We booked five days with kids over the Christmas holiday 2016. The staff was exceptional and wonderful with our three children. We enjoyed all aspects of the hotel. The rooms were tasteful and spacious, and set up for our family's needs on arrival. The club lounge was perfect. The indoor pool, spa and gym were fantastic. And, the location is...

Great staff and concierge service. The rooms come across as a bit dated now but still have that Rita opulence about it. Great view of the Boisophorus. Only lacking is the single restaurant in the hotel. Not much choice.

Location was amazing we were middle of the city close to the most hip locations. Landscape was amazing mostly during the sunset. You can easily see the Asian side and even though the most known soccer stadium is there, It wasn't too loud. I would definitely stay there when I go back! ps: The spa is amazing!

A Ritz is a Ritz and this is no exception. Location is decent in that you are 10 minute walk from Tramvay. Otherwise, location is quiet but not much to do in vicinity. Only complaint was that the taxi service affiliated with the hotel was GOD AWFUL:(

For the price I paid for, the hotel was fine. However, it does not have any wow factors that are normally expected from a Ritz Carlton hotel. Location is good, rooms are functional but service was nothing memorable.

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.
