The Ritz-Carlton, Istanbul

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This a wonderful example of turkish hospitality, combined with a great and landmark property. Following the recent renovation , the views from the spacious rooms, the emblematic lobby and the cozy outlets, combinable with top class customer service, really set the standards in the city and few other hotels can follow. Well done !

A recent couple of days in Istanbul had us at R-C at Suzer Plaza. Modern high rise hotel a little away from any activities - local restaurants and attractions are all a taxi away. Good views over Bosphorous if you select sea views, and rooms have good privacy in their design. Excellent breakfast buffet, and good evening bar at Bleu, which opens up roof and windows when warm. Truly excellent service throughout hotel.

Great views of the Bosphorus, walking distance from Taksim. Well trained and hospitable team. Concierge service is prompt and helpful. Good for kids and adults. Nice fitness centre and spa. Thoroughly satisfied.

HELP?! We stayed at this fabulous hotel years ago and loved the hot l and the city! We purchased two “RITZ CARLTON Istanbul” duffel bags from the hotel gym as spuvenirs. However we lost everything in a house fire. SO—I am looking to buy a replacement bag!If ANYONE has one (even used) to sell... PLEASE CONTACT ME! Thank you! -Isatnbul Lover, Nancy Weiss

I can't say enough good things about this property. Staff was outstanding, location was great, room was superb. After having some bad experiences at other Ritz properties I was a little reluctant to try again but this property was located just a couple of blocks from where we wanted to be and there was a good rate. Anyway, we were blown away. Bespoke service at every turn. It was near Taksim square (5 minute walk) but far enough to feel peacefully removed from the frenetic action there. It was also out of the square which made traffic better. (Although seemingly never good in Istanbul). Highly recommend this property.

The Ladies and Gentlemen of RC Istanbul did an excellent Job. The Hotel Location is perfect, the Restaurant is very good, the bar too... we had an Upgrade for Lounge floor, this was very exciting. Gökhan and his team helped us with different problems or questions and so we had a good stay... we'll home back soon! First Class - thank you!

We stayed here with our teenage boys, the new renovated rooms are stunning and even the partial Bosphorus view is to die for. Very good facilities, pool, gym, hamam, etc. Service at Reception, Concierge and Restaurants is friendly and courteous. Service in the rooms is slow. Plenty of amenities being worked on, including an outdoor pool. I would have given the hotel a rating of 5, had they paid more attention to the breakfast and food in general. At a premium property like this, more attention needs to be given to the freshness and variety of food. Long gone are the days when supermarket style flavoured yogurt in plastic containers was considered "quality" or typical branded cereal with not much attention to freshness or quality. Coffee should be better too including the variety of tea in the room. We just felt so happy sitting in our room that we never paid attention to anything, Bosphorus is one of the most beautiful views one can wish for.

For business purposes, predictability is important: no surprises. My business relies on staff’s attentiveness to detail; from the transportation from the airport, check in at reception to a perfectly supplied room, the concierge discerning dining recommendation, to on property meetings. I felt I had staff and general manager on call, and for their regular demonstration of attentiveness, I’ll stay at the Suzer Ritz Carlton Istanbul — in a heartbeat!

Excellent hotel, excellent people who always care about you in every moment of your stay... Very clean room, even partial view of Bosphorus is amazing. In the neighborhood of Nisantasi, Besiktas, dolmabahçe palace, step into history or newer part of the city in a few mintues.

Wonderful hotel and wonderful people working there. We had a wedding anniversary and my husband's birthday and the Hotel congratulated us with a very nice cake, big fruit plates and a bottle of wine. That was very, very nice. We had a very bad robbery accident in the city and shared our sadness with our favourite staff at the restaurant where we were having breakfasts and dinners. How touching was to get them all saying goodbye to us and giving us a wonderful present of Turkish delights and a leather wallet. Their names are Ayhan, Can and Buse. We don't have enough words to express our feelings to you guys!We are very thankful!
