Renaissance Istanbul Polat Bosphorus Hotel

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.

I've stayed here a few times and I type as I'm sat in the open air, over looking the Bosphorus enjoying a beer in the roof top bar. Rooms are good and staff are great. Good location but the highlight is sitting outside watching the Turkish world go by on 2 continents!

Enjoyed my few nights here. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good considering many chain hotels in Istanbul can't match local Turkish breakfast. All in all the hotel was a good place for a few days since I had business nearby.

SUPER FAST check in.. which is great.. helpful staff, explaining hotel features... stunning roof top bar. Rooms are delightful modern with super comfy bed.. excellent shower and wifi.. not in the old town of istanbul

It is an average hotel for business trips.The hotel is located in Besiktas,where nothing to see except Bosphorus,but the metro station is close.If you are coming to see the Old City of Istanbul,this is not place to stay at all.Don't waist your time and money on traffic and public transport,just get a hotel in the Old City and enjoy streets and views without a rush. And it is not kids friendly place at all.We got non-smoking room,but smelled smoke allover the place from behind the door.Nobody wanted to change our room on arrival,since we came at night. We liked the breakfast though,it was good enough to enjoy food and time. Sitting the breakfast down in the restaurant,we realised there were couple of families who chose this hotel wrongly as we did,most of people seemed came for business.

Best hotel and outstanding staff if I could give them more than 5 star I would. Great service very polite and attending staff, extremely clean best breakfast. I left my wallet in the taxi the security staff immediately got on the camera found the taxi service and asked the driver to bring the wallet back and he did. They were so kind and concerned, when they my wallet was found they were all so very happy. Thank you to all of you wonderful staff.

You feels like staying at home , you can sleep very well with nano pillows , nice and gentle staffs , small room but try sea view coz you can see Bosporus bridge and beautiful night view , we've stayed 3 excellent nights :)
