Located in a controversially built skyscraper just behind Dolmabahce Palace, although Ritz-Carlton Istanbul occupies the lower half of the building, it still has wonderful views over Bosphorus. It was desperate to not have an upgrade although there was availability. The Bosphorus view room was large with nice views despite it was in a lower floor. I think in a Ritz-Carlton...

Good value for money due to current exchange rates. Needs some upgrading, feeling a little tired in places. Ambiance lacking a little due to low occupancy rates and no live entertainment. Good views of the Bosporus from the bar and restaurant.

Beautiful hotel overlooking the Bosphorus and close to Istanbul's key tourist attractions. The service is courteous and warm, spa is wonderful, and breakfast spread decent. The terrace offers panoramic views and a cool, laid back lounge for hookah and drinks. The only negative was the relatively small room size but interiors were spic and span.

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.
