Editorial review:

This lavish spot is located in the Dolmabahce neighborhood and overlooks the Bosphorus. The rooms are amazing and have gorgeous views. The spa has a Turkish bath, there's a Mediterranean-Ottoman restaurant, and the staff is incredible and bends over backwards for guests. However, some criticized the building's appearance among all the mosques. But the amazing service more than makes up for it.

Verified Reviews:

  • Close to everything - Well equipped gym - Enjoyed the rooftop pool - Highly recommended
  • Massive rooms - Best views in istanbul - Pool and spa were delightful - Price is high
  • Internet expensive - Loved the club benefits - Spa is great - Amazing breakfast
  • Close to the taksim square - Rooms had an amazing view - Loved the bathroom
  • Beautiful hotel - Service is incredible - Worth every penny - Noise problems

                    it is a very classy hotel and the staff was extraordinary professionnal and eager to answer the guest's needs.

                    no. everything was perfect

                    the sheer luxury of the place!

                    location was not ideal (though a number of other (international-chain) hotels in same neighbourhood)

                    The good service. Despite the fact that the phone at my room was not working, they made it up by transfering us to a cornor room that was bigger than my original room with the same rate for the entire stay.

                    the location down the hill, so if you have to get by walking to Taksim square you would have to climb up the hill first.

                    service was terrific all languages spoken with ease one of the best ritz-carlton experiences I have ever had (please note I have stayed at many throughout the world)

                    The location and amenities were terrific, but what makes this hotel special is the warmth of its staff who take hospitality and guest comfort to the next level.

                    The ritz carlton was comfortable, staff was friendly and always alert.

                    The service and staff were excellent. On arrival we were given our rooms but we were not happy with them. They made the effort to change them although they were quite full.The staff in the restaurant and the bar were excellent and always very happy to provide any assistance.

                    The Service was exceptional - all of the hotel staff were very helpful and welcoming and took extra good care of our 2-year toddler. We felt completely at home. The room was comfortable and clean and the breakfast selection was great. The view of the bosphorous from the breakfast room was superb.

                    My biggest complaint was that the Spa did not allow us to take our child (accompanied by both parents) to the swimming pool. The only other thing we did not like at first was the location - which was not perfect because of traffic congestion when taking short taxi rides - it was sort of "in-between" places ratehr than "somewhere" (between Taksim Square and Dolmabahce Palace) - but we later considered it to be an advantage, as it was only a 10 minute walk either way.

                    We enjoyed our stay and would strongly recommend the hotel for its excellent service, cleanliness, good breakfast and spa.

                    The internet in the room should be provided free of charge as it is a five star hotel.

                    Excellent staff. They were very polite and helpful. We enjoyed our stay.

                    The hotel has one restaurant only which does not go with Ritz reputation and standard. Internet should be available for free at rooms as the room rates are really high

                    Every thing there was interesting specialy the rooms tibe and the free wifi in the loobey lunch.

                    The location, it is not so far from Taksim but usually I like to stay mor near to the center and metro staion.
