If you like posh, up scale hotels this is the place to be. Very beautiful hotel with top notch service. The rooms are beautiful and spacious. Someone comes around to deliver water and anything you need which is awesome. The people here are all great. The breakfast was great with a beautiful view. This hotel is in a great location. However, I have to warn you Istanbul is a very busy high traffic city which makes it difficult to find a taxi or even try to drive here.

Hotel's Favourite
I have just returned from my lovely break in Istanbul. My first stay at this particular Shangri La Property and of course it lived up to all our expectations and more. The check in was super easy and efficient, All the front desk were great, all Covid precautions were explained carefully. Ali and the other gentleman at the Concierge were super helpful and guided me to my new favourite chocolatier in Istanbul 'Pelit'... The rooms are super spacious, clean and have all the amenities you would expect in a 5* property. Abdul Rahman was the kind gentleman who left fresh flowers in our room daily, and made sure we had plenty of water and anything else we needed. .. Breakfast was a dream, a great selection of food with the stunning Bosphorus as a back drop, Ufek in particular was wonderful and made sure our breakfast each morning was amazing, he also accommodated us super early on the day we were leaving, which we are very grateful for! Spa access is limited with Covid 19, however this did not stop me from getting a 90 minute DREAM massage from the lovely Puy, her hands worked like magic and I felt reenergised and relaxed. I cannot recommend her enough! Shang Palace is temporarily closed, but some of the items from the menu are available to order in the room service menu, and we tried most of it! My favourite was the seafood soup and noodles... Overall, the property is beautiful, the location is perfect and all the staff are willing to go above and beyond to ensure your stay is perfect. I will be recommending to my family and friends and definitely heading back in the near future.

An exceptional staff especially I would like mention here Mr Mustafa who is extremely humble while staying thoroughly professional. Breakfast environment and quality excellent. Food was also excellent especially Wok Friend Chicken with pineapple, Chicken Biryani and Lamb Chops Thracia.

Currently staying at this hotel. Speak English only - no Turkish. They look down on you if you don’t speak the language. I have stayed at many 5 star hotels and don’t feel like I’m staying at one at present. The staff don’t open car doors on entry, don’t open reception doors for you. Anything we ask for feels like we are asking for too much. Last night, we asked to see the pool facilities in order to plan our final day in Istanbul - the lady working at reception at midnight 14.10.21 was very rude and began to whisper about us whilst we were still stood there. Decor is nice and a nice location but that’s about it.
