Neighbourhood
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.

The rooms are a little tired, but the comfort is guaranteed. Great public spaces and good service. The SPA is large and welcoming, but needs renovations. Excellent breakfast. The concierge is team is very professional. The outside pool is heated.

We were staying at Four Seasons and were recommanded by the concierge to have a coffee at the Kempinski. The experience started at the entrance gate. We were asked in a rude way: what do you do here? What do you want?. Not very 5 star.... When we got in, we are asked the same

Yes. A few minutes walk to the ferries. Ask at the hotel. I highly reccomend it

I recommend you email and ask the hotel. But I am quite sure you can either buy a day spa pass. Or maybe book a spa treatment and the pools usage would be included in it.
