Doha, Qa
Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

Lived to the W standard. I regret staying elsewhere in Istanbul. Easy access to places around: restaurants, shops, high end shops, and sightseeings. The only down thing was breakfast, it was not the best. Great variety of rooms giving you nice choices

W Istanbul is easily one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. Like boutique hotels W has its own charm. Some love it and some find the decor a little strange. I love it. My room had a nice little balcony and they had kept some turkish sweets as a welcome gift. What sets this hotel apart from...

Stayed at the W hotel for just one night as a stopover to Dalaman. It is indeed ideally located if you are planning to discover Istanbul's tourist attractions and don't want to spend your day in a taxi (traffic is still pretty horrendous to get to the hotel - took us more than hour hour from Ataturk airport). I was...

I stayed here for two days and loved every minute of it. The staff was super friendly, the hotel room was lovely, spacious and full of sunlight. Everyone was very helpful and kind, from the front desk to the 'Wherever, Whenever' concierge, to the room service. And despite the very 'chic' atmosphere of the hotel, they were very kid friendly....

I know by now that many W Hotels have nightclubs/bars which go all night long. I mostly like the atmosphere this brings to the hotel but in Istanbul it was just a bit noisy. The no smoking rule also seems to be forgotten after dark. We were in the most basic of rooms which was lovely albeit the sleeping area...

I didn't give it 5 stars but it is a wonderful hotel with a great, great staff. We loved our room with the outdoor sitting area. The only con's were that it isn't the most convenient location and lacked some facilities that other W's have. To it's credit, it is located next to several eating spots.. just not the historical...

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.
