Renaissance Polat Istanbul Hotel

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Currently remodeling, too much noise, limited activities & facilities

The Renaissance Polat is very nice and the staff was enormously helpful. A great deal of luxury for a very modest price. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

HOTEL WAS NICE THE ROOMS WERE OK THE STAFF WERE NOT VERY HELPFUL . THE INTERNET WAS A SCAM . OVERALL SO / SO

We stayed here during an overnight layover prior to our flight back to the USA. Shuttle from airport was convenient, Hotel had great security and great breakfast. Location on the water was nice for strolling along the waterfront in the morning prior to departure. Would definitely stay here again.

Close to the airport Very comfy beds Great amenities

Shuttle times not good for late flight but it is About 5 mins taxi ride from IST airport (about 10 euros ea way). The beds are one of the best if you want to get re-energized for the next trip. The location by the sea side is relaxing too. Highly recommended.

Convenient location, nice view, comfortable and clean room and helpful staff. And free shuttle between the airport and the hotel.

I would recomment this hotel to my friends. It was great!

Clean, loved the pool. Service is excellent. The hotel offers mini bus to the city and airport

As a regular client golden member , you dont get or feel any appreciation even from the top management level when you ask for a late checkout.

Hotel is 35 minute train ride into city (station is 5 minute walk). Cost $1.50 each way. Nice hotel although staff speaks very little English (worst ever had at international Marriotts). Despite being upgraded to club room floor our room was very small and no frills. Staff continued to cut off a/c when we were gone even after a call to front desk asking for them to leave it alone. Disappointed that the corner suite next to us was empty during our entire visit and they refused to upgrade us to a jr suite. 290 nights at Marriott last year = small club room for me.

Convenient to airport, has free shuttle, all modern amenities, full fitness center.

The location of this hotel is just 15 minutes away from the airport. Shuttle busses take you to and from the hotel to the airport every hour during the day and also to two different locations in the city with pick up in the afternoon for free. It has views of the Marmara see, the main building is smoke free and the outsdoor pool side room are for smokers. It offers indoor/outdoor pool, gym and all types of massages. The breakfast is excellent, with views of the sea. It is quite, you can get a good restful sleep

I had to stay here for an overnight flight layover, and looked at all the different options extensively. It was the only one with free airport shuttle and free wifi; the amenities were perfect, the room was excellent, and the waterview just made it the perfect ending to my trip. If I were staying there longer, might not choose this hotel just because it's not downtown within walking distance to the sites, but otherwise, would recommend it without hesitation.

The location of the hotel is great and is quiet. The hotel shuttle to downrown is really usefull and makes the hotel location as ideal. The room service was superb, quick and orderly. The hotel cleanliness is evident togehter with the facilites it has makes it a real five starrs hotel.

I STAYED BEFORE AT SWISSHOTEL HAD GREAT EXPERIANCE. THOUGH THIS HOTEL WAS THE WORST FAVE STAR I EVER BEEN. SMALL HALL WAYS WITH BAD CARPET SMELL AND POOR VENTILATION. I STAYED AT CLUB ROOM LEVEL. ELEVETORS ARE VERY SLOW. VERY POOR SELECTION OF FOOD AT CLUB ROOM AND BREAKFEST IS STRICTLY IS OVER BY 10-00AM. AFTER THIS NO CHOICE. CLUB ROOM HAVE STRICT ACCONTING POLICY AND THEY MADE YOU SIGN FOR EVERY DRINK YOU HAVE. WE TRIED HOTEL DINING WITH BAD LUCK. THING ADVERTIZED AS STAKE DID NOT APPEAR TO BE ONE. BAR WAS NICE THOUGH DRINKS WHERE POOR MIX. WE TRIED TO USE SPA THOUGH IT APPEARS HOTEL HAS LARGE NUMBER OF MEMBERSHIP CLIENTS AND AREA WAS OVERCRAWDED. THE CLEANESS WAS ANOTHER ISSUE AND THE SPA AREA.

Only hotel that did not offer 15% end-of-summer discount - not sure why. Nothing special hotel. Was farther from Airport then I was expecting, especially because free shuttle did not start until 6:30 am - doesn't help our 6:20 flight.
