The hotel was very clean and the value of money was great as well. The location is not bad, the view at the pasphores is amazing, which gives a nice feeling while having the breakfast in the morning. Thanks

Just stayed one night, convenient to Vodafone arena next door. The views out to the Bosphorus were impressive. Excellent food at the on-site restaurants and very helpful and friendly staff. Security was obvious which was reassuring.

Enjoyed my short stay here. The concierge took care of car service to and from Istanbul. I highly recommend. The rooms are spacious and while not in Aya sofia area, short trip. Taksim square is also nearby. From a security standpoint definitely liked this hotel.

Location is great, view from the room (full view to busphore) is excellent, value is great. Key area to improve is to make the decoration more modern rather than classic and make the bathroom design more exciting than traditional

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.
