Many thanks to the staff at the W Istanbul. I left my IPAD in my room, and was not even aware until I heard from the staff at the W that day. They secured it for me, and by several e-mails arranged to have it shipped FEDEX to my home in California. Their attention to detail, professionalism and caring ensured...

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.

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.
