This is by far one of the best hotels I have stayed in. The service is impeccable. I was personally greeted by the Hotel Manager, Christian amongst other members of the Team. I was upgraded to a Suite with breakfast, which I must say is nothing short of wonderful. I have never seen a rack of honey that you cut...

Dear Ricky, It's great to have you here in W Istanbul. Thank you for this flattering review. I'm glad you are enjoying our breakfast buffet that mingles between detox & retox delicacies, providing you a bit of both! W Istanbul talents are often praised for their personal touch. Each & every guest is treated individually because we know different tastes...

In addition to the usual W vibe the hotel benefits from both a buzzy location as well as characterful building. Moreover staff seem to care more than the normal "actor between parts" crew that the chain normally draws.

Dear Robert, Many thanks for your recent stay here at the marvelous W Istanbul. The Akaretler Neighbourhood is a perfect location to get the most from this beautiful city.

Dear Lola, Thank you for your lovely words. I truly appreciate your feedback. The W Lounge has been arranged in the form of a "Living Room" concept and is open from early to late.

I only stayed there for one night after a lay over. I was excited to have a room with a private garden. I wanted to relax and rest. Although the room, bed and amenities were great, it was not what i was looking for. The garden was not very private as you can actually see the other rooms' gardens and...

"My husband and I stayed at the W Istanbul, the hotel was amazing in all aspects, from the modern and adventurous decoration of our room to the buffet breakfast.

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.
