Le Meridien Istanbul Etiler

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 October 2012

This hotel took a long time in it's soft opening, so now that it's properly open it should be really good

It tries hard. Everything is there, but it still lacks that confident feeling of a really good hotel - maybe it just needs a little more time and patience. I hope it works it out

The spa area is super the beds great...
The location is so so..
They upgraded me to a wrapping balcony suite.. loved it so much wanted to never leave.
There are sligh oddities such as curtains that open funny and the glass fixtures gather dust on the inside
But over all a great adition.
Note that there is only one computer in business center and u cant open powerpoints

Dear Valuable Guest,

It was a great pleasure to read your comments .In Istanbul you need almost from every location a taxi, but the good side is taxi rides are very decent in price. One of our advantage is we are close to the famous Bebek area located at the Bosporus and shopping malls. Thanks for commenting on the window cleaning and the computer in our business hub which we will review critically.

Thank you very much for choosing Le Meridien Istanbul Etiler and we look forward to welcome you again.

From the new generation of Le Meridien i can say that LM istanbul is great from its entrance you can feel the luxury , very nice reception staff , giving you all the information you need to have a pleasant stay . I was lucky to check in on a day where normal spg gets the Gold benefits, so the receptionist upgraded my room and my request of having the high floor was done and i got a room on 17th floor.
Elevators are quite fast , wide , very clean . Room is really spacious , with a bospherous view through the panoramic window.
Bathroom is large and you have nice shower as well as bath tub , amenities are v nice and layout of the bathroom is super , i even took photos to make the same design for my house.
Large TV with different channel options, generous minibar and a very comfortable relaxing chair.Amenities offered in the room for welcome is soo delicious , chocolate cigar ( see the attached photo).
Internet is fast and easy to access.
Staff are very helpfull and nice specially the concierge.
Restaurant design is WOW.
Metro is 10 or 5 minutes away by taxi but it worth it.
Truely 5 stars and i do recommend it to anyone visiting istanbul.

I stayed at the Meridien Etiler for five nights. Like the other reviewers, I agree that it is a wonderful place, very new, modern and clean. The rooms have a great size, beds are super comfortable, you have all sorts of amenities and a lovely bathroom with excellent shower and tub! The gym is fantastic as are the indoor and outdoor pools (although the location of the outdoor pool is not so great as you are in full view of the restaurant). The buffet at the restaurant is great, lots of variety, and everything you would like.

The things I didn't like:
- You are far from the city with Istanbul traffic even worse, so unless you make a point to go downtown you are missing the whole of Istanbul
- I still can not comprehend 5-star hotels that charge for Internet!!!!
- The sizes of the roomservice food is TINY!

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you very much for your elaborate review.

Being a very new property, we are working very hard to achieve the excellent service quality our guests are entitled to get and in this regard we very much appreciate your encouraging comments.

Though we provide complimentary internet access for our Starwood Preferred Guest elite members and also at the public areas for all our guests, we do believe that your remarks on this matter requires further evaluation from both our side and the hotel industry in general.

Thank you very much for your suggestions regarding our in room dining services, your feedback has been shared with the relevant department.

We hope to welcome you back to Le Méridien Istanbul Etiler very soon and would like to thank you again for your insight.

it was my first stay in Le Meridien hotel in Istanbul.
I have been in most 5* in the city so i can have a word about each.

1.Great location if you need to cross to the Anatolian side or you want to live the Bebek area where most of the nicest posh expensive bar restaurants are. If you want to experience the Beyoglu area or the sultanahmet area then i would not recommend due to the traffic.
2.Very friendly and professional people in the reception and concierge willing to assist 100%. I got an upgrade too since it was available. Very polite and kind which is the most important on my view!!!
3. Breakfast is nice with good variety of food. Of course it can be improoved but still there is not much missing.
4. Outdoor Pool was great, indoor pool also big enough and very clean
5. Rooms where very nice, lots of facilities inside the junior suite kitchen, espresso machine, oven, dishwasher, big shower room no bath though!!! very big balcony with great view also to consider as a +++. Very comfortable beds too!!!!

Negative think is that they dont clean often the only one carpet existing in the room so there was dirt on it, but the rest of the wooden floor or marble floor was perfectly clean.
plus considering that i was paying 400euros per night i would like to see my self in a more spacious room than that one. Size is big enough but if you consider that there is a dressing room, kitchen/welcome area, small living room , shower room and bedroom it ends up to be quite small in total.

5. Fitness center was fully equiped.

As a conclusion i will be back in Le Meridien Hotel for sure!!!

Room Tip: Club floor rooms with balcony is a must!

Dear Valuable Guest,

Thank you for sharing your kind comment on this platform. As you rightly said the hotel has easy access to the famous Bebek area, next to the Bosporus, with many restaurants, bars and cafes. Additionally major shopping malls are pretty close to us, while still located in the more quieter upscaled, Etiler surroundings.We are happy to read that your overall stay was quite enjoyable, but we do realize as well that we still have to work on a few issues and we will adress them accordingly.

Thank you very much for choosing Le Meridien Istanbul Etiler and we look forward to welcome you again.
