It is an unique hotel in one of the best locations of the bosphorus... It also has one of the best SPA in Istanbul… Love the restaurant in summer time… The decoration tried to expose the ottoman style… They have limited number of rooms… Great option for weekend runaways...

The hotel is a former small palace on the Bosphorus, renovated with excellent taste. It has two floors, and all the suites (i believe 11 of them) are on the upper floor. Each suite is decorated differently. They are all very large, specially for european standards. We stayed in the two of the smallest suites, named Haime Hatun and Nilufer... More

Amazing views and setting. Very iconic and legendary hotel but service and experience could be better. Especially with the reputation it has. The mannequin in the lobby is a bit creepy too. Location cannot be beat and being that close to the waters edge is memorable indeed.

Hotel is places near sea. Its a mansion which is decorated with ottoman culture. Foods are perfect. Staff are kind. I was here for work related purposes, but its enough to see the luxury. You have a option to come by your yatch. There is enough parking place.

The restaurant has a splendid view of the Bosphorus. The cuisine is somehow a mix between international and turkish. The lunch was composed of vegetable appetizers (I rate average) fish (good) and mixed turkish desserts (average-good).Excellent service, food average.

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.

“All rooms are good - while the less expensive rooms face the front of the property, they are perfectly adequate as all are suites with a staircase up to the bedroom and bath area and each is individually decorated and appointed, which is a nice departure from the everything the same rooms at so many properties.”
