Editorial review:

This lavish spot is located in the Dolmabahce neighborhood and overlooks the Bosphorus. The rooms are amazing and have gorgeous views. The spa has a Turkish bath, there's a Mediterranean-Ottoman restaurant, and the staff is incredible and bends over backwards for guests. However, some criticized the building's appearance among all the mosques. But the amazing service more than makes up for it.

Verified Reviews:

  • Massive rooms - Best views in istanbul - Pool and spa were delightful - Price is high
  • Internet expensive - Loved the club benefits - Spa is great - Amazing breakfast
  • Close to the taksim square - Rooms had an amazing view - Loved the bathroom
  • Beautiful hotel - Service is incredible - Worth every penny - Noise problems

                        • Excellent fitness center and simply awesome hotel. Room clean lobby spicially salep, the good service and great concierge. Two big screen tvs, many thanks for exellent breakfast and wonderful Turkish yoghurt. Nice spa.

                          Old fashioned elegance in a poor location, because the staff were not kind.

                        • The view of the bosphorous from the breakfast room was superb and Istanbul was perfect. Staff were polite and helpful, the complimentary water was a nice touch and the turndown included chocolates, the variety of food served was awesome. The spa was beautiful.

                          Location is not the best for tourism and the lobby is for a three star hotel and the general ambiance is dim and old.

The service is incredible, rooms are clean and the buffet has a wonderful mix of traditional Turkish. Fourthly, the pool is beautiful the gym is good.

                          No bright bedside lamp for reading, beverages relatively expensive.

                        • The view is excellent and the hotel is clean as expected from a ritz carlton. Good staff work there and internet should be available for free at rooms as the room rates are really high. Thirdly, the breakfast is wonderful and the spa is quiet.

                          Location not great not enough open spaces.

                        • Just below windows there's some parking for buses, nice view and one of the best hotels very clean. Beautiful Turkish style details, great service and the staff were friendly and the room furniture was excellent. The breakfast buffet was wonderful, individual chef's craftsmanship was well to the to the fore and pool and sauna facilities was complimentary and extraordinary good.

                          A bit far from the old city, the lighting in the bedroom was very poor and the pillows was very bad. Unfortunately the towels were ice cold and alcohol was extremely expensive.

                        • The cabs are plentiful and relatively cheap, the rooms are big and have an amazing view. The hotel is clean, decoration is very elegant and secondly, the service is impeccable and genuinely friendly. The breakfast buffet is good, the Spa is excellent.

                          Too far away from the center, the style is conventional, somewhat old fashioned and food and drinks are very expensive.

                        • Location was perfect for me and hotel staff were very helpful. The service was absolutely fantastic and the Manager Deniz was amazing. The room was big and breakfast was nice.

                          Shower area is very slippery, taxis are plentiful and not expensive, the building as seen from outside is rather ugly. The free internet in the lobby is very slow, a warm towel would have been preferred and the gym is relatively small and sometimes crowded.

The staff throughout were warm, our bathroom was marble and large, the waiters at breakfast time in particular were genuinely friendly.

                          The third bed made available by the hotel was for a child.
