Long weekend spent at the Bosphorous Swissotel, simply fantastic. Maximum relax. Facilities and restaurant at the top. Bosphorous view uncomparable. The Spa is amazing. The only remark is that men and women have separate Spa area. That's life... The location is good. Dolmabahçe Palace is few steps away and the Nisantasi shop area is just few minutes away. Just perfect.

I have stayed in this hotel for 2 nights and I loved the view and facilities! The location is also great, both for business and shopping. The rooms are large and clean and I've enjoyed the pillow menu.

Great room design, perfect service, superb view, excellent breakfast delivered to my room... I felt spoiled. It is an expensive hotel, of course, but it offers quite an experience for that price. Definitely worth it!

The view and location of the Swiss is excellent. Great views over the Bosporus. But the place looks old now, tried and ready for a major make over. Just look at the displays of luxury goods. Terrible. I would sell the property to one of the global chains and do a year timeout. Waste of such a great location to...

Wonderful place to stay, friendly staff, clean rooms, amazing views. The only problem is that the location makes difficult to reach the tram station, it would have been great if they open a door at the lower levels to reach the street level or have a bus service to the street level.

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.
