotel offers astounding views of the Bosphorus bridge and has a very lovely waterside terrace. The hotel in general was very quite & comfortable and rooms were clean and well-equipped. Breakfast buffet was lavish & tasty:) Neighborhood is excellent: touristic yet not very crowded. Nightlife is there but the area was still calm and suitable for evening walks. Very good restaurants are nearby and they offer equally beautiful views.

Would VERY HIGHLY recommend as an Affordable, Pleasnt Bosphorus Hotel and yes, would come back to it.

Room Tip: Obviously a Bosphorus one, but you will be charged for it. Some standard rooms offer very limited vi...

We stayed 5 days over Christmas 2013, we found the location to be very good, just far enough from the hustle and bustle of down town but only a 20 Lira taxi ride from the tourist attractions. Outside, within easy walking distance, are many pleasant waterside restaurants and shops, and the hotel was welcoming, smart and the breakfast was first class. Great views of the Bosphorous Bridge also. We enjoyed our stay, thank you to the freindly staff.

Room Tip: Always nice to have a waterside view.

We stay here for 2 nights in October after our cruise. This was a wonderful hotels. Since we are a gold member, so staff upgrade up to a suite with breakfast when we check in. The room was so spacious. The hotel was beautiful. The breakfast was very delicious. You have so many choices on the breakfast buffet, All the fancy coffee also included with breakfast (cappuccino, latte etc).

I also would like to give a compliment on the staffs at the hotel. They were so friendly and pay attention to the hotel. One night while I was sitting in the bar area to use the internet because the internet in our room was so slow. I was sick, so I keep coughing. The bartender at the bar bought me a glass of water. I was so impress with his service. That what's call good customer service.

I also love the location. There are so many restaurants around with so many choices. My favorite was Durmunce which sell Turkish food. They have a very good kabob, inexpensive and very very good. It only couple shop down from the hotel.

The spa area was nice. Too bad we did not get a chance to use it.

The only complaint I had was the internet. They had some problem with internet during our stay, so it was very very slow. We stay there for 2 nights and during our stay we can't get internet to work in our room.

The best way to get to this hotel from Atatürk Airport is to use Havataş Airport Shuttle Service and then take taxi. The shuttle bus will drop you off at Point Hotel, just past Taksim Square. The ride costs 10 TL per person (around $5.00) Taxi from here to hotel will cost around $5.00-$6.00. I think it is around 2 miles. Please check with taxi first to get the estimate cost of the taxi even though he said he will use meter. Our taxi drove us around and it cost us around $30.00 from shuttle drop off. Lesson learned. I don't want other people get taking advantage of by the taxi.

Nothing to add, everything was great. However, the quality and speed of wifi in the rooms could be much improved.
The breakfast is superb; dinner at the restaurant is lovely with view on Bosphorus.
The concierge is very nice and helpful.
Globally, the service is very good.
Do not forget that you are in a Muslim country and that the first pray is very early in the morning.

Room Tip: Rooms with view on the Bosphorus are worth it
