Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stunning property! Spent few days there and the stay was memorable because of the Guest Experience Manager Bora, who was so attentive and provided amazing hospitality. He made the very first stay so special and memorable! The rooms are specious, amenities are top notch! But people who work there are amazing from the doorman to housekeeping every person is friendly and welcoming. Can’t wait to be back🥰 Çok teşekkürler!

As Bonvoy Elite members we absolutely love staying at The Ritz! This was no exception! The only reason we’re giving this experience a 4/5 is due to a number of small minor things that we hope the hotel can work on. At check in, and as Gold Elite members, we are offered an upgrade if available. At no charge. However, we learnt from the employee who checked us in that there was indeed an upgrade available, but he wanted to charge us 150 euros a night for it .. We turned it down. The Club Lounge is not the best we’ve experienced in the world. The tables are not always cleaned, we had to look for one that was clean on all three days of our stay. We wanted to order something to eat from the menu since the options available on day one did not suit our dietary restrictions and the first sentence to come out of the staff was “it’s chargeable”. Exactly like that. I mean .. We understand it is, and even if it wasn’t, I am sure there is another way to explain this to guests. Overall, the breakfast at the restaurant is great! We dined at Nobu twice, it’s phenomenal. Rooms are clean, and they offered us a late checkout and an early check in which was nice.

This hotel has maintained its track record in exceptional service from the first time I stayed back in April 2012 - 12 years ago. The staff is super responsive and attentive to your needs. I travel to many cities around the world and stay at many high end hotels some whose quality have significantly declined esid silly post pandemic but this hotel has really kept its quality and attention to its guests. While the facilities like the gym and rooms could use some upgrades it’s still a notch above many 6 star hotels. I have been a loyal customer since 2012 and I choose this hotel over others in Istanbul. Special shout out to the F&B manager in the restaurant on 1st floor serving breakfast. He maintains vigilance in quality of experience of guests and keeps staff on their toes. Tables are cleaned immediately as guests leave and he personally will wait on guests when things get busy. Also in the spa Hasan is probably one of the best massage therapist on earth. I would like the spa to reopen the hamam for guests to use on their own to relax when not in use as a paid service like the old days.

We were so excited to stay there. All the amenities we desired. As we checked on they told us the pool spa and humam were closed. They should have told us this when we booked. This soured our experience They said we could swim at another facility by cab. Not what we were expected from this trip

We had the most marvelous stay at the Ritz Carlton Istanbul . While there we noticed the letter from Mr Marriot on their Hall of fame display near the elevators and we could not agree more with what he had to say. We are a very fortunate family who travel widely and often. We have stayed in some great hotel around the world and enjoyed some wonderful customer service , but we all agreed , this hotel, and in particular, the staff , are beyond compare. From the moment we arrived , without exception, every single member of staff we encountered made us feel so warmly welcome and that nothing was too much trouble. I have heard it said that the difference between a good hotel and a truly outstanding hotel is that a good hotel will provide whatever you need or want , whereas a truly outstanding hotel will provide a level of service and satisfy and ‘needs or wants ‘ before you even realised you wanted it ! It felt to us, like the staff here were so attuned to their customer’s needs, that they anticipate and provide everything and anything in advance ! Particular elements of our stay that stand out were , the wonderful pianist at breakfast , the generous and delicious Easter egg left in our room , the delicious breakfasts and the views ! Room service was wonderful - we ordered a pizza and fries at 2am and they came fresh and delicious and even a little plant on the table ! Drinks and food offered in the bar were also delicious and served with a warm smile ! However hands down, the very best part of our stay, was down to the way the staff made us feel , as Maya Angelou once said ; “ people will forget what you did, people will forget what you said , but people will never forget how you made them feel.” And every single member of staff made us feel like royalty ! And for that , we thank them very much and while this was our first ever stay at a Ritz hotel , it will certainly not be our last ! We will forever keep a special part of our hearts in Ritz Carlton Istanbul ! In terms of location , it’s about a 20 mins taxi ride into the main center but taxis are available directly from the hotel and we found them reasonable. I am pleased we were a little out of the main hustle and bustle of the main city as it felt like a quiet calm retreat from the busy city . The Dolmabahce Palace , is walking distance and in my opinion far more impressive than the Topkapi palace !! A fantastic place !
