“very good place to stay in Istanbul”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

The first thing to mention is the fantastic view on the Bosphorus from the restaurant terrace. Enjoy this view in the morning for breakfast and then again in the evening for dinner or a drink.
The food in the restaurant is excellent. The staff is friendly.

Room Tip: ask for a room to the side street. The noise from the Bosphorus might be heavy during the night. Thu...

Lovely room decoration, very fresh, very stylish and all new. Very spacious and very confortable rooms. Good internet connection. The location is good even though some of the restaurants around are a bit fishy.

This hotel has a perfect location, it is close to the Ortakoy where you can find a variety of restaurants and shops.
Breakfast and the service were good.
Traveled as a family, the only problem is that they didn't book us rooms next to each other, each room was on a different floor!
There is a huge parking space next to it, we woke up one night on people screaming and fighting...!

Spent 5 days with family at this Radisson hotel in Istanbul. On arrival, got upgraded to a business class room with a private terrace overlooking the bosphorus. Awesome view.

Hotel is located at a happening touristy place (Ortakoy) with many sea side cafes , small shops & a pier for boat trips - all within a short walking distance.

Staff were all friendly & made the trip memorable. Special recognition & thanks to Mr.Ozgur Sezek (Concierge), who helped with suggestions to all the great places to visit in the city.

Would love to visit again. Cheers!

Room Tip: Any business class room in the 7th floor. Would recommend 717.

Just back from 4 nights at this fab hotel. We booked a business class room with a balcony overlooking the Bosphorus. All I can say is wow! Couldn't stop smiling for 2 days! The view was awesome and sunbathing on our private balcony was a real bonus in a major city. Breakfast is served under canopy overlooking the sea with mood mellowing music playing. My husband almost fell asleep! Everything about the hotel is great including the staff who are 'reality on it'. Ortakoy is a fab area to wander into, take a boat trip, eat a kumpir or waffle which the area is famous for and just soak up the full Turkish experience. Tip-take a yellow taksi from ataturk airport for about 70tl - don't pay more, there are several touts trying to talk you into paying up to 250tl! Just keep your eyes shut - traffic is crazy!

Room Tip: Book a business class room as this includes free wifi, breakfast, slippers, dressing gowns, good vie...

I stayed in this hotel with my wife in the period from 1 June to 6 June 2014. I found this hotel location is one of the best locations with an amazing view on Bosphorus. The staff was friendly and what added a warm flavor is the hospitality of 2 ladies who let us feel as if we are in our home the first lady name is “Neda” and the second name is “Emine” working in the restaurant, I want to thank them and we thank the hotel of having such amazing staff. Also staff in the reception was friendly and helpful and they are smiling and keen to help us any time. I do recommend this hotel and it is near taksim and many attractive places. Thanks to Radisson Blu and me as Carlson club member I am recommending this hotel. Dr. Ali Kortam
