This hotel is located in a bustling center, all you have to do is walk across the street and you have very good shopping. The backside of the hotel is the bus for us, best place to have breakfast or lunch or dinner. The only downside is only a few of the staff speak English well, the other ones know very little English.

Dear All, My name is Moussa Osman and I am emailing you in regards to my recent stay at Shangri-La Bosphorus, Istanbul. I came here with very high expectations and unfortunately, I am extremely disappointed and we'll never visit again. I felt like the hotel was a 2 star hotel at the very maximum. The service was horrible and the team was very unprofessional and rude. Also, I had booked a room specifically the one I wanted but then was surprised to find out that it's not the same room and was charged another 600 Euros for it! So disappointing with the horrible service and treatment.  Overall, I am very dissatisfied with my short stay and my expectations were not met at all!

The familiar scent when we enter the hotel, the staff who go extra length to make you feel welcomed, and at “home”, the efficiency of checking in and out, the helpful and smiling faces of the staff, the comfortable beds, and hardworking housekeeping teams, and the delicious and consistent quality of the f and b. What not to like here?
