One of the best hotel that I have been to! I love the room. Everything is nicely done. Good service, good breakfast, nice view, gym and spa are also excellent! Only thing is that you might need to walk about 15 mins to tram station, or you can cab there.

We stayed here after transferring a booking from 4 seasons Sultanahmet due to my wife's absolute requirement for a pool to do her laps (4 seasons Sultanahmet is highly rated but for the swimming addicts there is no pool). The room is as big as our house, and the amenities are superb. The service is unbelievably good, and to prove...

We stayed here for three nights during our honeymoon and the staff really made it memorable for us.

Staying in Besiktas

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
