What a beautiful hotel! The employees who work here are so attentive and welcoming. The restaurant is great, the rooms are clean and it’s in an outstanding location. I’ve traveled to four continents and countless countries and this is one of the best properties I’ve stayed at, book if you’re in Istanbul.

As a globally recognized authority in wellness, my experience at the Romance Hotel Istanbul and Yasmak Hotel Collection Group, particularly at the Olive Bar, was nothing short of exceptional. Here's a detailed review that encapsulates my experience: --- A Sanctuary of Wellness and Luxury - My Unforgettable Stay at Romance Hotel Istanbul and Yasmak Hotel Collection From the moment I set foot in the Romance Hotel Istanbul, part of the illustrious Yasmak Hotel Collection, I knew I was in for a treat. As someone deeply entrenched in the wellness industry, I was particularly eager to explore their wellness offerings, and I must say, they exceeded my expectations. Wellness Room: The wellness room was a serene haven, perfectly marrying luxury and tranquility. Every detail was meticulously crafted to promote relaxation and rejuvenation, making it an ideal retreat after a busy day exploring Istanbul. Turkish Hamam Bath: An experience not to be missed! The Hamam bath, a quintessential part of Turkish culture, was an invigorating experience. The traditional methods used here are a testament to the authenticity of the service. It's a perfect blend of historical tradition and modern comfort. Sauna and Steam Room: These facilities were impeccably maintained, providing a private and soothing environment. The attention to detail in maintaining the temperature and ambiance was remarkable, ensuring a thoroughly relaxing experience. Swimming Pool: The pool area was a tranquil oasis. It's not just a place to swim but a space to unwind and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. The water was pristine, and the area was maintained with utmost care. Customer Service: The staff's dedication to ensuring a memorable stay was evident in every interaction. Their warm hospitality and attentiveness to my needs as a guest were exceptional. They were knowledgeable, courteous, and always available to assist, making my stay comfortable and hassle-free. Break and Dining: The Olive Bar was a culinary delight. The meals were not only delicious but also thoughtfully prepared, considering health and wellness. The ambiance of the bar added to the overall dining experience, making it a perfect spot for a relaxing evening. Terrace View: One of the highlights of my stay was the breathtaking terrace view of Sultan Ahmet Mosque and Hagia Sophia, as well as the Bosphorus. It's a rare treat to witness such iconic landmarks from such a vantage point. Tips for Future Guests 1. Don't miss the Turkish Hamam bath for an authentic wellness experience. 2. Spend an evening at the Olive Bar for some exquisite dining. 3. Allocate time to relax by the pool, it's a rejuvenating experience. 4. Ask for a room with a view of the Bosphorus for a truly mesmerizing experience. 5. inform them in advance as taxi won’t take you to door but they will help you to pick you up from nearby hotel.
