The knock on the Ritz is "that it's out of the way." Although up the hill from the Ciragan Palace, it's location allows you spectacular views of the Golden Horn from nearly every room, and the peace and quiet away from all of the more popular tourist places. So frankly, I find it's location to be a great plus...and so...

I say this about the location knowing it's just up the hill from the stadium and the Ciragan Palace...still, having stayed at the Four Seasons Sultanhamet and Bosphorus where you're right in the thick of things, this Ritz feels a bit out of the way. That being said, staff are over-the-top accommodating, the breakfast buffet is decadent, and the rooms...

The Ritz is among the best hotels I've stayed at in a long time. The bathroom was extremely cozy and grand. The room was very nicely sized and the bed was very comfortable. They gave us turn down service without asking. The location is good with an amazing view, we caught a sunrise just over the Asian mountains one day....

Beautiful hotel, excellent service and a great location very close to Taksim square and the metro. The rooms are aging but still in a good shape. The bathrooms are a beautiful mix of white marble and Turkish tiles. The restaurant on the first floor has amazing views of the Bosphorous. The hotel might want to update the rooms in the...

Was in Istanbul with work a conference. Istanbul is a beautiful and friendly city, but what makes the Ritz Carlton superb beyond the obvious luxury of the hotel is the amazing staff.

You get what you would expect from this chain at this Istanbul hotel. Very nice rooms, and restaurants - great central location with great views. Very attentive staff. Not the cheapest place by any stretch of the imagination but very Ritz-Carlton.

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.
