We have visited Istanbul for each of the last three years and have always stayed at the Ritz Carlton. On this occasion we stayed in one of the suites overlooking the Bosphorus, although they are still building Beşiktaş' stadium (the hotel immediately overlooks it); the view was stunning from the twelfth floor. We also subscribed to the 'Club' services. The... More

We stayed here for one night on a 20 hour layover in Istanbul and everything about this hotel was in a word - great.. security high, rooms clean, spa and pool were fantastic, if you are a lap swimmer this is the place to stay in Istanbul, the breakfast buffet, while a bit expensive was fantastic.

Excellent stay at the Ritz. Room, food, service, and spa (try the hammam) were incredible. The hotel is well situated. It is within walking distance from the Bosphorus, restaurants, shops, museums, and public transportation. Highly recommend.

We had a short stay here. The staff are amazing, so polite and efficient. Hotel is beautiful as expected from such a prestigious chain. We were on the 10th floor. Loved the spa facility. Location is a little out of centre but easy taxi ride. Highly recommend and definitely stay here if we visit Istanbul again.

Renovated lobby where the reception desk is now on the same level as the entrance with cheerful welcoming staff makes a big difference (instead of navigating several steps to get to the reception before).

This year we decided to do something different for New Year's Eve and chose Istanbul as our destination. We spent seven nights at the hotel and enjoyed our stay immensely. We arrived late at night and awoke to a beautiful view of the Bosphorus from our room on the 12th floor, which is the club level. The staff went out... More

We upgraded our room. It was large. Plenty of room for two. We paid for the meals in the lounge (not sure what they call it) - was worth the upgrade. Breakfast was very good, lunch was fine, dinner was more of snack but all in all plenty of calories, nice stuff, cheaper than a restaurant and a good view... More

But if you preffer to stay near the best atractions it is not the recommended hotel. In this case, prefer na hotel... 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.
