Richmond Istanbul

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We spent a good time there. The hotel is very clean and the stuff are friendly especially the reception. We visited Istanbul for shopping so the location was excellent (Istiklal cd) where you can find everything (all Brands). For the transportation the positive is that the metro station is 2 min away, but for the taxi it was impossible to get there because of the reconstruction work in the street. We suggest more various food in the breakfast only and everything else was great!

I stayed in this hotel last April and it was an amazing experience from check- in till the departure, friendly and helpful front office, clean room and great location. i am looking forward to my next trip to Istanbul in February to stay at this hotel.

Amazing hotel and location Clean Good manager Good employees Good breakfast At the end of istiklal street We enjoyed a lot And we will Come back definitely As soon as possible I recommend it Two thumbs up

mention I stayed at the Richmond hotel of October 9, the hotel's location is very practical, being in the heart of Istiklal street, close to a metro station. The street has ongoing construction work which makes the street very crowded and unpleasant for shopping but it was ok for me. The rooms at the Richmond are nice but they have a big issue in cleanliness, I mean when they clean the room, the just arrange the bed and do very minor cleaning, the desk chair was dirty when I arrived and stayed that way till I left. There was so much dust in the room and everytime they clean they didn't bother to dust the room. There is an ongoing water leaking from the toilet seat which is annoying at night when you are trying to sleep. The breakfast buffet has little choices and the staff at the breakfast is not welcoming nor professional, that when the time of breakfast is finished, they start making tremendous noise taking away all the cutlery and they literally ask you to leave!!! get there at rush time without finding a chair to sit. Also, the cleanliness needs to be taken into consideration. The reception staff was helpful and nice. They need to add a channel for just music on the room TV and they really need to train their housekeepers...

Had a nice vacation and nice stay in Richmond hotel , staff was amazing and helpful ( Ramazan , Hamdulah , and others ) got a nice tour to Bursa organised by Ramazan will come back again of course Ahmed

We went for a trip to Istanbul as a group of about 30. The hotel was chosen for its proximity to the sites we planned to visit. What we did not know was the current terrible situation of Istiklal Caddesi where Richmond is located. Currently there is some construction work going on and access to the hotel is difficult and very unpleasant. In addition to all that, the fact that the hotel has some 10-12 steps at the entrance one has to overcome plus the fact that the personal lift for people with mobility problems was not functioning, makes it almost impossible for disabled people, even if its a light problem to stay there. Our room was rather small, the wardrobe too tiny. Cleanliness was adequate, and so was the breakfast. However there is no restaurant in the hotel, (but it has 4 stars?)

Excellent hotel in location, hospitality, room keeping, view and rate. Employees of the hotel are very very helpful and so kind specially Mr. Man, Serkan and Jassim and someother employees which i didn't know their names. On another hand, the location of thr hotel is right next to an Embassy in the middle of istiklal street in taqsim which was very safty for us and on the Metro was very close to us too besides all other restaurants like Mado, Starbucks many shops... I extremely recommend you to book with them. I really enjoyed my stay with them and wish to go back again.

Comfortable, well-equipped, in a great location! Spectacular views from rooftop restaurant, very comfortable rooms, friendly and helpful staff -- on Istanbul's famous Istiklal avenue! Truly outstanding. Breakfast buffet sumptuous and varied, with special egg dishes provided on request. Bathrooms recently renovated and very nice. Rooms spacious and clean.

The hotel is located in a good place, Istiklal St., which has easy access to the subway (Shishane station), malls and historical places. The rooms and service quality are not as well as a 4 star hotel but they are acceptable. To be honest you are going to stay in a 3.5 star hotel NOT ANY MORE!! If you are looking for a quiet room with a nice view of the southern Bosphorus canal , I recommend you to book a upper floor room on its east side. Staffs are polite and kind specially Mr. Pelvan who's in charge of reception.

It should be one of the best hotels in Istanbul. The rooms are very big and clean, the breakfast is enjoyable and you can find whatever you want to eat. My room was on the fifth floor and there was a beautiful view from the windows. I hope to come back soon! 5-stars for me.
