Amazing service and accommodations! My sister, my mom and I chose to stay at Romance Istanbul based on the good reviews we saw when researching hotels - and we were not disappointed. The staff are helpful and always pleasant. We’d like to thank Zumre in guest relations, Tayfun, at front desk, Ramazan at front desk, Dilek in the dining room, and Menekse in housekeeping. The airline lost our luggage and front desk helped us with making calls and were instrumental in assisting us in getting our luggage back. The staff made our stay wonderful and helped us in planning our daily trips into the city. In every way they made our trip a great experience. Thank you and we plan on coming back and staying with you!

We just wrapped our stay at the Romance Istanbul Hotel and loved our stay here. We can’t say enough about the wonderful staff here that made it much more special. Our luggage was delayed when we arrived. The staff was incredibly helpful and went over and above in their service to get it to us. Special recognition and appreciation to Tayfun and Ramazan for helping us with locating and getting our suitcases to us, Zumre for her excellent concierge service and daily meetings to help plan our day. Also want to recognize Dilek for the delicious Turkish coffee and Cay every day and making breakfast that much more delicious. And lastly to Menekse, our housekeeping lady for doing an excellent job in our room. All in all, this hotel is highly recommended to make your stay in Istanbul that much more special. We’ll definitely be back again!
