My partner and I recently spent four nights in Istanbul at the Ritz Carlton. The hotel is centrally located, nicely decorated and well-staffed with terrific employees across the board.

I have traveling to 72 different countries and have stayed at many different hotels, both large and small brands. Ritz-Carlton - by far - the very best service I have experienced! With a beautiful property and rooms with breathtaking views. Making the Ritz-Carlton my single brand of choice was overwhelmingly compelling!!

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.
