This is by far one of the best hotels I have stayed in. The service is impeccable. I was personally greeted by the Hotel Manager, Christian amongst other members of the Team. I was upgraded to a Suite with breakfast, which I must say is nothing short of wonderful. I have never seen a rack of honey that you cut...

In addition to the usual W vibe the hotel benefits from both a buzzy location as well as characterful building. Moreover staff seem to care more than the normal "actor between parts" crew that the chain normally draws.

Unfortunately I didn't get the chance to enjoy the shows but I could hear the lovely jazz music show and also latina singers there while passing by and I can't tell you how much I loved it cause it wasn't dead...

That's why it's alive every morning and every night. Mornings are often peaceful and relaxed but come night, the W Lounge ignites with the vocals of...

This is the second time that I have stayed at the W Instanbul and I like even more the second time around, which is saying something!. The staff are friendly, attentive and efficient. The rooms are modern and stylish, with a great soft bed and excellent, powerful shower. The hotel is located in an upmarket area, close to all the...

Dear Niel, Good to have had you back and great to hear you enjoyed your stay the second time around.

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.
