Away from the tourist crowd and situated along the Bosphorus in the Kuruesme area of Istanbul, Les Ottomans is the perfect choice if one is looking for exclusivity and privacy. With only 10 suites, service is impeccable with a butler to meet all your requests! All rooms are decorated in Ottoman style with attention to every detail. Most suites are... More

Place is very good but is terms of value there are better places in Istanbul. Restaurant "samdan" is also good but after 22:00 smoking is allowed around the bar. This is not good for non-smokers. Btw meals are not cheap and price/quality ratio there are lots of better places.

Regarding the evaluation of value, we try to eliminate any misconceptions by publishing our menu and prices on our website for any interested party to view.

With only 10 suites, this is the most exclusive and elegant property in Istanbul. The staff anticipates all your needs and is extremely helpful at arranging everything, from car and guide to tour the city, to a yacht for an afternoon ride up the Bosphorus. The suites are all large and well appointed, and the Hermes bath products are a... More

We stayed at the Les Ottoman courtesy thanks to the World Travel Awards in 2012. I can say this is one of the best boutique hotels I have stayed in.

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.
