CONCLUSION

For my last day in Istanbul, I had thought of staying at another Hilton hotel, after all, I have Diamond status there. But when I came across a great rate of the Radisson BLU Bosphorus Hotel Istanbul on the internet, I did not hesitate and booked it at once. The same room at the hotel's website would have cost 125 EUR without breakfast so it was definitely a great deal. Although I've stayed at the Hilton Bosphorus and Conrad Istanbul in the past, the Radisson BLU Bosphorus is the closest one to the Bosphorus Bridge and offers the best view ever during breakfast 😍 The room I got was located on the other building although it was only a few steps away from the main building where the breakfast restaurant and the health club are located so it was not a problem. The buffet had an extensive offering and of course the VIEW. Location wise, it is very close to the shops and restaurants surrounding Ortaköy Pier Square. Overall, I really had a wonderful stay at the Radisson BLU Bosphorus and for the price I paid, it was one of the best values ever.
