Rated 5 out of 5 by LauraMay This hotel is unique
I love this Hotel Le Meridien in Istanbul for its elegance, essence in the environment, facilities, design and atmosphere. Food and Restaurant service are very accurate. Swiming pool and spa pleasant. Rooms really well equiped and relaxing. I have appreciated it for business stay but I will use it also for vacations.

was really nice and a great hotel. the check in was fast and we even were offered an upgrade to our rooms which was awsome.
The front desk staff were so nice and friendly, The rooms were very clean and the atmosphere overall was great in every part of the hotel. Generally, the area where the hotel is, considered to be a prestigous area.

I love everything about this hotel, from the stylish modern decor to the extremely helpful and friendly staff. The room was so spacious and I loved the remote blind in the bathroom. The food was also delicious and the Spa was amazing! It was not too far from the local shopping malls or the old city and taxis were readily available upon request. Taksim was only a few minutes train ride away from Levent. I'll definitely be staying again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NJLadee Love the view and ambiance
The hotel stay was very enjoyable and relaxing. Service was very good; extremely kind and accommodating; and the food was divine. Also, great restaurants nearby. Wish there were more places to visit within walking distance to the hotel but always was able to access taxi service immediately. Was able to use the voucher program Le Meridien has with Istanbul Modern so spent a nice afternoon at the museum; what a great concept.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ballenis Wonderful hotel
Le Meridien had been open only a few months and far exceded my expectations. It was one of the nicest hotels I have EVER been in. The staff were friendly and went out of their way to make sure anything we could want was available and did so in a most gracious manner.
While a bit of a way from the city centre, it made up for that with peace & quiet and was convenient to highway and cabs galour.
A wonderful experience!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by FirstTimeinIstanbul Simply Outstanding
The design and finishing of the junior suite were incredible, both inside and out. The views of the Fatih Sultan Mahmet Bridge and the Bosphorus from our room were spectacular. What was most notable was the impeccable attention to detail and genuine caring service, especially at La Torre. Other than being surrounded by very heavy smokers at dinner, it was an absolute pleasure to stay at Le Méridien Etiler in Istanbul.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GShosh best business hotel I ever had
relatively new, I made this hotel my "office away from office" for Istanbul. It is perfect fo rme as far as my customer locate, and with the facilities, friendlibess and professional staff, i can have meetigns in the hotel, saving time and efforts.
The only backdraw, which is common for all Turkey, is the lack of English speaking staff, althoug on all key positions always one has very reasonable English.

Le Meridien Etiler Istanbul Hotel is the perfect hotel which is sought out by a frequent business traveller like me. The room was clean with modern ammenities and was extremely comfortable. The breakfast was excellent and most of all the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I will definately stay at this property during my next trip to Istanbul and I have already recommended my colleagues to do so.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Traveller123 Satisfying, but needs improvements
This is my 3rd stay in Le Meridien in Etiler. My main reason for choosing is location since its near my company's office and close to Bosphorus. Facilities are nice, but can be found similar elsewhere. Pool area is very nice, above other hotels, and one reason for me to come back ito Meridien n the warm periods.
- Room cleanliness: One time the house keeping left used coffee cups I had used that morning, one time a full tray from room service was not taken away. Absolutely below standard.
- Restaurants are closed in periods during the day. I know snack are available in the bar but a hotel of this size and price should keep at least one restaurant open from morning to late night.
- Late check out was requested. I succeeded in having a 3 PM check out (I had to ask 3 times). I am happy it succeeded but as this was my third stay i Meridien I would expect more flexibility (I asked for 5 PM check out).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Crocus Very pleasant stay
Spacious, very modern and comfortable rooms with a magnificent view over the Bosphorus. The only problem was the very dirty windows I presume due to bad weather conditions recently. The Breakfast service and buffet hot dishes were not fresh, especially scrambled eggs. Also, I think it is time to provide some shading at the terrace garden 4th floor outside, the sun is stronger the day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Guest72 Shampoo Shortage
Thanks a lot for your staff for the very good welcoming during the check in and also taking care of all team properly during our 1 week stay. Everything was pretty good overall with some improvement opportunities.
1) Regardless of the level of temperature I set, it was pulled down to 19C after cleaning.
2) You never left an extra shampoo. I had to ask 3 times for shampoo at night.

