“Perfect 4 Days Stay in Shangri-La Bosphorus, Istanbul”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

I stayed 4 days in Shangri-La last week, it was the best Hotel I have ever tried.
Checking-in was so smooth, they were waiting for us and checked us in with their tablet device in the room instead of standing in front of the reception desk, first time to see such usage of technology in hotel business.
It was my wife’s birthday and I requested the hotel management for some arrangement for the occasion, they made a wonderful arrangement (Cake, Balloons, Turkish delights, candles, .. etc). They did an amazing job with the decoration and we celebrated the occasion on best Bosphorus view you can have in Istanbul.
I am really grateful to the hotel General Manager Mr. Vito and his team for the wonderful arrangement.
I tried both of the hotel’s restaurant and in-room dining and it was really nice experience.
The concierge team really care and spare no efforts into helping you to plan your day in Istanbul. Thank you Bahar for all your help.
Location is perfect and close to major attractions of Istanbul.
You will never regret trying this hotel.

Perfect for tourism, to visit the town in a comfrotable site, well located to reach the main parts of the town, but in a very calm location. Excellent breakfast and pool. All the personnel were very kind and efficient.

After doing a 9 day tour and attending the ANZAC Dawn service we wanted a nice place to have last 2 nights in Istanbul and we were not disappointed. The staff when we 1st checked in were very polite even at 11pm. The bags were all at the room placed well as we had some well deserved beers and cocktails from the bar. The room itself was beautiful with a hand written note welcoming us. Bed was very comfortable with great pillows. The bathroom was excellent with tv built into the large mirror. On the last day we had to call front counter as required a Dr due to my partner struggling to breath after picking up a virus. The staff were excellent and assisted with the translation to make it easier for us. All in all they made you feel welcome and that you have paid to be here so let's make their stay and experience they won't forget and tell people why they should stay at the Shangri-La Bosphorus.

Stayed at the Shangri-la Istanbul for 4 nights over easter. I have stayed in plenty of luxury hotels over the years, and Shangri-la Istanbul is without a doubt up there with the best of them. The facilities are 1st class, marble and gold throughout. The rooms are very spacious and luxurious. The staff amazing - Front office manager Yalin made sure our stay was amazing. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for something special.

Room Tip: High floors gets a better view.

I thought about staying at Four Seasons but in the end decided to give a try at the new Shangri-La at Bosphorus. The all experience is amazing. The hotel is immaculate, services impeccable and the location is perfect. They have the best Chinese restaurant n Istanbul and an afternoon tea that is to die for. The only thing that I did not get it is the lack of open spaces. They could have built a rooftop bar or a swimming pool in the roof like the Fasano in Rio and this hotel would be unbeatable. We got a Bosphorus View room and the view is very shy. Next time I would definitely go for the front view at the 5th floor.

Room Tip: Get the Premier Room. The Bosphorus view is just partial view.

I stayed at the Shangri-La Bosphorus with my mother and husband. From day one, we found the staff courteous and helpful. The concierge was exceptionally helpful in giving us sight-seeing advice and we consulted them before we set out each morning.

We stayed in a premier room which had a gorgeous view of the Bosphorus. From our room, we saw dolphins frolicking in the water. The bathrooms fittings were modern and sleek.

The breakfast buffet was delicious! It was wonderful to start the day with a breakfast of Turkish honey on the honeycomb with clotted cream and a pot of Apple Tea. I would highly recommend a meal at the Shang Palace too.

Thank you for hosting us. A special thanks to Katy for receiving us warmly.
