Room size is half compare to Divan, Intercontinental, TomTom. Deco is 90s, hallway is narrow. Wifi coverage is very poor, either cannot connect or keep dropping every 10-15 minutes. Business Center is closed due to renovation. Maximum of 2 people at the front desk with concierge desk empty. Checked in for 20 minutes, and left for TomTom.

The only 5 stars I would give this hotel is for the location and views it offers. Everything else is below average and is the worst Radisson Blu I have stayed in. Service was almost non existant: - At breakfast : No one cleaned our table from the previous patrons. We ordered our drinks that only arrived after the 4th...

In a small street, close to the Bosphorus (overlooking it from a chic bar at the hotel). We had a big clean room with a nice and comfortable bed and sitting area including wi-fi. There are small shops and restaurants in the neigbourhood. We will definitely comeback again!

The hotel is very well situated on the coast of the Bosphorus with a perfect view of one of the big bridges leading to Asia. The hotel has a very nice outdoors restaurant with a delicious breakfast (try the egg white). Another big perk is the Coldstone creamery right the corner.

It is easy to dismiss a Radisson hotel but the Radisson Blu Bosphorus defies that stereotype. Delightful location in the Ortakoy neighborhood. Plenty to see just walking around with lots of bistros and outdoor bazaars. Right on the Bosphorus. Rooms are not spectacular but nice. Probably the biggest complaint are the prices in the lounge. $8 usd for a beer...

Its location and view is great, but rooms are not. Towels are old, room floors are old and the bath tub is terrible. I was falling twice and my husband fell, luckily just some bruises and bumps. They need to change those bath tubs as our friends next room complained of the same problem.

Having already stayed in the heart of the tourist district (Sultanahmet) earlier in our trip, it was nice to be in a somewhat quieter setting with views over the water. This hotel lacks the charm of other Istanbul hotels, as it is more oriented for business travelers (e.g., no turkish rugs in the rooms), but the room and bathroom were...

Staying in Besiktas

Neighbourhood Profile
Besiktas
In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighbourhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.
