Excellent hotel! Rooms were well equipped to a high standard. Restaurant had a diverse selection on the menu of both American and Turkish cuisine. We really enjoyed having access to the lounge where snack and deserts were served. Staff was very helpful in giving directions.

I was here on business, so didn't spend a lot of time in the hotel. The rooms were pleasant and clean. The service was okay. The breakfast area was somewhat utilitarian, but the food was fine. All in all a reasonable hotel with great views of the city from the bar on the upper floors.

Very nice hotel for the business travelers. A little far from the old city for tourist travelers. Not close to the tram stop. Had very nice and accessible room on 1st floor and the roof lounge offers a good view of the city and Sea.

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.
