    I really enjoyed the friendly welcome and assistance of the staff at the Riva hotel.I stayed for 4 nights and whenever needed help or find out about a place or how to get there the staff were very helpful and patient giving directions.The taxi organised by the staff to get to the airport was also very nice and much better than a normal yellow cab!!

    Reception staff polite, friendly & helpful. Riva hotel is set back from main road which is great - with quiet streets as away from noisy traffic & dust. Safe area. Room & bathroom good size, very clean & fairly bight. Amazing lovely power shower! Has tv, air con & small mini bar fridge. Bed comfortable. Daily Maid service - clean towels & toiletries top-up daily. Good breakfast selection. Location to icc Conference centre excellent - 6 mins walk. Lots of minimarkets & restaurants around Riva hotel. Close to Taksim metro/Funicular and shopping area. Enjoyed my stay at Riva hotel.

    No tea or coffee making facilities. Could do with extra lighting around wardrobe / room safe area.

    Location was excellent next to Taxim square. Hotel staff at reception specially Mr. Yasin were nice and helpful.

    first it's location ,near metro and bus stations and specially for the persons who want to use havas bus (shuttles from the airport).we lost our flight and they are very kind and give us a good price for an extra night.

    in the evening foods smell was very disturbing even in the reception

  • Couple

    The room had a fabulous view of the Bosporus and the Dolmabahce Palace, unobstructed by the Intercontinental Hotel that blocks the view from other hotels in the same area.

    Power outlets were unreliable. My laptop computer, which charged without any problems at other hotels in Istanbul, did not draw any power from the Riva hotel outlets.

    hotel location is great.

    the only problem was a thin walls between the rooms. it was particularly stressful when your neighbors are eight old women from greece coming together every night to discuss international top news ;))

  • Group of friends

    The hotel is conviently close to the lively Taksim square and Istiklal boulevard and it has very friendely staff. Also the rooms are very clean and neat.

  • Group of friends

    The Riva Hotel is located in a pleasantly quiet area close to the Taksim square with perfect places for dinner and Turkish tea, just around the corner. The hotel is nicely designed, the rooms are well-sized and the shower is exceptionally pleasant. The breakfast was good. A very good choice when attending a conference in the area.

    The mattresses are on the hard side.

  • Family with children
