My husband and I have stayed at Swissotel the Bosphorus a few times over the past years, including our latest stay in February of 2017. Each stay at this wonderful hotel has been special. The service is impecable, the views are marvelous (their lobby restaurant alone, which overlooks the Bosphorus is worth a visit) and rooms are comfortable and specious....

I didn't expect the hotel to be this good; the room which was downstairs from lobby was amazingly big and close to the gym which is fully equipped, great to use after our conference dinner. The Swissotel chain has always been impressive in their toiletries and room size, especially comparing to my last stay in Swissotel London. The views from...

I spent 2 pleasant nights at Swissotel where I found a maximum of comfort, service, functionality. I also enjoyed its scenic view on the Bosphorus, beautiful garden, central location, lively atmosphere of the reception lounge, copious breakfast, modern equipment, traditional decor ... In such a large hotel I could feel sometimes a little lost.

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.
