I was lucky enough to have a suite on the 8th Floor of one of the blocks in the Swissotel. My room had an amazing view that overlooked the Bosphorus River. I had a decent size kitchen (even though I didn't use it) The bed was super comfy, and the shower was exceptional. The large shower head poured down with...

We arrived at the hotel yesterday. During booking process I got a bit upset with the hotel on the airport transfer rates. It certainly upset the staff as they remembered that during checking in. I must say that after that all got just better and better. The 2 bedroom apartment is lovely and well equiped. The service is amazing. Breakfast,...

This is a renovated hotel. The lobby & entrances need renovations. The room is small but the view is panoramic. It was expensive to get this view. Breakfast is excellent. Overall the hotel is nice but old

The hotel is very nice and location is quiet. The view is another magic story. The staff is very friendly and helpful smiling. The bad point is that I asked them to remove Alcoholic bottles from the room but the requested extra charge and the insurance payment is too much. The breakfast is very good but not many choices. Every...

We stayed in a corner executive room for 1 week with a lovely view of the bosphorus. There were a few minor negative points which are worth mentioning. First, the breakfast that was booked with our room was on the 17th floor executive lounge, not the main breakfast restaurant below the lobby. We didnt know this, and if you wanted...

For sure it is not a BEST hotel in town. But to me personally top 10. Location is very good in a quiet hill overlooking Bosphorus. Breakfast offers wide choice of meals. Hotel is not very new and I would love to see it a bit renovated. Price is reasonable.

Staying in Besiktas

Neighbourhood Profile
Besiktas
In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighbourhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.
