Really great experience with my husband while we were here for work and play. The staff is really on point and the spa is great. The food is excellent and the grounds are beautiful with great views. The concierge was able to arrange a lot of our business meetings and have us taken everywhere that we didn't miss a beat....

In a such a happening city like Istanbul, this is quite the place to recharge your batteries without the feeling that you are missing out on the action. The terrace by the Bosphorus, the pool and simply the space you are afforded are just what you need to start your day, take a break from a long day of discovering...

We keep coming back... we cannot stay away... this was our third stay in three years! Rooms are spacious and clean. Staff are helpful and very accommodating. You cannot beat the view of the Bosphorus. My favorite thing to do is to eat breakfast by the river looking at the gorgeous view. We will definitely be back!

Amazing hotel. Location at the Bosphorus is simply fantastic and beats its's neighbor competitors. Service impeccable, very friendly staff and good service from check in to restaurants. the only handicap is that only few rooms face the Bosphorus directly. All in all, a great stay, will surely come back.

We stayed 4 days at this wonderful hotel. The location is awesome right at the banks for the Bosphorus.

Hotel is not very new, but it has lux and style and only premium audience surraunding. Open restaurant close to the water serving good food, nicely designed. Really best view to Bosphorus for best memories about Istanbul. Close to shopping area and located in good place.

What struck me most is the amazing service of the staff. Super friendly, service with a smile. The rooms are luxury, yet they lack a little "new" taste I would say. However, lunch, dinner, drinks outside on a warm day early May… all so good, we will come again. The setting of this Hotel is just the best in town....

Spent 2 night weekend in this amazing hotel. Location is outstanding, right in the Bosphorus. Gardens, pool, Terence all facing the water giving a relaxed atmosphere in this busy city.

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.
