The Ritz Carlton is very conveniently located - close to Taxsim Square. The hotel is comfortable with a good range of facilities. However the lobby area is not very spacious or comfortable for meeting visitors. The Bleu Lounge is a relaxing place to have a drink or light meal. Breakfast is ok but not spectacular. A big plus, if you...

It is a very comfortable hotel with a very professional and helpful stuff. A very nice view from the atelier restaurant(Breakfast). The only negative point is the slope that you have to walk to get to any place (if you like walking). Otherwise you have to take taxi with is found any time during the day.

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.
