Radisson Blu Bosphorus Hotel, Istanbul

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Our experience with this hotel has been really bad. The staff at Cruise Lounge are unfriendly and they make you feel as if they are forced to work there. What you get is not what you pay for. Overall the service quality is poor and is not up to Radisson quality.

Arrived at 7am in the morning of the 31st March Booking confirmed early check in yet 7 hrs later I am still sitting waiting to get a room Non existent service at this hotel. Book another hotel if you want service, definitely not up to Radisson standard

The rooms and breakfast hall were very average. Poor mini bar and bathroom less than average. The bed sheets had a weird smell and the house keeping staff had the most horrible body odor which was lingering in the room long after it was cleaned. Quality of cleaning service is average and the restaurant/lounge near by plays loud music every night until 3 am which makes it very difficult to sleep. I must say reception staff were very helpful and handled my requests with utmost professionalism. However hotel needs to improve room decoration and hallways and work on having more comfortable, convenient experience for their guests.

I booked because the location was suitable for my business meetings . When I checked in , the room was so small for us as a couple , so I asked for an upgrade and they suggested us a suite for double or triple the price which was inconvenient . Floors were sticky inside the room , and they didn't change the basic sheets for 3 nights ... I couldn't find any triple socket at the hotel and they didn't have an extension or plug .. service was max . 2 stars I will never recommend to anyone , though I have to admit that view was ok & the staff were friendly and polite ...

Stayed here in January,Service is good,parking and checking in is abit of a pain,really small entrance for cars to come in to the area,rooms and bathrooms need a revamp,area is good,never have meals there uso cannot comment

Excellent, attentive and unobtrusive service. All our requests were met and all stress removed from us. Excellent location, delicious breakfast, with everything you could think of (and much else) on the menu.

The hotel location is excellent in Ortakoy where you can enjoy the best view in Bosphour, the hotel is elegant and modern, I booked a superior room with partial view for the Bosphour but I found the room very average In furniture but very clean and quite ( room no 325), the receptionist was very active and I checked in and checked out in less than 5 minutes. The breakfast was good and the variety was excellent to satisfy different and hard tastes and the view from restaurant terrace is super.

The area of the Hotel is one of the best and top tourist area, "Ortakoy" is just under the Bosphorus Bridge, The hotel is very clean with amazing Terrace view, it is just "The best view in Istanbul" Rooms are very clean, I enjoyed the breakfast and the variety of food selection as well the food presentation. The area of the hotel is not easy to reach it due traffic but the hotel experience worth to wait Highly recoomend theis hotel for family, personally I will definitely repeat my stay again and again

It was an ok experience Good points of the hotel: The view- you have a stunning view of the bosphorus Receptionist- check in was so smooth very accomodating staff. Breakfast was perfect. Lots of choices plus the view of the bosphorus on a winter morning was great! Bad point : Room was not sound prolf as you can hear the noise from the streets. Cars honking people shouting, i barely sleep my first night.

Great service and staff very obliging and helpful. Location of hotel is excellent only minutes away from Ortaköy. Views of Bosphorus are breathtaking. Buffet breakfast was delicious so much variety. Will be back!