Good hotel, the bad experience was the visit in the roof top bar and the discussing with the staff about loud music. There were only 10 guests for chatting and for drinks and we asked for reducing the loudness. somebod came to me and explained thats impossible because of club evening. thats an hotel and not an disco. and its generally not the best approach to discuss with guests.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Angela01 Clean, new and modern hotel
The hotel's facilities and room met my expectation. Bathroom is excellent. One big disappointment for me is my SPG Gold is not value here. I have been upgraded and been able to access lounge in any of the SPG hotels I stayed in previously. NOT HERE, no recognition, no better room provided and no access to lounge. Been told that only Platinum get the priviledge here!

Rated 5 out of 5 by boyda Great hotel
Fantastic view of Bosphorus and FSM bridge. Great service and food, if expensive. Wonderful facility. Near upscale shopping and restaurants. Not the place to stay, however, if you want to see the traditional old city sites. Taxi or car not feasible much of the day because of traffic. Public transport involves taxi to Metro, Metro ride, Funicular, and then tram.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nick291 Amazing staff
Being Platinum member I always get upgrades at Starwood hotels but this case was special: I am a smoker and unlike in many other hotels where suddenly front desk decides to give me a better room but non-smoking without even asking me what my priority is and than I have to argue with them, during the check-in at Le Meridien Etiler a very pleasant agent told me that I was upgraded to a residential suite and even though it is non-smoking, room has a large terrace where I could smoke. It is summer and always nice to sit on a terrace, Now this is attitude!!! Not many hotels do pre-arrival room allocations but this one does which means that they do think of guests' preferences and care about their comfort!
Hotel is very clean, extremely friendly yet distant staff and extraordinary club lounge with a huge terrace and wonderful attendants.
Even though the property is not close to attractions, the view from the room is breathtaking!

Very nice rooms! however the entry hall has a ver cold atmosphere: music far too loud, cold floor, cold decoration. Plants, art, light, etc. could create something unique in using existing infrastructure. Other example: elevators are beautiful but content on computer screen integrated in mirror destroy the astmosphere. what about cultural videos of Istanbul?

It has been a great experience to stay in this hotel.
First, as an SPG member I have been upgraded with my room, and had a extraordinary comfortable room with view on the bridge connecting Asian and European parts.
Food was very good, service is remarkable - very fast and high quality.
And last, but not least I got an unforgettable experience in SPA.

First stay. The hotel is very new. International standards. Tested all services except the SPA.
Breakfast choice limited compared the hotel level (eg. no soy milk, no diet breakfast). Normally not included in the rate. Very disappointed for the internet service (not included in the rate and very expensive). I'll come back again but please improve

Rated 5 out of 5 by KTIM Beautiful New Hotel
We stayed 2 nights in August in the beautiful new Meridien Hotel in Istanbul. The room and bathroom were both spacious and well appointed with a very modern look. The staff was most friendly both in the hotel and in the restaurant where we dined both nights and enjoyed the wonderful breakfast buffet both mornings. We also really enjoyed the rooftop bar and the incomparable views of the City, and a visit there is a must for anyone staying in the hotel. We also used the gym both mornings and it is well equipped and well maintained and clean. We were the only ones in the gym which made it seem like it was all ours for an hour. The concierage arranged for a guide for two days and he was fabulous and well worth the cost; and the concierage, Ezgi, is to be commended for her high level of service. We also had Turkish baths in the spa which was also a delight and recommended to all who have never had such an indulgence. We would love to stay there again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AAsadov Simply Amazing
We were fortunate to have a corner residential suite on 29th floor. Interior and hotel design is impeccable and so is the location of the hotel. In fact, you can see both bridges across Bosphorus while lying in a tub in the bathroom - the rooms are all surrounded with glass. Because our suite was corner, we had balcony surrounding it from both sides and we had amazing of magnificent city's skyline. To our surprise, room was not as impeccably clean - apparently, someone did not mop the floors well enough so there was some stain when we entered the suite. Otherwise, this goes by simply 'amazing'! What is even more attracting is the proximity of a great residential area Etiler - I would strongly recommend walking down from the hotel to Nispetiyye caddesi ending up at Akmerkez mall. It is sometimes a hard walk as road steep up, but worth to see the local flavor of the city's supposedly best residential area located literally within a forest in megapolis.
