The hotel is close to the Taxim Square and the modern, vibrant city center. My room was big enough. It had a direct view of the Bosphorus, which is really fantastic. The room was well equipped and had a coffee maker for an excellent espresso. I used the services of the Carlton Club and they really made me more comfortable. Unfortunately, there was only one restaurant in the hotel and there was nothing extra for the food. The hotel has a very nice spa and an indoor pool. The staff were very friendly and made an excellent impression of the stay at the hotel. I lived in several 5 * hotels near Taxim Square and Ritz Carlton made a better impression on me.

Stayed: September 2018

The Ritz-Carlton Istanbul is conveniently located and a worthy addition to this famous chain of luxury hotels. The service is top notch and the rooms are quiet, spacious and meticulously clean. Don't take the hotel shuttle to and from the airport; book a car in advance for a set price (the local taxis will overcharge you and quote a ludicrous exchange rate if you don't have TLira).
A wonderful place to stay in an incredible city! Come in warm weather to enjoy the view from the pool!

We stayed at the RC for 5 nights in September in order to see and experience Istanbul for the first time. The city is large, highly populated and vibrant so we were after hotel that offered a great location and vantage point, but one that was also comfortable and offered insight and experience on how to get the most from our stay.

In this regard the RC was a perfect choice for us. Our room was modern, high quality and relaxing - super comfortable beds and great bathroom and shower.

Breakfast served overlooking the Bosphorus - stunning. And a location within minutes of the the Dolmabache Palace (amazing - a must see) and also a main tram stop (Kabatas) which takes you into the city in 10 minutes , straight to the 'Blue Mosque' and Hagia Sophia and via the Galata bridge.

The staff at the hotel could not have been better - from Sarvan who drove us to a restaurant after our taxi failed to materialise; the team at the Atelier restaurant in particular Deniz and Ayhan who looked after us every day (great breakfast and great views) Also the female chef (apologies we didn't her name) who made a us a beautiful egg and feta breakfast - a recipe from her grandmother which was a lovely personal touch.

We also really benefited from a first class concierge service - where nothing was too much trouble. Arranging tickets , making calls and bookings, providing good insight on where and when to go. A great service overall but particularly from Serkan Serpen who was top notch in every regard.

All in all we would highly reccomend this hotel and its team and will definitely basing ourselves here for a future visit.

Room Tip: Lower floor room overlooking stadium and nearby concert venue can be a little noisy on game / performance night (until mid/late evening)
