Stayed here with a large group for a week-long conference-like program; after that, my family (with 2 under age kids) came over for couple more days. The whole experience was just perfect from the beginning to the end. Heard of infamous Istanbul cab driver, we decided to use hotel pick up; it was not cheap but the concierge communicated on...

Great hotel with fantastic staff. The comfort of the rooms was excellent. Turn down service every day. Breakfast was a mix between Europe and the rest if the world. Security at the hotel was great with x-ray of the luggage before entering the lobby.

Overall good experience, but property not that attractive. Very mediocre spa/hammam, not at all what it looks like on the pictures, a let down in a city famous for its baths... rooms are spacious, and service up to Ritz-Carlton highest standards ! Our room was located next to Club level kitchen and every night at midnight cleaning crew vacuuming and... More

We were on the concierge floor and were upgraded to a corner room. Can't say enough about this hotel, both its physical attributes and the staff. Food on the concierge floor was wonderful; we could have just eaten there and never have gone out! In fact our first night there we were so exhausted that we were able to make... More

The experience began at the airport with a slick meet and greet limousine service, courtesy of the hotel. Everything was as it should be - cold towels, water, wifi in the car and service with a smile. Even though the cost was €165 (one way), the convenience of this service was well worth it and as I do with every... More

My husband and I were in Istanbul from Monday July 20 until Thursday, July 23. Chose the Ritz for many reasons: Its security, its location and of course, the quality it involves in staying with you. All our stay was very pleasant. There is only one thing I would point out. I was looking to do a manicure and they... More

We are staying at the Ritz now, the pools and the fitness center are great. The staff is really friendly and knowledgable of the city and their surroundings. The food is fantastic, even the in room service. We love the breakfast set up and the food!! Really good for staying with kids!!

Great location and views of the city. Interiors were older. Did not receive the usual Ritz grand personal welcome or service expected and received at other Ritz. Gym was under renovation and the replacement gym was not accurate. Concierge staff was very helpful.

My girlfriend and I flew into Istanbul for the first time not knowing what to expect. Our trip started off a bit rough because the airline lost our luggage. Anyway the Ritz came to the rescue. Not only was the general service and accommodations excellent. The hotel also tracked down our bags from the airport, calling daily to get updated... More

My wife and 3 month old daughter visited Istanbul for the first time recently for a long weekend away, and this hotel turned out to be a great choice. Typical Ritz Carlton quality finishing made the stay very comfortable, however the real bonus was how helpful and service orientated all the staff were. Travelling with such a young infant is...

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.
