Shangri-La Istanbul

The Shangri-La Bosphorus Hotel in Istanbul located on the European side of the Bosphorus, where East truly meets West, sits between the Dolmabahce Palace and Naval Museum.

The Shangri-La is a modern oasis, created from a former tobacco warehouse of the 1930s. The hotel takes design cues from the glamorous Dolmabahce Palace with swathes of marble, glittering chandeliers and a mix of European, Asian and Turkish design. A grand staircase winds down the hotel’s three-story atrium, transporting guests from the lobby to the elegant ballrooms and other venues below.

As always, dazzling views will surround you throughout your stay as you overlook the unfolding panorama of Istanbul’s domes, minarets, and the green hills of the city’s Asian shores.


The hotel’s guestrooms are the most spacious in Istanbul (ranging from 42 to 60 square metres), and the majority offer dazzling Bosphorus views. The 186 rooms outfitted with every amenity expected of a five-star hotel. Nearly all of the hotel’s 17 suites have private terraces offering beautiful Bosphorus vistas. The ultimate indulgence is the Shangri-La Suite, which has three terraces overlooking the Old City, Asian shores and the Bosphorus Bridge.

On the same level as the lobby is the hotel’s speciality restaurant, IST TOO. Set against the backdrop of a Bosphorus view rose gold floor lamps, and spherical ceiling pendants light the restaurant’s wide expanse of Turkish marble. IST TOO is a feast for the eyes with a sushi bar; vast Wine Salon with full-height, glazed wine cabinets, and an open kitchen where chefs cook over the 12-metre grill.

One floor down from IST TOO is the hotel’s signature Shang Palace restaurant, where chefs from China prepare delectable Chinese cuisine and carve Peking Duck tableside while the Kung Fu tea master pours tea.

The hotel also features CHI, a spa with eight of the most indulgent private spa suites in Istanbul offering Asian and Turkish treatments.
