First of all the pictures that exist at the booking.com it is not relevant or even close to the truth. I booked this hotel because it's written that the building is hotel is very old since the 18th century and it's reflecting the Ottoman Era.. as its building was used at the 18th century for Dolma Bahçe Saray's Labours.. I...

The worst hotel experience. First, everyone should know that this is not a "family hotel". Very Dark interior. Very bad color choices. The atmosphere is uncomfortable. Rooms are very dark. The walls are all red. The lighting is red. The bathroom is in a place, the shower is separated as well and the sink is in another place in side...

Dear Wael, Many thanks for sharing your W Istanbul experience. Our property was designed as a blend of modern design and glimpses of the Ottoman tradition. Our guests particularly enjoy the Private Cabanas; as they provide an outdoor area connected to the room with a personal bridge. Your disappointment about the in-room amenities are noted. I would like to personally...

Dear W Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your W Istanbul experience. I'm sorry to see that your stay didn't meet your expectation. I personally spoke with our Director of Style and saw the cleaning of the carpet through. A stained carpet and a dusty room in a 5-star hotel is, of course, unacceptable and the necessary...

I visited this hotel in 2009 and it was perfect. Now it is something else! First, they removed the lobby! now you have to enter from the back door and pass the bar/nightclub to enter your room. Second, I reserved a non-smoking room but when I checked in it was full of smoke. Third, the rooms aren't so clean and...

Great location, happening place, an hotel with music and ambiance. Great decoration, boutique type and the staff is super friendly. They would do what ever to make you happy. Breakfast is very nice, cocktails are gorgeous, Live music in the evenings. Shopping areas near by with great designer boutique and walking on the Bosporus is just a few meters away.

Dear Stephanie, "They would do what ever to make you happy." - I guess it goes both ways; since your review and opinions are truly valuable for us. First off, location! We are centered at the heart of Istanbul, footsteps away from the Bosphorus, with easy access to both the historical and the modern quarters of Istanbul. Our B&F (Beverage...

The hotel is in the heart of Besiktas district, surrounded by many cafes, small local restaurants and shops , including a large supermarket. It was nice to find a bustling pedestrian area at the footstep. Great for eating out or drinking. The hotel itself is a typical W: stylish, dim lit, friendly staff and signature rooms. Check-in was super easy-...

Dear W Guest, The Besiktas district is truly full of surprises. You cross the street and there's a new world. The contrast between the modern Akaretler Neighbourhood and the rest of Besiktas (local and traditional) is amazing. Our talent has adopted the motto: Whatever / Whenever. Whether it's a room upgrade or tips on the local scene, they are happy...

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.
