Hotel staff was very courteous. We were upgraded to a very large room without paying extra money. Hotel is very far from tourist places. Uber is cheaper than normal taxis but uber is not legal in Istanbul. For example, It takes around 70/- TL from hotel to Blue Mosque.
Great Stay. Good hotel for business/meeting. ”
Loved my stay. would recommend to anyone coming to istanbul for meeting/business. Far from Sultanahmet or Taksim. Free shuttle service to airport & City center. Good wifi. breakfast menu was great as well. Overall a satisfactory stay.
The hotel is on Kochman Cad, free parking, free Wi-Fi, excellent breakfast the thing is, I got excellent value for money, around 150 US$ per night, where next time I wanted to book the hotel was offered and 550 US$ per night. I guess I was one of the lucky visitors who got a good price.
Overall it was a good stay, but I faced a negative point caused the lack of satisfaction is that I have booked an executive room, but unfortunately that front desk staff does not know the difference between the spaces of each type of rooms in the hotel or the hotel where there is no classification of the rooms in terms of room space because I booked in my last stay a duble room and it was larger from the executive room were it should be the executive room larger than any other type
The best in Istanbul”
It was one of my best stay in a quiet Luxury hotel with friendly staff close to the airport provide shuttle services to airport and the city center and I recommends this Hotel for those who are looking for quiet Luxury hotel with friendly staff in Istanbul.
EXCELLENT STAY AND VALUE FOR MONEY”
MY FAMILY AND I ENJOYED OUR STAY AT THE HOTEL. THE SHUTTLE SERVICE PROVIDED BY THE HOTEL ENSURED THAT WE WERE ABLE TO MAKE THE BEST OF ISTANBUL WITHOUT HAVING TO PAY EXORBITANT TAXI FARES. ROOMS WERE TASTEFULLY DECORATED AND THE BUFFET BREAKFAST HAD A GREAT VARIETY INCLUDING A DECENT SELECTION FOR VEGETARIANS
Breakfast isn’t what I was expecting 5* hotel otherwise hotel is a nice place
It's a good stay.
Great Staff and Excellent B-Fast, Very Clean”
very nice hotel, upon arrival we got free upgrade we loved our stay the workers were very friendly and went out of there way to make our stay beautiful
nice place to stay; close to the airport”
The hotel is 10-15 mins to the airport but the traffic from the airport to the hotel is terrible, it took 45 mins to go the hotel although the hotel is just 5-10kms away.
Does not kive up to its 5-star rating”
Terrible! The bed mattress was sagging, the male hotel receptionist was unresponsive to requests of getting our safety deposit box fixed (we arrived there with it locked), the female receptionist merely pointed us to the taxi stand when we requested her to assist us to talk to the cab driver of driving us to the Salizpari port (we ended up getting lost with the cab driver for 20minutes), the breakfast buffet was filthy and all over the place, its breakfast options unaccommodating to western travelers, aaaand... Who charges extra fees for fresh juices?!
The worse hotel I ever been”
The windows did NOT have ANY noise insulation around them Therefore forget about having good sleep or any rest since it's near to the airport, I checked few rooms and all are the same. Also hotel reception are aware of this issue. Hotel Shuttle service it's not anything that you can count on it so you will end up to pay at least $50 per day for taxi! Adding these extra expenses and uncomfort stay so you better off to book hotels such as intercontinental hotel in the center with luxury services.
Good Hotel but far from centre of Istanbul ”
The stay at Retaj was pleasant and we cant fault it or the staff Main problem was that it was far away from anywhere Even though the hotel sets up buses to take you to places - it is not always available and convenienent Therefore with young children we used taxi(expensive) and underground(cheaper but time consuming) This hotel is closer to Ataturk airport NOT Sabiha airport - unfortunately the cheaper airlines fly to Sabiha from UK not to Ataturk -- so what you save in hotel and flights you spend in taxi Lastly, haggle hard with taxi drivers (start at one third of what they ask and settle at 50%)- there are plenty of taxis so dont worrry if he thretens to drive away - another one will be only around the corner Enjoy Turkey !!
large well furnished clesn excutive rooms ”
close to airport with nice shuttle very comfortable rooms breakfast quality is not at the level of hotel stars (4 stars breakfast )and its female staff uniform is very pleasant and respectful however it is old and over used need to be renewed
Newly constructed Hotel”
The hotel is newly built so the rooms are clean. The toilet was choking at times and also the safe was not properly installed. No restaurants around and very far from the city (sight seeing). They do have complimentary shuttle service but the shuttle drops you on a road where its very difficult to find a cab to go sight seeing. Its a good 20 minute uphill walk. Its a nice hotel if its a quick in and out business trip to Istanbul.
convenient but far from sabina gochen airport ”
The hotel was clean convenient and near to Ataturk airport but so far for Sabina gochen airport and Taksim square .
