Comfortable rooms, the bosphorous views are great, decent very clean bathrooms, with lots of toiletries including a plaza eau de cologne. Breakfast is fresh, well and pleasantly served and a good variety. The rooftob italian restaurant is tasty fresh food... More

After a very long flight, I checked into this very fine establishment early in the morning. Normally, one expects to be delayed on the check in process as rooms may not yet be available so early in the morning. But not the Plaza! There was absolutely no problem and within three minutes of the check in process, I was in... More

Good breakfast, Complete gym, Super clean rooms and friendly staff. Indoor pool was a little bit cold for this season. Unfortunately Turkish bath was closed and when I asked spa manager she said you can use it yourself and there's nobody to wash you!

The hotel's slightly old but it's well maintained and the importantly well located. The staff in the restaurant seemed a little uptight and grudgingly served you when you called. Reception staff were nice and gave me a room much earlier than check in time. Rooms are nice, not too big but not Japanese small either. WiFi is good throughout the... More

Classified as 5 stars but I would rate 4 stars. Nice large rooms, good bed, well equipped minibar, bathroom with extra mirror for shaving, low water pressure. Good breakfast with fresh juice, hot milk, good choice of different food. Friendly service like in most Turkish hotels. Restaurant and shops plus hairdresser on base floor. But the special touch for 5... 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.
