Raffles Istanbul, Istanbul
Only two words will describe this extraordinarily place: Awesome Luxury !!!!! The hotel is well maintained, designed with an excellent taste. Located at the best shopping center in istanbul which offers a great shopping and excellent restaurants. Staff are polite, smiling and always there to assist. Spa is one of the must beautiful spas I ever seen. Very clean hotel. Always smells good in the room and the hallways. Rooms are incredible and big. The management keeps on surprising the guest with all kind of treats to the room over thier stay. Room service is professional and quick. I really can describe it as luxury without any doubts. I would like to mention miss Nazh Irem which was the representative who checked me in. She is amazing and very professional. Thank you for everything Nazh. I will definitely come again and again and again....!!!!!!!

Wonderful hotel and hotel experience.
A 5 Star experience in every way. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Location is outside the city centre but if that is ok there is no other reason not to stay here.
