Stayed at Le Meridien last month, and found the hotel to be great. The service level was second to none and the rooms are great. Spacey rooms with a great view over Istanbul, everything about the hotel exudes class. The only drawback is the distance to all the sites, expect a 20-30 minute cab ride to the best restaurants and the old town.

My partner and I spent a few nights here and we were very impressed. The hotel had just opened and they were still putting the final details here and there, but everything was impressive. The rooms were state of the art, the best of the best, the pool area was fantastic, and the restaurant had great food. Spacious, contemporary, great stuff, all you want. BUT far from all the main attractions. Other than that, the place to be.

This is a very elegant hotel and the views from the top floor bar are absolutely incredible. The rooms were well appointed and very modern. The staff was also extremely helpful and very attentive. The downside is the location. You are very far from the historic old town and the nightlife and restaurants.

I stayed in one of the top rooms overlooking the bridge. This is a great view and its a nice hotel. The rooms have the newest things and gadgets. The hotel is fairly new and this means all works and the the hotel is clean. The breakfast is very nice and the staff will ask you what you want even though there is a buffet.
The only thing its very far away from the airport and trade-show centers. But if you need to go into the old tow its well situated.

Room Tip: Get a room view on the bridge side

it is a nice hotel but you can't even walk to the Bosphorus for a walk or to public transporation. I wish SPG would update their website to say that this is not the place if you have only one day to see the sites. this is totally and completely dissappointing.

Dear dubaiexperience,

Thank you very much for your review and taking the time to share your experience on Tripadvisor.

We were saddened to read that the location of our hotel was below your expectations. Istanbul is beyond doubt a megacity which consists of numerous districts, thus,offering various and inspiring experiences to visitors. In this respect, Le Méridien Istanbul Etiler is built midst the city’s popular residential, shopping, business and entertainment destinations. Its close proximity to the Fatih Sultan Mehmet bridge connecting the two continents and to the main international highway provides our guests with an easy access to both international airports located at the European and Asian sides.

We very much look forward to another opportunity to host you in the future.

Best wishes,

Elif Aydınlıgil

This is one of my favourite business hotels in Istanbul. Wonderfully trained non invasive staff, well trained except the security at the door, but I guess that goes with her territory. Highly recommended will stay again.

Room Tip: Bosphoros View is just perfect for a relaxing stay

The hotel is quite far from the center, but really close to the second bridge. This makes it a really good location if you are visiting for business. The staff speak English (that is quite rare even in good hotels in Istanbul), the breakfast and food are good, and there is excellent gym and swimming pool. The rooms are really nice, big, with comfortable lamps and amazing decorations. I loved the lamps and the button that have a small icon similar to the lamp you want to turn on. The bathroom is big, spacious, wonderful shower and bath tub.
