Orkatoy Princess hotel has a great room, very cozy, spacious and confortable. Breakfast wasn't good, I thought there was just typical food. Location was good but it's not the best for those who are visiting the city as tourists. I was in a business trip and the location was good for me.

I stayed a week in Princess. The restaurant works as a buffet, the food is amazing and a lot :) Although the stuff doesn't speak really good English they were nice. As I remember they cleaned everyday and changed sheets and towels as well. My room was good, the only issue is people smoke inside and I could smell even... More

The Hotel, isn't 5 stars worhty, but the overall stay was indeed very nice. We had a minor issue with the fitness room, it took three different people to actually get the opening hours. The table cloths in the breakfast room was stained from other guets. It was duable though. The rooms were nice and big and we had a... More

The hotel is well located close to the esplannade in the Besiktas area. The hotel is in dire need of a revamp. The walls are so thin, you quickly become familiar with the bowel movements of your neighboring guests. The lobby has a very strong smell of furniture polish that is very overwhelming. The service is okay, the team tries... More

I stayed in this hotel last year. It was not a very nice experience. From the service quality to breakfast, everything was so poor that it really got me shocked. I was expecting a better quality to be honest. The only good thing is the location. Even the mini bar (empty) was not working in the room. Why claiming that... More

The location is on the waterfront of ortakoy, which is at walking distance from the nice restaurants at the sea shore. With a view on the bridge that links asia & europe. You can find good turkish restaurants around the hotel. There is no metro tram or similar public transportation, to get there you have to take a taxi, traffic... More

We were staying at this hotel just a couple of weeks ago. We stayed a little more than a week in total towards the end of our trip to Turkey. It was recommended to us by a family friend. The hotel is in a good location right in the middle of Ortakoy, in the middle of all the action. However,... More

The hotel staff were nice enough to tell us weddings are on at the poolside and that music will be played until 12:30 am. We didn't mind the music. You can ask for a room away from the poolside. However, we asked for a queen sized bed and we received 2 single beds. Unfortunately, they had no queen beds available... 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.
