Enjoyed the stay entirely. Nice comfortable rooms and lovely food. Location is central to the city and views are awesome. Highly recommended to everyone travelling to Istanbul. Staff was very courteous and helpful too. Best part is that they provided very good Indian food (including the Jain food) along with the International and Turkish cuisine.

Very comfortable. Relatively new hotel. Not many restaurants close by, but bar and restaurant in hotel good. Views from the cocktail bar are excellent. Staff all very helpful. Not central, it taxis are cheap. Look out for unscrupulous taxi drivers. Take a photo of their licence plate in the car to avoid being ripped off.

It served as a great location for our business meetings part. While still close enough to explore the city to do the sightseeing. A killing feature is the rooftop bar and restaurant on the sunset.

Dear Guest, We appreciate the time you have taken to review your recent stay. Unfortunately the traffic jam can be unbearable in Istanbul so the Gayrettepe Subway Station which is only around 6 minutes walking distance away from our hotel is a great option in order to avoid the rush hours. For instance; from Gayrettepe Subway to Taksim takes only...

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.
