Spent three nights at this hotel in early July, unsure what to expect since some reviewers have complained of location. As a single woman traveler I was very comfortable, not only because of the hotel's very welcoming staff but also because this hotel is right by the campus of the Technical University, with women students walking about freely. It is an easy walk to Taksim Square and Istaklal and also down to the shore, where you can easily get a tram to the old city. So not far away but as you walk N from Taksim, you escape from the hustle and bustle -- I loved the location.
My room was very comfortable -- terrifically comfortable bed, beautiful bathroom, very clean. Spa is outstanding, with beautiful mosaic pool available all day. Staff welcoming in every department. Delicious breakfast buffet, and I also loved the lounge, with free internet access.
I hope to visit Istanbul again and I will certainly stay in the Ritz-Carlton.
