This was my second stay at the W- Istanbul in less than a month. This boutique hotel has a cozy feel to it, but what made my stay exceptionally pleasant was the warm and genuine service extended by the hotel's staff from the time that Hussein the receptionist checked me in until I was seen off by Turgay, the always...

Amazing Staff, very helpful and attentive to detail, they were super helpful during our stay in the last few days. free smart phone with unlimited data and local calls is one of the best features a hotel has. The food options are a bit limited for breakfast however they are super tasty

We had only two nights here because we were leaving on a Princess cruise for Cvitivecchia(Rome). I read some reviews that said this was a noisy place but we were on the first floor(actually 2nd since the bar/restaurant is on the ground level) and did not have any interuptions during the evening or night. The shower and bathroom were amazing,...

Let me start w the staff- "Matt" at the front desk was fantastic. He was so helpful and no request was not completed to my satisfaction. If you need advice for anything- "CEM" is your guy. He's at the Concierge's desk. Of ALL the travels I've ever done- he is second to none. He actually walked me to a barber...

It's a W, more reasonably priced than most Ws. Quick check in, bags delivered to the room quickly. A celebratory cheesecake to the upgraded room. Definitely a nice place to celebrate an engagement getaway. Decent breakfasts (for Istanbul) but good fresh omelets and COFFEE. My only wish... the rooms had coffeemakers!

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.
