Stayed at the hotel for a 50th birthday celebration for 3 nights. It is a little out of the main city but so much better for that. Take a tram to the end of the line and walk! Perfect location to go back to at the end of a busy day admiring all Instanbul has to offer. A little oasis of calm in the bustling city. Starboard Restaurant was not only great for buffet breakfast but also for a romantic dinner. Food was delightful with attentive, friendly staff. Reception staff especially Tanner) were wonderful, could not have been more helpful or friendly even when we asked for info, taxis, restaurants bookings in the city, water taxis etc. ( we are quite demanding guests I think!) Room was wonderful with the most comfortable hotel bed I have slept in for a while. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and thanks to all at the hotel who made my stay such a pleasure.

A very well appointed hotel in a beautiful position on the Bosphorous. Very courteous, friendly staff. Rooms are very well appointed. Food of good/very good quality. The only 2 areas of improvement are: the wifi coverage is not always perfect in the rooms & some staff - not those at reception - speak very little English.

The hotel is nice and like many other Radisson hotel I have seen. The breakfast is really good, the waiters are helpful, fast and friendly. The bed is neither too soft nor too hard, the room service is working fine. The only issue I had which was not solved during my stay: the internet kept kicking me out and I was not able to work while sitting in the room. Although I asked the reception they were not able to solve the problem

A lovely hotel.
Very good location,close to the best places around Bosphorus. Close to all night life.
They gave us early checkin since we arrived at 6am, instead of making us wait until 14:00. We did inform them earlier though.
Good bar and food. Excellent Hospitality.
Excellent views. Good usual breakfast options.
Was our wedding anniversary and the hotel provided us with a little surprise in the room - a cake and chocolates.
The staff are very polite and caring.
The concierge services were excellent. They gave us extremely useful information in planning our day trips to local areas and attractions.

Next Time we're in Istanbul, we will be staying there again.

Room Tip: Look for 4th floor and above and facing the Bosphorus bridge.

I'm very satisfied with my stay at Radisson Blu in Ortakoy. After arriving at 4am off of a long flight from Taiwan, I was able to get an early check in and get some much needed rest before a full day of exploring Istanbul. The hotel also generously upgraded me to a business class room with a view of the Bosphorus, which was excellent.
