Rated 5 out of 5 by Miky Best Meridien Expeirence ever
I was a bit skeptical at the beginning, but when I saw the hotel, the staff the facilities and the people taking care of me, I definitely think this is the best option for a business as well as pleasure stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Istanbul1 This hotel has great service
Stayed at Le Meridien Etiler and found the service to be exceptional; service level provided by the hotel staff, from check-in, to the Club Floor level, Valet and Room Service - all were impecable.

Our stay was a real pleasure. The Hotel decoration is really great.
The room is big and well organized. The view on the Bosphore is exceptional.
Staff, specially in reception and Conciergerie, was helpful.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MJMJ Does not correspond a 5 star Hotel
I have never seen such a dirty balcony as in your hotel, this was for sure the first and the last time I stay in this hotel for a price above 200��� I expect a clean room (this inludes the balcony)

Very spacious room, wonderful bathroom, great balcony and great views over Istanbul. One drawback is the location: convenient for business meetings, but nothing around to walk too: needs a car.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Natssant One of the best LM
Service, room, gym, pool, food are excellence. Everything's seem to be perfect! It is one of the best LM in the world.
The hotel is in a great area but quite far from the major attraction.

Great hotel... an oasis in Istanbul... not particularly close to the most famous sites which help visitors rest and get ready ready for the following day's adventures...

Rated 4 out of 5 by Arnaudt What a nice welcome
The receptionnist was warm and I really felt welcome.
Room service: the portions where small. I would have expected a bit more in the plate for the price paid. Qality was good tough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Phizo An international hotel with flair
The hotel has every thing one may require.
The staff is very friendly and helpful.
If there would be a shuttle service to and fro to the Airport would add another star to the hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by drelapider An amazing experience
Stayed for 5 days in July, 2012. I have been to many starwood hotels, but Le Meridien Istanbul is among the best one. All the needs were met, and the staff were exceptionally excellent. A great view of Bosphorus. A little far from the city center, but it's only about 30 Turkish Lyra equivalent to about 15 Euros in a taxi. I preffer rather quiet and calm neiborhood and this one is IT!!! It's located at luxury neighborhood and there are many restraunts and shopping centers within 10 minutes in a car.
During my stay, one of my friend had an abdominal pain, so I asked for nearby hospitals. The concierge was excellent. They wrote me a note with the names of the hospital and even called the hospital for the available doctors.
I was more than 100% satisfied and so were my friends. I am from South Korea, and one of my friend is actually visiting Istanbul again with parents and is planning to stay at Le Meridien.
When I came back to South Korea, my friends kept saying about how nice the hotel was.
I definitely recommend this hotel to everyone except the ones who want accomodation to be near the city center.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bill Best Le Meridien Hotel ever!
We arrived at 8.30 am after 20 hours travel from Australia. Very friendly reception staff and with me apologising for our early arrival but still hoping for access to a room was blown away when told our "suite" was ready for us.
Yep, two storey suite on the Club level. Just perfect!
One minor glitch, someone had been using a pot plant on the balcony as an ashtray (when will these filthy smokers ever learn?!). I quick pic off to the Guest Services Manager and then wheels spun into motion.
Butts cleaned up, bottle of wine to the room, invitation to have breakfast in the dining room rather than the club, and a long chat with a very apologetic Guest Relations manager, Elif. Elif also contacted Le Meridien Paris and organised a suite upgrade for us which probably would not have happened upon our arrival at 10.30pm.
The Club Lounge staff were helpful and genuinely interested in us.
Yes, this hotel is a bit out of town if you are only in Istanbul to see the Old City, but a 25 min taxi ride at 30TL each way is nothing.
All the staff were fantastic, the hotel comfortable and modern. Yes, we will be back. Thank You!

I was on a layover. For 255 euro, the location should have been closer to the main attractions or the price of the hotel should have been much much less expensive OR perhaps you can offer a shuttle bus too and from the main sites a few times a day. My only option was a taxi for about 100 euro from a person who did not speak any english or a taxi to a train to a boat and then a taxi. when you are on a 24 hour layover, no one wants that level of hassle.
I paid 255 euro for the room 220 euro for the hotel transfer from the airport...that are both high prices to be left in the middle of a residential neighborhood with no option than a hassle of taxi or public transportation that was also no convenient. The Conceirge was very nice but he spent more time telling me what I could not do and only giving me trains, taxi, boat options. The hotel should run a shuttle. It is nice hotel but i would never recommend it and your information on spg.com should have said that the location is in the middle of a residential area and not close to anything.. You made it seem like it was very convenient. I felt very misguided.

Hotel is quiet,and staff is fantastic.
Food it good and amenities are great.
However, the only downside I had was that for business, this was not the most convenient place.

Nice room, good gym, but I don't know why the hotel is in a run down suburb, and - something they can fix - almost all the food, even the kebabs and baklava, was terrible
