“Simply amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

Top notch hotel in Etiler. We had a wonderful experience staying at this Starwood property. Even though it's quite a hike to the central old town (Sultanahment), there are enough distractions nearby. The staff is professional and very helpful. We were upgraded to a junior suite which i didn't want to leave. Awesome hotel amenities such as the indoor pool, hammam, workout facilities, and spa. Make sure to visit the roof, as most reviews suggests. The views of the sunsets and skylines from the wrap around terrace are A+++.

Upscale,beautifully appointed, comfortable rooms, friendly helpful staff. It is a bit far from the main tourist spots, but close to lovely restaurants and shops along the Bosporus. The most remarkable feature is the roof top bar with a spectacular 360 degree view of Istanbul! Priceless!
I would definitely go back!

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the Bosporus and an upper floor.

The more I travel, the more picky about outside area of the hotel I am. I found Istanbul having all the palitra, from shabby houses in the center to glamorous clubs and villas on Bosporus. The hotel stands with the latter. I would classify the hotel as average 4 to 5 star property, with some nice things like very helpful attitude to the kids everywhere, friendly service. Room was OK, but definitely less than 40 sgm mentioned on the hotel page. Furniture could be not so cheap for that hotel category. Everything was functioning, big balcony with nice view at night and noise from traffic jam throughout the day. Breakfast is OK, bar is OK. We realized very quickly with the help of concierge that for dining would be better take 5 minutes drive to Bosporus line to enjoy that famous Turkish Mediterranean cousine. Concierge is very helpful, though to choose dining restaurant also double check the recommendation from the hotel on tripadvisor, it helped us and saved some money

Stayed here for a night unfortunately but would undoubtedly return!

The design of the hotel and the comfort are out of this world. Every detail has been thought of, and it's wonderful to see such a new building (therefore with the benefit of floor to ceiling windows to appreciate the incredible view from your room) that incorporates a strong flavour of local design throughout with striking geometric carvings. It somehow aligns local style with a global brand, and cutting edge modern design with traditional touches - very cleverly done, and very impressive. We really enjoyed the spa and had dinner in a lovely restaurant nearby.

In addition to the lovely design and comfort, the staff really made our stay here. They were incredibly attentive, paid huge attention to the details and went above and beyond to ensure we had an unforgettable stay. Thank you!

The rooms in the hotel are undoubtedly excellent, and in particular the lighting and bathroom are outstanding. The staff are efficient and friendly and the property itself cannot be faulted. The location, however, is remote. I came to Istanbul as a tourist, so staying here was impractical. There is nothing within walking distance, not even to eat or drink outside of the hotel, and the nearest public transport is a EU10 taxi ride away. It is a perfect business hotel, but an impractical tourist one.

Room Tip: Higher rooms have stunning views.

I stayed at Le Meridien Istanbul for one evening as a result of a delightful birthday present given to me by my daughter. The fittings and ambience are second to none - very modern and extremely luxurious. Staff were pleasant and helpful and the reception staff spoke good English (although in the spa and restaurant language skills were less honed). They very kindly gifted my daughter and I beautiful cake and fizz as a result of it being a birthday booking, and put us in a corner room with amazing views of the city and the Bosphorous as my daughter had requested. The spa and indoor hammam/swimming pool are beautiful and peaceful. Overall the impression of this hotel is that absolutely no expense has been spared in ensuring the comfort of the hotel's guests, literally everything has been considered - right down to the perfume wafting through the public areas - and the staff are charming and helpful to a fault. A great stay!

Room Tip: The spa is only marked 4 due to the fact that the outdoor swimming pool was not yet open, a mild dis...
