The Raffles is still one of the best hotels that you can find in istanbul. It is very conveniently located for business and shopping. It is part of a large business and shipping complex. The views (if you get a Bosphorus view room) are great. The staff are very helpful and friendly and speak good English. The only downside at this hotel is unfortunately the food. I never had any dish that was tasteful. This is one thing that needs to be rectified. A hotel In this caliber should have decent food. Breakfast is not bad.

Totally loved this hotel! Super modern and spacious rooms, top notch service. Hotel is in non touristy part of Istanbul which we actually really liked. Spa was likely the best one I have seen in a luxury hotel. Their weekend brunch is something out of this world and is totally worth the money. Pool was sadly closed as they were working on repairs, and I can only imagine how awesome will it be once completed. I will be back

We as a family have stayed here up to maybe 9 times in the past 5 years. All of my reviews have been excellent but this time I left very disappointed. Usually we get two rooms but this time it was only my daughter and myself. We I checked in 11/10 for 8 nights and stayed in room 1703. NOT once did the butler staff check in on us to see if we needed anything at all. The special touch that kept on bringing us back was not the same 💯 . Even the cleaning crew had not cleaned the bathroom like they do I had to call them back to clean the toilet. Overall the service at the concierge was great as always. Especially Mete, Erdem and Deniz. I guess when they see a returning client they don’t think it’s necessary to give them attention.
