The Renaissance in Polat is a beautiful hotel, the staff is helpful, breakfast buffet is terrific with many assorted selections. We had dinner and drinks on the top floor of the hotel. The food and view of the city and Bosporus was amazing. The kids enjoyed the kiddie pool. We use the club lounge every night and practically had the...

I stayed at this hotel as part of an international education conference in March . Our welcome at check-in was warm and efficient. Everything about my stay here was positive. The staff were friendly. The food was varied, tasty, and well-presented. That being said, food and drink was, as should be expected, rather over-priced and there are several other dining...

I stayed at the Renaissance Polat Bosphorus Hotel for five nights to attend a conference and once I learned to remember the lengthy name so I could tell a taxi driver where to go, it was a fantastic experience. The hotel is located in Basiktas, not far from Taksim. Although this location might seem a bit far from Sultanahmet, it...

Staying at this hotel was indeed a "Turkish delight" and a honor, as everything during my stay was perfect: the hotel room design and amenities & the view from the room, the very friendly staff, the lobby for relaxing and reading, the breakfast and dinner served in the hotel's restaurant, but the best part was the drink on the rooftop...

Functional hotel that covers most aspects adequately. In terms of location, not quite convenient if you are using the subway. I would recommend cabbing to the nearby Zorlu Centre for some upscale shopping experience! Facilities are pretty standard, though had a bad experience with one of the lounge staff questioning me with an accusatory tone whether I had access. Still,...

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.
