From the beginning until leaving every details were perfect. Staff, rooms, restaurants.. and lobby..the best. is a die for..How many hotels has a huge bosphorus view from its lobby? All services are what you expect from this level of hotel. Definitely recommend to friends who wants to feel this beautiful city. Choose executive room. Enjoy lounge. İt worths the money.

Bosporus view is a must. Moonrise on the roof. Knowledgeable concierge. Excellent advice for fish restaurants in Asia. I really cannot overstate the pleasures I've had at this hotel. It is quite a ride to the tourist places south of the river.

I go for the spa, the sports club and the pool. Perfect service. Friendly staff, delicious food in five star hotel atmosphere. One feels really hosted good even at the poolside. Towels, showers, everything in perfect shape.

Istanbul is a city that blends very old and very new. The Bosphorus waterway is the separation of Europe and Asia.

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.
