Dust on the shelf. Small bottle for the complimentary drinking water, no body lotion. We stayed in Spectacular room, which had garden patio. However, again...

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!

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.

Dear Saïd, I thank you for taking the time and reviewing us so very kindly. The property is indeed beautiful, with over 100 years of history trapped between the walls. You also have the perk of being in the very centre of Beşiktaş, where you basically have the rest of Istanbul in immediate reach. See you again in this beautiful...

We stayed in the W Istanbul for 3 nights on a city trip. The hotel is in the trendy neighbourhood of Besiktas. Bus, Ferry and Tram are just a few minutes away. Best feature was a mini handheld device that gives you free internet and tips while you stroll through the city. Fantastic Gym and Bar. Highly recommendable!

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.
