I stayed at this hotel for one evening, my time here was short but very, very enjoyable. The staff could not be friendlier or more helpful, the bed and pillows were amazing - possibly the comfiest bed I have ever slept on. The shower cubicle was huge, bigger than most bathrooms. If you're looking for a bit of luxury in... More

Hotel was great. Conveniently located (although could be closer to the tram line) the place was beautiful. Rooms were nice and spacious and the staff was very friendly. Décor was a bit trendy for my liking. Seemed to remind me of a night club... but then again, that is the W brand. Great hotel overall.

Very typical W hotel with the special lounge atmosphere day and night, clubbers are very welcome ! Large rooms with comfortable beds, large desk efficient for business work, and spacious bathroom. Fully equiped fitness center. Some maintenance required in the room (lamps to fix), which is always annoying. It feels like if the hotel management would expect clients to do... More

The W Istanbul was a fantastic experience. I've been to many Ws in the US and many SPG properties worldwide and the W Istanbul was by far my favorite W hotel and one of my favorite overall SPG properties. The hotel is not located within the old city where all the tourist sites are (Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Tokapi Palace,... More

The hotel is in a lovely neighborhood away from the tourist madness but only a 10 minute walk from the tram that takes you to sultanameht (tourist area with the main sites). We stayed in a suite which had a great view, was very well decorated, clean, comfortable with great amenities. Because it was our honeymoon they brought us complimentary... More

If you are planning a trip to Istanbul, you probably already know that it is a difficult decision whether to stay in the old town closest to the historical sites, or the more modern side, nearer the more luxurious hotels,trendy restaurants and modern streets.
