Easy walk to the water, surrounded by great restaurants, helpful and friendly staff/concierge and a nice gym (for a hotel). Would definitely recommend. Only complaint was speaking to concierge on phone was difficult - need to have someone check out their phone system! Wifi was very fast for Europe. Overall a great stay

I stayed at the w in Istanbul after 3 weeks in Greece and on my way back home. The welcome was very warm and the front desk helpful in directions, but the rest of the hotels was not impressive. The room was large, but the furnishings were looking tired and it was not the cleanest. The room service was atrocious,... More

Stayed there last January. Good location, average breakfast. The most helpful ever concierge!!! Annoyed by the constant door knocking from the housekeeping staff without real reason. Could be a tip seeking procedure!!!

We stayed three nights at the W Istanbul, and before we left the W Insider mentioned he thought of me not as a guest, but an old friend visiting from out of town. I couldn't agree more with the sentiment, and it perfectly summarizes our stay. The staff took care of our every need and made sure we had the... More

I stayed 4 nights at the W Istanbul on my recent Turkey vacation. The hotel is located off the tourist hotspots. The location is fine as it is in a nice trendy part of town and close to public transport like trams and ferries. Kabatas is the station for both the tram and ferry. The staff are all very helpful...

This was our first time to Istanbul and we were only staying a few days, so we were uncertain as to whether the W was going to be in a good location. If you also are concerned about location and are thinking of staying at the W Istanbul- go ahead and book your hotel. Walking to the nearest train station... More

It is the second time I slept there and the second time they charge me for services I didn't order/use. Last year it was pay TV (sorry guys, but if I want to watch "adults TV", I go directly on xtube. At least it's free!). Today time it was some kind of lounge service! So, look at your bill carefully... More
