I stayed there for 3 nights last week. well... I have mixed feelings about this hotel, the building seems to be a bit old and although there have been some renovations, still it doesn't look as it should for a 5 star hotel e.g. bad finishing in bathroom etc. on the other hand, the amenities in the room are quite...

I have stayed in this hotel 4 times and I have notice the standard of the rooms have dropped. With the incresing building and traffic what used to take 25-30 minutes to and from the airport, on a Sunday it took me 1hr.25mins having said that it was only 45 minutes on a Tuesday midday to get to the airport....

Reviewed 15 November 2012

A very good hotel, helpful but not very friendly staff. The condition of the bathrooms does not correspond to the value of the rooms. Breakfast is good but could add some more variety. My room was at the 8th floor, a corner one, and although smaller, had a very nice view. Very poor Internet access!!!

the hotel features very spacious rooms and is located ideally for business, less for tourism. Breakfast buffet is plenty with hot and cold items. There is a sky bar on the 21st floor with stunning views over Istanbul skyline. Hotel pricing is reasonable for a big city.

To summarize the stay: - Room - quite generous from space, two single beds, comfortable, located on the 18th floor, but very annoying A/C system. The other colleagues having rooms in lower levels, had an issue with the street noise - Bathroom - not the cleanest, towels are grey and black which generate an automatic distrust, I appreciate white towels...

A first experience in Istanbul resulted in a stay at this hotel, which was recommended by a local business colleague. Ideal business hotel but also not too bad for a holiday stay, although some of the tourist attractions are a few miles away. Personally I would say its 4/5 star rating is maybe a little top heavy, but that shouldnt...

The name on the hotel gives you big expectations. Unfortunately they can't live up to that. After two days I wondered what actually was wrong? The feeling was not right about the hotel.

Swimming pool out of order. Sauna out of order. Hamam out of order. Old furniture and really bad food.

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.
