This place oozes class - it's not flashy or hip - just old fashioned glamour and deep quality. If you need a break, this is the place to come. Breakfast is a gorgeous and the view is fabulous. You could sit there all day and just watch the boats. It's part of old Istanbul - sadly, quickly fading.

The building and public spaces have a great historic charm and this hotel could be the perfect setting for a movie. Some rooms are renovated and some are not. It is difficult to find one where everything works: hot water, internet, view, etc... some rooms are decent sizes and suitable for families and others are barely enough for one traveler....

We went there on the winter and we were the second customer in that time. But the staff of the hotel was very helpful, view of the room was great. Going to Buyukada in the summer is hard because of the crowd but in the fall or winter all the island is yours :)

Cancelled our reservation at another hotel and walked in. We were given an amazing room overlooking the Sea. The room had a small balcony as well. It was midweek in late September so the hotel was pretty empty. The hotel is in great shape for being over 100 years old. The recent renovations have maintained the original character. The staff...

A building is very historical and lively at the same time. We enjoyed swimming pool and snacks afternoon. Cafe front of the hotel is must to visit. See view rooms are fabulous. The only negative thing is no AC in the room.

I and my husband spent two days in Buyukada and stayed at Splendid Palace Hotel. We couldn't have made a better choice. The building is a beautiful art nouveau building and the hotel has been beautifully renovated and decorated with full respect for the 1903 architecture and original style but nonetheless with all modern facilities. It feels like being in...

We have stayed at this wonderful property in July 2016. Hotel is very well maintained. A historic old wooden building’s character is remarkable. The view of the sea is magnificent. It is also a perfect location. This hotel is an excellent place to stay in Buyukada because of its close proximity to the ferry terminal. There are no cars on...

Buildin and staff are great. Location is ideal. But the view is splendid. You have to get a room with the seaview. There are things to improve such as hot water and shower with rain effect but still its worth a stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Splendid Palace Hotel…. A magnificent building with silvery domes and red shutters, facing the Marmara one side and the city of Istanbul on the other… a hotel in historical symbiosis with nature, retaining the nostalgic ecstasy of the past in Büyükada,s unique, peaceful and relaxing island atmosphere far removed from the stress creating nature of the city. In Büyükada as well as the other Princes Islands, horse drawn carriages are still the only means of public transportation.. Splendid Palace Hotel was inaugurated in 1908. Though inspired to some extent by ‘Art Nouveau’ the hotel clearly displays an east /west synthesis in architectural design with its bright inner couryard encircled with rooms, and the pillars on floors around the couryard.There are 70 rooms and 4 suites to accommodate 134 guests. Central heating is available for most rooms, and all are equipped with shower toilet and telephone. A restaurant, seating 90 people indoors and outdoors, offers to guests select dishes of Turkish as well as global cuisine. The swimming pool in a verdant surrounding of tress is the outcome of a building design which is in harmony wich nature. The Splendid Palace Hotel is one of Turkiye's few hotels which have been assigned special status by the Tourism Ministry , due to its being an unforgetable historical and cultural heritage… ... more   less
