My wife and I had a wonderful weekend in Istanbul. We were in town for a wedding and somewhat limited with our free time. As we did not want to come to Istanbul and miss seeing the main historic sites we asked the concierge (Cem) to help us out by organizing for us an airport pick-up and a half day private tour of the city. Everything worked perfectly. The hotel organized a nice Mercedes to pick us up, take us to the old town where we met a guide while the car continued on with our luggae to the W hotel. The guide was incredible! He teaches history at the local university and has been a guide for the past 20+ years. Besides being very knowledgeable he was also very friendly (he has shown around the likes of Bill Clinton, etc...).
The W hotel itself is in a beautifully restored historic building, which combined with the W design makes for a great contrast. The rooms are as you would expect from a W hotel - modern, very clean and design focused, whcih is what my wife and I like. Unlike some other W hotel the rooms are generously proportioned.
The staff was incredibly helpful throughout our stay, organizing taxis, making sure we arrived at the wedding on time, etc. Given our social obligations we did not have a chance to sample the restaurant or spend time at the bar but it appeared like the hotel has a happening bar scene.
We would definitely stay there again and can highly recommend the hotel
