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.
We took the tour starting from sultanahmet from where the van collected us took us to the boat area and after a one hour cruise on bosphorus brought us back to sultanahmet area . Whole tour took 3 and a half hour door to door .
May be one of the best locations in İstanbul. Silence hits you as soon as you enter the park. There are two restaurants - nice food and a cafe by the pool with ducks and another cafe among trees serving nice 'gözleme' ...nice walk is surely there for you
I was really looking forward to this museum and was maybe expecting too much, so I got a bit disappointed. Don't get me wrong, the museum is worth seeing and has very specific, unique exhibits - but that's also what was a bit disappointing for me, the collection was not as wide as I thought it would be.
Also known as Ortakoy mosque, this was my favourite of my entire visit. I walked in and instantly you are hit with a sense of peace within the atmosphere. The mosque is not huge but it is built with huge windows and right on the Bosphorus. The huge windows let in so much light and I sat there for quite...
The ciragan palace is very impressive as also the dining room of the Tugra restaurant. the view of the Bosporus is amazing especially in the summer months when the terrace is open. Food is local cuisine, mostly with meat, although there are some dishes with fish. We tasted both. Their signature dish is worth having, lamb cooked in a ceramic...
"Don't bother booking online - BUT well worth the wait"
reviewed 1 week ago by Didem P
Even though we booked online its a first come first serve basis. The wait is long but waiting isn't too bad as they come around with sucuk, there is a bar, and the kitchen and the meat are in front of you so you can see the action + chose your meat. We got there at 7:30pm and we were...
Views were stunning & one should get there before sunset to see t contrasts!
Drinks in the bar before the restaurant opened were good. Restaurant opened at 7.
Extensive food menu as was the wine menu. Food & service was very good.
Expensive night out!

"Beautiful hotel, great location and amazing staff"
reviewed 4 days ago by belindao19
We had a wonderful time staying at the Four Seasons for my husband's birthday. The hotel is stunning and the service was some of the best we have experienced in all of Europe. Can't wait to come back and stay again.
A beautiful hotel overlooking the Bosporous with amazing views on the famous bridge connecting Europe and Asia. The hotel is a real palace loved by all the ottoman sultans with a great history, original floors, marble stairs, chandeliers that make you feel like a royalty. Extremely helpful and friendly staff, speaking English very good. Food is so nice and everything...
Everything, from the moment I stepped out of the car until my final moments at the hotel, was amazing. The staff is incredibly well trained and they anticipated every need. The spa services were simply incredible, and the food at the restaurants is second to none. I loved my stay at the Ritz Carlton Istanbul and I look forward to...
I have really enjoyed my stay in this hotel. It is just a very beautiful hotel - looks like palace. Marble, chandeliers with Crystal.
Very very nice gym and pool area. Rooms are big, bathroom is very comfortable.
I had fresh fruit as a compliment from the hotel.
Also nice area to drink tea and very good restaurants.
