Family of 5 from US. We stayed 3 nights. Perfect place to stay, because of ease in dealing with staff, restaurant in hotel accommodating to some non-adventurous eaters, location on the water, and the safety and security of the location. The accommodations were 5 star all around, incredible service, which
We arranged car service for pick up and return to airport, perfect. Arranged for guide thru conceirge and driver for 4-5 hours for 2 days and saw all of the highlights, very efficiently, with the best guide (Ezgi Tubay) have ever had anywhere.
Also did a Bosporus cruise which gave a unique perspective on the city.

Stopped for the night in Istanbul and decided to try the shangrila. Usually I have stayed at the kempinski close by. I am glad I did – i found the shangrila to be fantastic. The staff was welcoming, personal and helpful wherever possible. The food excellent. The rooms great, well designed with plenty of outlets. The Internet was extremely fast and free.
The spa and gym are great.
The only disadvantage is the hotel does. It have its own waterfront access. So for winter months no issue but I would miss sitting out on the Bosporus during Nicer weather.

Always a pleasure to stay at Shangrila hotel. Service level remains super. As a repeat guest you feel you are at home. The staff takes extra care to make you feel warm and comfortable. A recommended place to stay

Good location along the Bosphorus, and right next to the Dolmbahce Palace. Couple years into service and the hotel is certainly a hidden gem that gets overlooked.

Professional and Resourceful staff, especially the front desk and concierge where they were all friendly and helpful.
Room was spacious and well maintained, I had a balcony w a partial Bosphorus view, which was excellent.
Only knock is the lack of the horizon lounge, which if you are a golden circle member you should know what you’ll be missing out on.
Overall an excellent hotel with top notch service and ambience, and as a diamond member I can attest to their management teams living up to Shangrila’s usual high standards.

My wife and I and our 2 years old boy visited Shangri-La on December 4-6 and I can tell you that this place is simoly amazing. Staff, they definitely know what they’re doing. I got a complimentary message and it was very relaxing.
Location, the best!
Price, worth every penny.
Asked for an upgrade and was actually upgraded to an amazing room with a view.
Dining area, 7*. Special applause to Emre (breakfast) for his amazing friendly transparency.
In the end, I just insisted to rate this hotel a 5 star because it deserves every chunk of it.
Thank you, hope to see you soon.

My wife and I spent four nights at this hotel and felt very good about our experience and the value. We were in Istanbul as tourists and found that the location of the hotel was convenient while the service and facilities were exceptional. The room itself was immaculately designed with a lavish marble bath and very comfortable sleeping quarters. The spa at the hotel was nice… not the best I’ve seen but more than adequate and consistent with the standard around the hotel. We did not eat at any of the hotel restaurants as it was easy to walk across the street to one of many bars and restaurants within a 5 minute walk. Overall, I recommend this hotel highly.

This is my favorite hotel in Istanbul. Being located directly at the Bosphorus it offers a stunning architecture and very comfortable guest rooms. The indoor pool and jaccuzi are embellished on a grand scale. Breakfast is an experience in its own being served in the IST TOO restaurant. Most amazing is the very friendly and helpful staff. All in all a unique experience.

The Shangri-La Bosphorous hotel is an oasis of luxury in central Istanbul, situated on the Bosphorous with easy access to the Asian side of the city as well as to the main attractions. The service is exceptional and the Chinese restaurant in the hotel serves probably the best Chinese food I’ve ever had.

We stayed in Istanbul Shangri-La Bosphorus, Istanbul for 3 night in city view room the staff are amazing hotel + room was clean , location is super , food and breakfast was tasty but its a bit pricey hotel for what you get .. overall would love to stay again.

This is now my favourite hotel on the Bosphorus. Rooms are more sumptuous and beds more comfortable than the Cairagan, and the ambience in the public areas are warmer and more luxurious than the Four Seasons. And usually it is less expensive than these two. Views of the Bosphorus are excellent, the hotel is yards from the water. Service is excellent, a genuinely warm and friendly attitude from everyone in the hotel, in traditional east Asian fashion.

This is a really lovely hotel with amazing levels of service.
We stayed here for a night after disembarking a cruise ship in Istanbul. Early check in with a wheelchair guest did not faze them .
From the concierge to the restaurant staff , nothing was too much trouble.
I had booked a disabled room and it was immediately obvious that the bath room in the booked wasn’t wholly suitable. The front office manager was very concerned that we should have a suitable room and went out of his way to personally show us a variety of other rooms with differently configured bathrooms until a suitable room was selected. On checking out the following day he was there asking about out stay and assuring us that the disabled rooms would be improved.
Chinese restaurant was super and I’d recommend the Peking Duck . Lovely atmosphere too.
I’d stay here again, it is beautifully appointed, great catering and staff prepared to go the extra mile.
