Radisson Blu Asia Istanbul Review

Posted on July 25, 2015 by in Hotel Reviews

The Radisson Blu Asia Istanbul is located on Istanbul’s Asian side (no surprise there) in a business district called Atasehir. There aren’t a lot of sights for the Istanbul visitor in its immediate vicinity.

However some Things to do in Istanbul aren’t too far away – namely Kadikoy and Moda.

I stayed at the Radisson Blue Asia Istanbul for two nights and really liked the hotel despite its less favorable location.

First of – the hotel is just 3 years old and shows practically no wear and tear. The lobby is just beautiful and the whole interior design in the building is outstanding.

The basement houses a big spa – just the gym is on the small side for a major hotel. The outdoor pool looked nice but was VERY windy during that time of the year. Everything that wasn’t 100 pounds or more became airborne – you simply could not enter the water.

Courtesy of my Gold status I was upgraded to a Business Class room on the 13th floor. I also received a welcome amenity (a huge fruit basket) after asking what kind of welcome amenity would be offered.

The room was very modern and clean. I loved the design of the room. The bathroom was of good size and came with a huge rain shower.

The Internet was rather stable and rather fast at about 3 Mbit. At Radisson there are no Internet tier levels – which is great if you have no status – but if you have VIP status it does not give you the advantage of an improved Internet speed.

The breakfast had almost the same spread as in the Radisson Istanbul Bosporus – though it was even better presented and had a few different items on top of the already wide selection. I found the quality to be just ok.

Since this was the end of Ramadan weekend – rates were just EUR 69 which I found fantastic value.

You can book the Radisson Blu Asia Istanbul here.
