I almost always avoid hotel restaurants when away on business - expensive and not all that great - but the W lounge is a welcome exception.
Sort of forced here on my first night, I was very surprised by the quality of the food. I...More
The rating would actually be 3.5 rather than 4 if I had the option to choose that one. The food is good, the service is better than the food but as usual in Istanbul, the bartender does not know how to make cocktails. When you...More
I was disappointed by my outing at W bar on a Saturday night.
The bartender wasn't able to prepare a decent Moscow Mule cocktail. Ginger was replaced by lemon !
This place is for the young Turkish elite that somehow didn't look like having fun...More

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.
