The Grand Tarabya is situated far from the buzzy city center. It has an ideal location in a quiet residential area of Istanbul. Thus I could make pleasant walks along the Bosphorus bank and visit the lovely fishing village next to the hotel. The Grand Tarabya is modern functional elegant comfortable. Its lobby is as large as a station hall....

Excellent service, adamantine premises and exquisite decoration and style. Best Spa I have seen! It is a great pleasure to stay in a safe area next to the Bosporus and have a relaxing and friendly atmosphere to look forward to after a long day.

This is 5 Star hotel all the way from entrance, location, room, dining and service. I recently had a trip to Istanbul and this hotel is in a very safe location compared to other areas in Istanbul such as Taksim. There are some very nice restaurants in the area and the people in the area were very friendly to tourists....
