    Location 5.47 /10

    The Hotel Richmond is situated in the new town, in the heart of the busy pedestrian Istiklal street, 655 feet from Taksim Square. The airport is 12.5 miles away. Allow about 25 minutes for transfers.

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    The 108 rooms are large and very clean. They are furnished with a sofa and coffee table. The beds are covered with a duvet. They have air-conditioning and a mini-bar, a direct telephone with international line, and satellite television. Soon, most of them will be equipped with a private safe. The bathroom has a tub, toilet and a hair dryer. Despite the obvious comfort, it is a shame that the decor is not a little nicer. Ask for rooms 412-420, 521 to 518, 609 or 611: they all have a view over the Bosphorus and Topkapi. However, avoid the rooms overlooking the street on the lower floors.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    Built in 1990 and renovated in 2001, the Hotel Richmond is a 6-storey building whose modern glass facade is a landmark on Istiklal street. The large lobby is located on the first floor of the hotel. As if in homage to the Pera area (18th-19th centuries) which the hotel is close to, its lines evoke Art Nouveau while maintaining a modern standard of comfort. Continue through and you can have a drink in the Cafe Nostalgie, the hotel's bar.

    Food and drink 7.45 /10

    The hotel's restaurant is located below the ground floor. The decor is nice (stone walls, little oriental area) but the place is a bit dark. Here breakfast is served buffet-style. For lunch or dinner there are Turkish or international dishes. In summer, the hotel opens its beautiful panoramic terrace on the roof, where you can also eat.

    To know

    On the ground floor, the Cafe Lebon takes its name from the very famous patisserie that used to be located just opposite the hotel. Since it closed down, the Richmond has taken over the name. Even though the patisseries on offer do not taste the same as the original shop, the Cafe Lebon is still a gourmet address in Istanbul.

      This is a discreet little place at the very heart of Taksim, the city's business district.
      With its fine restaurant and pleasant staff, the Feronya primarily attracts business travellers, though it is also a good place for a perfectly pleasant getaway.
      Nevertheless, a good bit of renovations wouldn't go amiss, particularly where the rather gloomy communal areas are concerned.

      The style of the Nippon is elegant and designer, its common areas and guest rooms decorated with simplicity and character.
      The hotel opened some ten years ago, but it has kept a youthful and energetic atmosphere, taking advantage of its small size and its location to attract a mixed clientele: a perfect establishment for holidaymakers but also well equipped to cater for those travelling to the area on business, the Nippon is the ideal establishment for a stay in the capital.

      • Location 6.39

      Located close to the Marmara, this hotel has a young and dynamic style that is rather convincing: take, for example, the restaurant that caters to business travellers and employees who work in the surrounding offices daily, as well as the clean, private, and welcoming spa.
      The strong point of this hotel is undoubtedly its proximity to Taksim Square, the business centre of Istanbul and a hub for nightlife.
      The Taksim is a discreet place to a stay, either alone or with your family.

      Efficiency and style are undeniable features of the Midtown Hotel.
      Located in the heart of the Taksim district, this hotel, which caters to a large business clientele, appears to easily meet the various requirements of its guests.
      This hotel is a pleasant place to stay for several reasons, one of which is the welcome afforded to its guests.
      If you have the opportunity (and luck), ask for the Corner Suite: this is definitely the best room in the hotel.

      As its name indicates, the Sumahan on the Water is a little world on the water. Inside, it displays a balance of lines and shapes that create a modern style and is never cold. This is a bit of a surprise given the exterior aspect of the building, which management wanted to keep as nondescript as possible.
      This effort to go unnoticed speaks of the attention afforded to the guests, in terms of welcome, service, and cuisine. The Sumahan blends luxury and attention to detail together with know-how, efficiency, good taste, and quality.
      It also commands one of the finest views of the Bosphorus there is. It really is in a league of its own.
