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... More

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... More

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.

The hotel is in the heart of Besiktas district, surrounded by many cafes, small local restaurants and shops , including a large supermarket.

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.
