Why we like it
The Raffles in Istanbul doesn't do things by halves, as one would expect from one of the most famous hotel names in the world. All rooms offer Bosphorus views, there is a ballroom with space for 1,200 dancers, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a heliport and a signature Raffles Spa, set to be one of the largest in Istanbul.
