5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

I loved everything. The location is out of all the crazy tourist areas. Taxis don’t take long to get to the hotels on the Bosphorus for dinner or drinks or to the old city. During our week in Istanbul, we ate and drank at most of the other five star hotels in the city. We were always thrilled to go “home “ to the Raffles. Our room was huge with a lovely balcony. The spa, fitness rooms and indoor pool exceeded our expectations. We fell in love with Istanbul and can’t wait to return to The Raffles property.
