Last week we were at the Ciragan Palace Kempinski for the wedding of a very close friend of ours. What "palace" means is a question to which you will certainly find the answer at the Kempinski Istanbul. The surroundings, ambiance and quality of service are absolutely fantastic. The staff are amazing in the way they provide service. I would like...

I got a good rate on the hotel rooms from Orbitz, and I am glad I stayed here (we were considering the Four Seasons, which is nearby but you will probably find this nicer). A lot of the celebrities stay in this hotel and the location and views are excellent. They have a very good weight room (gym) and the...

First and foremost, if you land during the day i would recommend organising an airport transfer. It costs EUR 30-40 (don't do it through the hotel as will cost closer to EUR 150). The traffic is so bad in this city of 20 odd million people that a metered taxi could cost a fortune. That said the drivers will normally...

I wouldn't usually spend this amount on a hotel but we had been travelling across Europe for two weeks and I felt that we deserved a treat. I had booked using Amex's FH&R programme, so got a few extras - breakfast, upgrade, restaurant credit etc. In a previous life, this grandiose property on the European side of the Bosphorus was...

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.
