As usual the W is a perfect hotel for me. It has amazing design and rooms. the only one thing is that is probably a 20 minute taxi (with trafffic) ride to the centre. There are nice places to eat and shopping near by. I spent 3 nights and would recommend staying here.

We just visited the W Istanbul for 5 nights. I picked the W based my preferences for Starwood being Platinum as well as wanting a U.S. based chain in Istanbul as it was my first visit to Turkey. I have stayed at many W’s across the U.S. and typically find them great properties. I had reserved a Marvelous Suite for...

We were surprised by the size of the tight size of the "Marvellous" room and the fact that there was no swimming pool - my bad, I expected a W to have at least a plunge pool to cool off in the hot Turkish summer. Concierge was often absent and more than once were we told to "call back in...

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.
