Fabulous Location | Comfortable Rooms | Highly Recommended —— Detailed Review Below —— An upscale hotel within the Ritz Carlton family of hotels that delivers class, style, glamour and comfort — all right in the heart of Istanbul. I have stayed at this hotel a few times over the years - largely traveling in for meetings. The hotel is centrally located - close enough to Taksim Square and most of the attractions and sites that bring people to the city. The rooms are comfortable, well decorated, and quite decently sized. The service is immaculate. The staff go out of their way to make the trip comfortable and enjoyable. Verdict: Highly Recommended. Rooms: 5/5 Location: 5/5 Facilities: 5/5 Dining and Room Service: 5/5 Service/Staff: 5/5

We visited this hotel to use the restaurants and the spa service, I was blown away with the facilities it offered. The spa had swimming pool, Turkish Hammam, sauna and steam room. Refreshment was available at every corner. Every locker they provided had clean spare towels and robes with slippers, sanitary were spotless. I loved spending time in the spa area the staff members were incredibly polite and helpful. The restaurant had implacable view, the food texture and taste was incredible. Unfortunately we didn’t get to try their rooms but I am sure it would be immaculate. I would highly recommend this place and I will go again.
