Editorial review:

Richmond Hotel Istanbul, located next to the Russian consulate, has a great location. Catering mostly to business clientele, this hotel is located on the city’s major boulevard. It has a 19th century façade, but behind the façade is a modern, comfortable and well run hotel. The standard rooms are comfortable but not spectacularly appointed, but the suites are great, with modern decor, excellent views and well appointed work stations, Jacuzzis and plasma TVs. It has one of the best bars in the city on the top floor. The hotel stays busy with its business clientele, so book early.

  • Bar at the top is wonderful - Rooftop breakfast room - No swimming pool - No fitness center
  • Great location - Close to the metro station - Excellent service - Great view of bosphorus

              Great location for shopping, restaurants, sightseeing & getting around. friendly hotel staff. Clean & safe. Would stay there again.

              A bit noisy at night but it did not bother us.

              The only positive thing , is the location , otherwise it is the worst night ever I lived.

              The pictures of your site about this hotel were not what I saw in reality , very narrow , the ac was not working , no wifi , miserable wiew

              The location of the hotel is on a pedestrian walking street which I found convenient and interesting.. The hotel itself is attractive, my room was clean and well tended to, the breakfast was good. My room was also at the rear of the hotel and therefore, very quiet. Overall, I liked the hotel and might well return there on another visit to Istanbul.

              I thought the hotel personnel at the front desk were not especially helpful. I didn't seek help very often but when I did, I came away dissatisfied.The hotel management should try to remedy this situation.

            • Older travelers
              9.0

              Great location, and very good food.

              No free water in room as all other hotels did.

            • Group of friends
              4.6

              Location excellent.

              No air conditioning that worked, terrible service from the staff (no maps, no help with directions, no advice on restaurants). No call from manager despite requesting it. On complaining re the rate given we couldn't sleep in the room as it was so hot we were informed that the hotel could not do anything as it was booked through Booked.net.

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              Great location, helpful staff, particularly the team in the hotel office when I wanted to print out boarding passes. No problems at all.

              Advise punters to take a room the garden rather than the street side, as could be noisy. The hotel staff were only to happy to accommodate our change of rooms (although I had requested already garden side when booking)

            • Group of friends
              8.8

              The location in Istanbul, near to all.

              10.0

              Be sure to reserve a room to the back of the Hotel, the front street is absolute city center without any second of silence all day round.

              The location is very nice. Just at the walking shopping street. Nearby a lot of bar, resturants, sturbucks. Free internet. It is simply nice and very good choice who going to visit Istanbul.

              There is no lift from ground floor to Lobby at 1st floor. there is a speciaous stair but travellers with heavy luggage will face uncomfortable without a help of bell boy

              The central location, good standard of rooms

              The breakfast could have been better with greater selection of breads and filtered coffee.

              I enjoyed the magnificent view from my room on the Bosphorus.

              The sound of some kind of ventilation or exhaust system outside.
