It is an average hotel for business trips.The hotel is located in Besiktas,where nothing to see except Bosphorus,but the metro station is close.If you are coming to see the Old City of Istanbul,this is not place to stay at all.Don't waist your time and money on traffic and public transport,just get a hotel in the Old City and enjoy streets...

There was nothing terribly wrong with this hotel, however I felt sorry for the people who came there for their holidays.. Lets start from the beginning.. Hotel is located in Besiktas, if you wanna walk its like 20 minutes and you will be near Bosphorus. Around the hotel are two small markets and a restaurant (which is quiet good). When...

Reviewed 14 March 2017

The Renaissance advertises as a five-star hotel, justified by its impressive height, facilities and location, but would find it hard to live up to that rating on other grounds. This is clearly a hotel for business vistors, with slick-check-in, English-speaking staff and rooms that are equipped to plug-in every conceivable electronic device. However, the hotel also seems to perform an...

We stayed here only one night as a result of a missed connection at the Istanbul airport but loved every minute of our stay. Modern rooms and the downstairs restaurant has the best hotel breakfast I have ever had! Don't miss it if you stay here.

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.
