We stayed at the W Istanbul in July for a week with my family and had a truly wonderful experience. The hotel is located in Beshiktash area of Istanbul, close walk to Galata Tower and across the street from Dolmabahche Palace. It is also a very short walk to Bosphorus. there are a lot of cafes and small restaurants around... More

First, W Hotels are typically not my style- I typically prefer a more classic style with less modern. That being said, the W in Istanbul is lovely. Yes, the lobby is a bit more modern/club-ish than ideal for me, but it is really nice nonetheless and not a reason to avoid the hotel. It does not, however, have the club... More

We stayed a weekend in the W Istanbul and had a pleasant stay. It's located in the little of besiktas near the harbor. Your are easily in the old city with the tram, ferry or taxi. Take a breakfast in the brasserie beside the hotel, it's perfect.

We arrive to hotel by early afternoon when staff was busy and they welcomed us with a class profession at reception offering drinks and doing our c/in within seconds. We were lucky to be upgraded free as it was available at their deluxe rooms and we were even lucky to inspect their Penthouse-what a room for multi purposes. Breakfast was... More

The W Istanbul is a great hotel, slightly out of the city centre in a nice part of town. The W has good rooms with many having their own mini garden or balcony terrace. Good service and the reception/concierge staff gave us a lot of tips and recommendations. This has more character than some of the other big USA brand... More

The Hotel was clean and comfortable. The food was good and the service was excellent. The bed was very comfortable and I slept well, but the Wifi was quite slow. Great location as you are beside the Bosphorus and the Ferry's, also there are plenty of nice places to eat around you. Overall a very pleasant stay in a nice... More

I've been leaning away from W hotels as they are often dark and too clubby for me. But this has a great vibe with a modern take on Turkish design. The breakfast is wonderful and the dinners are good too. The restaurant spills onto the street which makes a late night dinner fun. (We found that in Turkey, the wine... More

We visited W Istanbul recently for a 2 night stay in a 'wonderful room'. The room was beautifully designed and met our needs as 2 thirty-something girls who intended to spend more time sampling the local night life than in the room. Saying that, the design of the basic room was spacious with the smart fold-out bathroom design, good music... More

My husband and I spent four nights here on our honeymoon. The hotel is very trendy and the rooms are very dark feeling. The manager upgraded our room upon arrival, however, we did not take the upgrade as it looked into the gym. We went back to the room we originally booked. The hotel is in a good location, but...
