Booked a turkish hammam at the Shangri-La. Had to pay an extra 100 lira for a private room which I found a total rip off. Nothing amazing; actually had better turkish hammam previously. I chose to add on a full body mask for some 100 lira i think, which is found isn't a mask at all but a mixture of milk and honey drizzled over my body! Very disappointing experience. High tea after the spa was quite good. A lady playing the harp and wide variety of sweets. Not enough savory finger food though. Go... Read more

Perfectly situated on a property that permits astonishing views of Europe and Asia across a beautiful body of water. Safe, right next to the headquarters of Istanbul police. Feel you can walk anywhere, and you should--there's a lot to see. I've never stayed at a more beautifully decorated and appointed 5-star. They've thought of everything here. A very new hotel and modern. Staff bends over backwards to make you happy. And get this, a great evening meal to be had at the hotel's restaurant... Read more

My wife was especially nervous about our Istanbul visit in view of recent events and wanted to select a hotel that would give her the greatest sense of security. The hotel is situated right on the water and provides clear views of Asia and the Bosphorus. The hotel quickly allowed my wife to relax and provided a central spot to venture to the major sights. I must add that the Istanbul locals that we had contact with could not have been any friendlier or hospitable. Without any reservation, the ... Read more

This is a brilliant property in a fantastic, lively and friendly city. We visited with our year old son and were looked after superbly for four nights. From the moment we checked till the moment we left, the staff were simply superb. Friendly and knowledgable, nothing was too much trouble. They were brilliant with our son, be it the breakfast staff, or the ladies in the tea lounge/bar area or the general staff in other areas.

My 8 year old and son and I spent a few nights here and had the most wonderful time. The minute you walk in you know you are in palatial luxury. Don't let that put you off, the staff are warm, friendly and eager to assist you. We enjoyed daily swimming in the gorgeous, clean pool. I have to make special mention of the food, it is delicious and far more flavoursome than the usual high end fare in Istanbul, a reflection of its Far-Eastern origin. Special Thank you to the Restaurant and Lobby staff... Read more

The hotel was booked on our behalf by our cruise line - after a delayed flight we were relieved initially that we had such a lovely hotel to stay in . The room and amenities were superb. Sadly that's where it stopped !! We went down to breakfast and it was chaos , tables were left uncleared and it was a struggle to find a table. Once seated we waited a good 10-15 minutes before a waiter asked us what we would like to drink . We ordered coffee which arrived after constant requests . It was best... Read more

Just outside the Be?ıkta? ferry terminal, this wonderful hotel overlooks the Bosphorus Strait. We were picked up at the airport by a hotel car (a bit of an expense but a great feeling!) and delivered to this special place. They advertise their rooms as posh. They are. All the normal stuff you would expect in a 5 stare hotel, free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, tea and coffeemakers, minibars, sitting areas and marble bathrooms. We went to all the restaurants, the elegant Asian/Mediterranean rest... Read more

The hotel is located in a very good place , I'll start with the room service because they were something I never faced in another hotel they were more than helpful I never asked for anything and didn't have it!!! The loopy is so relaxing spot and they have a very nice restaurant which is the Asian one! The view is nice as well and the security around the hotel is perfect they make you feel safe believe me!! They have private helicopter and luxury cars for transportation.

I liked almost everything about this hotel, one of the top 3 hotels in Istanbul. The staff are amazig, but still need some more experience in handling the issues. As I had dirty old carpet ar my room event hough they washed it. It was still the same , I guess they should have changed my room or upgraded it. I highly recommend this hotel and I wish that my next stay will be better.

I arrived at the hotel early one morning after a tough night on the train and bus from Bucharest and must have looked a bit of a mess. The staff didn't bat an eye, and instead of telling me to come back later, managed to find a room for me to recover in until my room was ready later in the day, as they had a big wedding party staying. This was pretty characteristic of the hotel, putting the needs of guests first. I loved the location - both access to ferries right outside the restaurant and ple... Read more

Upscale hotel on the bosphorous, with great views from our room, thanks to an upgrade to our room. The other views wouldn't be recomended. They don't have any pool, dining or bar facilities outside which is a downside for such a hotel. The SPA is wonderful with very attentive staff, very recomended.

Fabulous hotel. Great location. Beautiful views across the Bosphorous. The Spa and spa staff deserve special mention. The manager Zeynep was a consumate professional, and the massesue Katherine was a natural talent. Katherine specialises in Chi massage. She has a family tradition in this field, and really helped us with some long term injuries, beyond what we could have hoped for.

Istanbul is spoilt for choice when it comes to 5 star hotels. You should choose Shangri la . Our stay was perfect. Room very clean, wifi reception excellent, food specially Turkish is Yummy. But the service tops them all. Have stayed at Ciragan on previous stays and found their service wanting and the company after every penny they can squeeze out of you. In contrast found Shangri La to be very generous.
