Hotel's Favourite
I have just returned from my lovely break in Istanbul. My first stay at this particular Shangri La Property and of course it lived up to all our expectations and more. The check in was super easy and efficient, All the front desk were great, all Covid precautions were explained carefully. Ali and the other gentleman at the Concierge were super helpful and guided me to my new favourite chocolatier in Istanbul 'Pelit'... The rooms are super spacious, clean and have all the amenities you would expect in a 5* property. Abdul Rahman was the kind gentleman who left fresh flowers in our room daily, and made sure we had plenty of water and anything else we needed. .. Breakfast was a dream, a great selection of food with the stunning Bosphorus as a back drop, Ufek in particular was wonderful and made sure our breakfast each morning was amazing, he also accommodated us super early on the day we were leaving, which we are very grateful for! Spa access is limited with Covid 19, however this did not stop me from getting a 90 minute DREAM massage from the lovely Puy, her hands worked like magic and I felt reenergised and relaxed. I cannot recommend her enough! Shang Palace is temporarily closed, but some of the items from the menu are available to order in the room service menu, and we tried most of it! My favourite was the seafood soup and noodles... Overall, the property is beautiful, the location is perfect and all the staff are willing to go above and beyond to ensure your stay is perfect. I will be recommending to my family and friends and definitely heading back in the near future.

I travelled with friends for my birthday celebration, Shangri La was a great choice. It is a very beautiful hotel, luxurious and lots of details in the public areas, very well maintained. The room (i was upgraded to Bosphorus full view) was large, comfortable, beautiful bathroom. A big thank you to the concierge team that assisted me with restaurants/clubs/ private guide for Old city tour / private boat Bosphorus cruize / airport pickup and dropoff with VIP service in the airport. thak you for the nice surpise with birthday card, balloons, cake in the room, i enjoyed a lot. This is THE place to stay in Istanbul, we will return for sure.

As usual, perfect stay in a perfect place. Lavish Breakfast, location, concierge service- all is close to be called impeccable. Spa service is something that is definitely worth trying. Turkish Hammam is a separate pleasure. Thank you Nuras Kvanc for your great care
