You can't go wrong here, the location is very good with some wonderful views and you are right next to a small tourist area with lots of shops, cafes, restaurants and bars. You are also almost literally at the foot of the bridge over the Bosphorous. The rooms are nice, clean and warm and service is very polite and attentive.... More

Very good hotel with "not big but enough sized" modern rooms, but if you get a standart room on street side the noise of cars and vallets can be annoying.Superior rooms look to other side, and much less noise accompanied with a nice view..Reception,staff is helpful.Lobby bar has an amazing view.Very attractive location,with top restaurants and bars around, so noise...

Arrived late, person who did check-in was disengaged and I got a first floor room above the entrance driveway so enjoyed the sound of cars coming and going late into the night. Was told there was nothing else for me. So really not the experience I expected, even though of course the views from the common areas are great.

The Radisson Blue has an excellent location, right in the middle of old town and on the Bosporus. You can walk out of the hotel and are in the middle of good restaurants, shopping and local culture. The staff in the hotel was very friendly, the rooms are clean, and mine had a balcony overlooking the Bosphorus and Asia, very... More

One of the best hotels i have stayed in and the breakfast is just awesome, the restaurants are very cheap and classy at the same time. The hotel staff is very co-operative and the service is also very good. situated at the heart of the town it help commute to other places very easy.

Checked in with my family to this hotel and barely had space to move in the room. The hotel management are inept at finding solutions to problems.

The hotel is modern and comfortable - large room, beautiful view of the Bosphorus, great breakfast buffet, many restaurants a walk away. But this is not a good hotel for first time visitors to Istanbul as it is quite far from the old part of town where attractions are. Love everything else about it.

Organized a small group in the hotel for 20 people with meetings. Great facilities in the middle of the city and very helpfull staff, to name some Berkay and from the Front Desk, Yalcin from Banquet. Great work guys, thanks again... Be sure to go out to the terrace of the main restaurant for the excellent view.

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.
