Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 August 2012

We (my wife, 11-month old son and I) stayed in this hotel for 5 nights in Aug 2012. We picked this over the W since it looked more family-friendly, which was confirmed by our pre-reservation interactions. The hotel's facade is quite spectacular in how it rises among a fairly affluent Istanbul suburb. The rooms were excellent - we were upgraded to a suite with a guest bathroom, kitchen and large terrace with breathtaking views of the Bosphorus and the Fatih bridge. The breakfast spread was great, and had the right blend of local flavors and evergreen favorites (I'm a big cereal buff, and wasn't disappointed). The amenities - pool, gym, spa - are excellent. Service was great too - we once had an issue with our living room TV, and they sent someone to fix it within 5 minutes. And he fixed it within a couple of minutes!

Only downside is the location, which is somewhat far from the sights - Taksim and Sultanahmet. There is a free shuttle on weekends which goes to the Metro station (<10 minute ride), from where these places are within 10-15 minutes. We also took cabs a few times which cost 25 TL (approx $14) to get to the city center. Not bad, overall - would definitely stay here again if given the opportunity

Room Tip: Ask for a suite with a balcony. I believe floors higher than 10 have a view of the bridge

Dear Valued Guest,

We were very happy to read that you and your family had a lovely stay with us. Your kind comments regarding the responsiveness of our staff has been shared with the team and it was a delight to read that we did not dissappoint a genuine cereal enthusiast

The room you have mentioned staying at, is one of our ‘residential’ suites being one of the most popular among our guests. They trully inspire the ‘home away from home’ feeling.
We hope to welcome you again very soon,

Warmest regards,

Elif Aydinligil

I Have never taken the time to write an online review about any destination I have traveled to ,but I feel compelled to share my experience at the Le Meridien Hotel.I select this Hotel primarily because of the reviews that other had posted.I now add my accolades to those who have experienced the pampered service of the Le Meridien staff.Everyone ,from the receptionist who greeted us upon our arrival to the dining staff and housekeepers were attentive and gracious. I have traveled a lot,but I have never been at a hotel where my room was cleaned and made up by the time I returned from breakfast . Food was excellent!!! The Hotel are very very modern and absolutely AMAZING!!!!! TRUE 5 STAR HOTEL !!!!!!!!

I totally fell in love with Istanbul....Le Meridien helped that love progress. The service was excellent!! its a new hotel and very very modern...The staff was great and very attentive. We upgraded to a suite when we checked in and that included breakfast!! very well worth it..we also had room service and it was sent almost immediatly... I love this place and highly recommend it. The roof top bar is sexy and exciting also.. Turkey is a great place and this hotel was the icing on the cake!!!!

Room Tip: visit all the landmarks and dont miss suada ....INCREDIBLE... P.S. Skip the hair salon in the hotel...

I recently stayed at Le meridein in Istanbul for the first time. Granted, my platinum status upgraded me to a suite, but it was outstanding. The rooms were mindbogglingly. A guest bathroom, full kitchen, and exceptions oversize terrace with breathtaking views, The breakfast was very good, and the service was exceptional. Overall, the perfect stay.

The one downfall is the distance from town center / subway access.
