I was in Istanbul last week for a business meeting with our European counterparts and was putting up in a lovely hotel called Radisson SAS Bosphorus Hotel. This is a chic hotel located along the Bosphorus strait, a couple of minutes from the Ortaköy Mosque and other tourist spots. Lots of eating and specialty shops around the neighborhood too. Very convenient indeed.
The exterior of the hotel is nothing to shout about. In fact, its main entrance is located on a side road and is rather inconspicuous. The rooms and even the lobby is something else though. The rooms are decorated in a variety of contemporary styles with alot of play on mirrors, lights and murals. The feeling is more like a showflat than a standard monotonous hotel room. Very refreshing especially after a long day at the office!
Two thumbs up! I will definitely be back should i visit the city again.
