The hotel is not fully refurbished, so fair enough maybe I shouldnt be too harsh on the bfast buffet but it was kind of poor and very little choice was offered. I stayed in a superior room I think they called it MEGA room, and funny enough, it didnt have a garden area like the normal rooms!! but it was...

This hotel is located in a picturesque area and very near the Bosphorus restaurants. Taxis in Istanbul are reasonable and it should cost about 10 Lira to get to Taksim (4 euros). The hotel may recommend a taxi but insist that they turn on the meter because on our first day we asked them to negotiate a rate to Taksim...

We had an overnight stay while passing through Istanbul. Very beautiful boutique hotel design and friendly service.

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.
