“Unique among other hotels, belonging to the same network”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

It was a business trip, thus I can rate it and I would definitely recommend it as a great place to hold conferences. Hotel's decor is nothing special, but the facilities and equipment it provides is modern, well-operating, and hotel's staff is highly professional. Just to give you a picture: we had a conference for 280 people, it had to be translated synchronously in 6 languages, and it went smoothly, with no interruptions, with no microphones going out of order, no projectors disconnecting from laptops or anything like that.
Second great thing about the hotel is that staff is actually very friendly not just "corporate-friendly". Whether it's true or not, but they manage to make you feel like they care about you and add a personal, individual touch to their services.
Third thing is the stunning view from roof top and a swimming pool there.
And the main thing is that it seems like you can do whatever you want in that hotel, without feeling watched, or judged, or criticized.

My wife and I stayed at Ramada Plaza in Pangalti for 9 days. Everyone at the reception was so helpful. The rooms are good size and furnished in a modern style and very clean. The location was perfect for us however it may not suit tourists who are interested in visiting the historical places in the old city only. Being from Istanbul originally myself, we choose this location as it is close to where our friends live and I know the area pretty well. who ever was at the concierge desk was extremely helpful, talking to me in Turkish and trying their best to communicate with my wife in English and assisting in every aspect either to get us a taxi, advising as how to get to places etc. Every time on our return they asked how our day was and if they can be of any help for directions to places etc. The young man Firat was always there to help with the luggage or to assist. Exceptional hospitality thank you all. We plan to visit Istanbul again in the future and Ramada Plaza Hotel will be where we shall stay,

Room Tip: always ask the concierge to get you a taxi. They will give you a card with the number plate of the t...

It's a good and nice hotel to stay. I do reccomend. The standard rooms are quite small but effective, clean and with all the needs for a business traveler.
The breakfast is rich and of high quality for the service and food served. The only problem is the lack of an expresso machine to get some good "standard" expresso coffee instead of the filtered light and horfull coffee. The expresso is charged as extra at huge price (12 TL for a double expresso) which is not acceptable in a Ramada chain hotel.

I was there for a meeting for 3 nights. I must say it is one of the most friendly, clean and well located hotel. Really nice. People are fluent in English as well as other languages and they will go out of your way to help you. One word of advice: a cab ride from the airport to this hotel should be 55-75 Euros. The cabbies who meet you inside the "safe zone" as you get your luggage, will rip you off for as much as they can get away with. Get a normal cab (yellow). The ride is about 40 minutes depending on traffic.

It was my 6th time to visit Istanbul,but 1st at the Ramada Plaza. Me & my sister enjoyed our stay so much. The staff is so friendly , caring & polite. Great location, opposite to the metro as well as the bus station.Nishantishi,is so close to the hotel, which is a great shopping destination to those who look for the brands & the designers' boutiques. You can also walk to Osmanbey in no time.
I would like to thank Mr. Jamal, the gentleman, who works at the reception. He saved my life! when I was food poisoned at midnight & he was helpful enough to let the Hotel Taxi drive me to the closest pharmacy. He was so keen to make sure that everything was going alright. special thanks to the polite, caring taxi driver, who was also so helpful & kind with me. In general, it was a great experience that I am looking forward very soon to have it again. we also enjoyed our time while having breakfast, the staff was so friendly & polite. Thanks to Mr.Firat, who was caring enough to help us in our luggage, that were really heavy!!
waiting to the second visit to enjoy my favorite country Istanbul & to meet the whole Ramada Plaza staff again!

I use to stay at this hotel in Istanbul since 2010 and it is always a pleasure to come back again. Very friendly staff from the bell boy to the concierge. They call you by your name and this gives you a very personal feeling.

Rooms are very big and in a good condition. Food at the restaurant is fine and you can feel comfortable. Metro is across the street and Taksim can easily be reached within 10 minutes.
