Renaissance Istanbul Polat Bosphorus Hotel

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It was a nice, clean hotel. Well located in besiktas area but a bit far from metro station. Breakfast was great with many options. Internet connections were so weak in the rooms but it was ok in the lobby and common areas. I suggest this hotel in overal.

We stay with Marriott all over the world and this particular hotel is truly unique. Its location, rooms, breakfast, lounge, cleanliness, pool and spa are first-rate. However, most importantly I have never seen such motivated, pleasant, energetic, passionately dedicated personnel. From the check-in counter to the breakfast room, you will experience first-rate service. I applaud the manager of this hotel for creating this amazing environment for the guests to enjoy, I have received impeccable service from every single person, but I can only remember the names of Ozdemir (spa), Volkan, Samet, Eren, Sener, Hasan, Nazan (breakfast), and last but not least Mert Bey. Stay at this hotel and experience the amazing service quality yourself!

We stayed in the Renaissance this past week. The service is great. The hotel is s little far from the old city. It requires that you will need to taxis which are quite daunting at times. We explored te city and had great fun. The breakfast was world class the amenities where world class. I would highly recommend this hotel for international tourists.

The house keeping are not clean and not speaking english and though you put the don't disturb sign they still enter your room , the staff were very rude while I have been eating my breakfast the closing time for breakfast was at 10:30am and they asked me to leave in a rude way at 10:15 am because they have event for lunch at 1:pm and I thought that was for one day only but the next day I faced the same thing. I will never go back to this hotel

Overnight stay in Istanbul was provided by Turkish airlines and I was not expecting much. What a very pleasant surprise to be taken to the Renaissance Hotel Beautiful hotel; professional and caring staff and breakfast buffet was expansive. Next trip to Turkey, will be here...and there will be one.

One of the best experiences we had at a hotel. We loved everything about it. Hotel is the Besiktas area, not too far from anything, depending on traffic. Download the Istanbul traffic app, its externally helpful. The staff were great, I know I'm misspelling but Vail, Samet, and the blond guy the was in the lounge for a few day, sorry, I forgot his name. They were absolutely amazing. Noting short of perfect. My gold membership was put to great use at this hotel, I felt the care. Bathrooms were modern and contemporary. The housekeeping staff were great. Breakfast was good, but you will get bored of the same items after 5 days, I wish they would change it a bit, but never the less, it was very good. We went out for breakfast a couple times to change the routine. The hotel is located on a hill, even though its only 16 floors, you would feel its more like 60. There is a newer Marriott in the same area, but does not have the same great views as this one. I defiantly recommend this place and will be back here again in a heart beat.

The Renaissance Hotel from the Marriott Chain of Hotels & Resorts in Istanbul offers a unique view on the Bosphorus and its magnificent bridge. The room are great, I must say impeccable. The Hotel is well located to go around all Istanbul. The sky lounge is great on the last floor. All together great value for money.

Renaissance is the hotel that I visit regularly. Staff, view from the club lounge, spa center, foods, all facilities are the best in Marriott Hotels in Istanbul. Location is in city center. It is easy to go anywhere by grabing taxi. Thanks for the excellent service.

The hotel is beautiful, modern, clean and offers lovely views. The staff are very friendly and speak English. The hotel location is quite central I felt. For the purpose of visiting the old town you can probably find closer accommodation. My work office was located in Besiktas and this was the reason I chose the hotel. I think it is definitely value for money.

We are members of the fitness center so no idea about the rooms. Pool is clean and good. It has glass ceiling which makes the atmosphere like outdoor pool. Sometimes there are annoying children but generally calm. Cardio and body building part have many devices. Totally satisfying.
