The Grand Tarabya

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Came to Istanbul for business and decided to extend my stay, was at another hotel which I did not like so I checked out and stayed at the Grand Trabya Hotel. Right on the Bosphorus in a marina area. My room over looked the Bosphorus with a very nice view. The staff were very kind and helpful. Breakfast is service overlooking the marina with a very nice buffet. The health club and spa are excellent. There are many restaurants near by, and there is a walk-way along the Bosphorus. Trabya area is far from the tourist attractions and you'll need transportation and takes about 40-60 minute to get to old city.

excellent, friendly and attentive staff. quiet hotel. great food...alacarte inclusive. different restaurants within the building. hotel facing the sea. places for sightseeing within walking distance..

I have been here once a year over the last 3 years and continue to love this hotel for many reasons. Effortless luxury is what they afford you. Well situated with great views of the #bosphorous. Polite and efficient staff... you never feel the language barrier! Hospitality defined! Good facilities for business meetings but can easily offer a family comfort feeling to. The rooms are clean, spacious and just love the bathrooms! You can sit in the bathtub and enjoy views through your Window. This hotel takes nothing for granted. It embodies the hard working sincere culture that I associate with Turkish people. The food is always tasty and great. Close to shopping malls and you can take a walk in the vicinity with nothing to worry about. There is a Turkish Hamam that I enjoy during each visit. This is probably my favourite hotel and would recommend it any day!

stylish, clean and at a perfect location for calm area on the Bosporus. food is very good, the room is big , clean and the SPA is unforgettable. i do recommend to ask ahead for Bosporus view and ask coffee set to bring to the room

I came to this beautiful hotel many times I would say it's one of the best hotel in istanbul location fantastic very professional staff and it's good place that your with the family specially for shopping it's just 5 minutes far from istinye park very good restaurants near the hotel and I will come again .

I really can't give enough praise to the staff and therefore management of this outstanding hotel. HOTEL: They upgraded us before we arrived, and had wine and fruit waiting. The rates are reduced owing to global conflict, and I'm happy to take advantage of it while I can, I'm certain the prices will rise again eventually. But for now, my suite was 135 Turkish Lyra--Not dollars!! (I'll let you math wizards figure out just what a steal this was) STAFF: The only way to review this staff is to refer to them as the family you have no blood ties with. Their service is a cut above Anything else I've experienced. Don't speak Turkish? Not a problem, they have multilingual staff in every department. I could tell you how the concierge and front desk were manned by the most capable of people, Teresa at front desk and Şhahan and Especially Ömar of the concierge. These individuals are hotel assets who are well suited for customer service. They arranged a driver to meet us at, and return us to, the airport. Ömar created and arranged the most accommodating tour(s) to match our hectic schedule(s). And then created modified packages, so that we could see the sights that we were interested in visiting. I could tell you about the stunning Spa and how Gulsah and Eugena arranged my first Turkish bath making me feel like a brand new woman. Or how they talked me out of spending money on a service that I didn't need, but thought I might. In other words these people are not focused on the dimes, only the details. LOCATION:...could not be better. The hotel is located on the Bosporus sea, and its balconies overlook pods of dolphins, and a beautiful marina. There are also rolling hills, lush greenery and trees galore and of course great shopping--this location really does have it all. And I have yet to mention the historical sights; Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace and the Blue Mosque to name a few. Trust me, and come see for yourself what I'm talking about.😎 "teşekkür ederim" or a thousand thank you's for an amazing vacation ❤️HJR

Even tho its a Five Star Hotel a totaly Strange man had the Chance to say My Name At the Front Desk and to get my " KEY ROOM" !!! He tried to rape me! When i left the Hotel i forgot all my rings , my cap, my earrings, Till TODAY they are no where to found! I still Waiting For my Watch but when i call the Hotel Nobody can Even Tell me when it was sendet and Not Even the trackingsnumber. Bad Bad Service. Take care of your Jewerly While you staying there.

I stayed 2 nights with my wife and 4 years old daughter. The weather was windy and cool in Istanbul, so we spent majority of time in the hotel. Staff was really kind, well educated, smiley and helpful. Our room was prepared when we arrived the hotel. Some small surprises for my daughter (chocolate, dragee etc.) was available. Food was delicious and customer profile was quite good. R.E.A.D. cafe and The Brasserrie restaurant offer comfortable place to eat and enjoy. Room service was as it should be. I strongly recommend this hotel to everyone, The Grand Tarabya will be my unique choice to stay in Istanbul.

This is absolutely a wonderful hotel with amazing service and great location in quite Tarabya small town. It's located directly at the phosphorus and if you are lucky the hotel manager will upgrade you to phosphorus room. You all enjoy the quite town and the locals fishing every morning. It's about 20 km from the Istanbul center (25-30 min), you can take a taxi which is not too expensive.

Full window of Bosphorus, in the middle of continental border, europe and asia. The panoramic view of two of the three brigdes of the Bosphorus, really amazing. Everybody must see and live this perfect hotel with luxury rooms with full Bosphorus window and delicious kitchen. Staff are so gentle like luxury hotels of London. And you can walk in the morning with dolphins like us, if you are lucky🐬🐬🐬🐬🐬🐬🐬
