My room was in excellent condition and had a wonderful view over the Bosphorus, but was distinctly compact; I...

Amazing service, friendly and very helpful staff. At the reception they helped us to arrange a taxi to the airport at a very good rate. The food was excellent, fresh, and varied. Excellent buffet breakfast. Don't forget to have a drink at the bar on the 16th floor and to take picture- amazing panorama of Bosphorus and the city.

Having a room with a Bosphorus view made this hotel worth it. The location is a little far from some of the main tourist attractions, but the service and quality of rooms was amazing. Beautiful interior and great food!

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.
