There's not much to say about this "hotel". Basicaly the "hotel" for backpackers, who don't expect much from the accomodation - related to cleanliness, quietness and hospitality. We travelled as a group of friends ( few couples included ). Eventhough our names were recorded as first, we got the room as last, which would be fine, unless the "manager" realised,... More

To be honest the hotel seems cute ...but I wouldn't know for sure because they send me to sleep in some place which by the way was terrible! So I booked for the Bridge Hotel, I slept in another building about 10 minutes walking distance, had breakfast in another building (somewhere in the middle) and payed in The Bridge Hotel.... More

It was literally the worst hotel I have ever slept. I do not recommend this to anyone! When we arrived they did not want our passports and required us to pay in cash, of course, we did not get confirmation of payment (at this point we were too tired to notice this, we only wanted to go to sleep). Then... More

This is the place where I was severely cheated, I do not recommend this to anyone. We came to this hotel by mistake, as I was so tired I did not notice any name of the place, but I shown them my reservation comfirmation. Guy at reception haven't told me anything, that this is not the place you reserved. Instead,... More

All of our negative experiences has been described in earlier posts. Dirty rooms, horrible buildings When arrived, the receptionist required us to pay the full payment in cash up front. Then she walked us to another disgusting building few blocks away. "Room", which was actually a basement of a flat apartment, was smelling so unbelievably bad. Furniture was partly broken... More

The hotel staff were friendly and accommodating. They are not good at responding to emails, I think because of the language barrier. It surprised me how many Turkish people do not speak English but oh well I was in a foreign country. The price was right, it was only $50 USD to stay at a quiet, clean hotel. I think... More

Going by the pictures and description of a boutique it looked good and the price was reasonable but in reality it was nothing like described, we wernt greeted when we arrived my name was just bellowed out from a withered troll like man hunched over a battered desk who then shoved a piece off paper in front off me and...

This is by far the worst hotel I've stayed in for the last 10 years or so. First, the location: The pictures depict this hotel to have a view of the Bosporus, as well as the accompanying text. Well, I'm sure one or two of their rooms do, however, the hotel is comprised of several small buildings that are spread... More

Me and my husband came to Istanbul for a wedding of our friends and booked this hotel in May, the location was good for us and the reviews we read at that time were fine. We arrived, around 3 p.m. were told to wait for the rooms to be ready more than half an hour. Then we went to the... More

Staying in Besiktas

Neighborhood 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 neighborhood 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.
