We had one night in Istanbul with my wife and sister in law after a month of travelling and wanted Besiktas location so it was close to shopping, such as Istinya Park, Zorlu, Nisantasi & Cevahir but didn't want to spend too much. We saw pictures of this place and thought nice... but pictures as everyone knows when they travel... More

I relied on the reviews and booked for 6 nights. I arrived at the hotel, I wanted to stay in Levent but since it was fully booked, I had to stay the first two nights at Besiktas location at a higher price, had to pay the difference which is fine. So location is almost impossible to find if you are... More

Well this one is hard to review for me. We stayed at chakra for 4 nights, of which one night was in the penthouse suite. We liked some things and didn't like some other things about the appartments, so i have mixed feelings. We booked this appartment based on the reviews here on tripadvisor, so it was somewhat disappointing for... More

We discovered a hidden oasis , away from the hectic environment, yet walking distance to cafes , restaurants and shops by the Bosphorus.

The staff in the hotel are so nice; they restored my faith in humanity. You really can ask them to help you with anything such as booking taxis, ordering/finding specific desserts, etc. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, clean, fancy and flexible design. The rooms also have fully functional kitchen with all the required tools. Regarding location, it is a bit... More

The place is bright, clean, spacious and contemporary. The beds are big and wide and the bathroom is a good size too. Ample storage space. They offer breakfast in your room at a time of your choosing and you can ask for something different every morning. There is someone available to assist you 24hrs too. The staff are the most...

We have just returned back from a 1 week stay in the Chakra Suites. Upon arrival we had met Ozan, (At Reception) and he was immediately very helpful, genuine and also spoke very good English.

My husband and I stayed at Apartman in September for almost one week. If you take a taxi the first time from the airport it can be a little diificult to find it but than you realise that the location is not that complicated. We asked for airport pick-up and drop and they were really ponctual and reliable. Big thank... 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.
