Me and my brother had a very comfortable stay at the W Istanbul. When we arrived at the hotel at 9 am, the reception desk already had a room available for us! The concierge was very helpful, and Ezgi (whenever whatever agent)made our stay by giving very good recommendations and adding personal but professional service. The hotel is located in... More

As usual the W is a perfect hotel for me. It has amazing design and rooms. the only one thing is that is probably a 20 minute taxi (with trafffic) ride to the centre. There are nice places to eat and shopping near by. I spent 3 nights and would recommend staying here.

We just visited the W Istanbul for 5 nights. I picked the W based my preferences for Starwood being Platinum as well as wanting a U.S. based chain in Istanbul as it was my first visit to Turkey. I have stayed at many W’s across the U.S. and typically find them great properties. I had reserved a Marvelous Suite for... More

Overall, the experience at the W Hotel was fine. It didn't blow me away. Pro's: -Service was excellent. 5 Stars. When we arrived into the port in Istanbul, it was chaos with several boats arriving at the same time, not to mention a complete downpour. We were waiting in the pouring rain for almost an hour before I decided to... More

Generally had a very happy visit to W Istanbul with my girlfriend in Jul '14. Several notes: - Facilities / Hotel: The rooms are really lovely. Well designed and spacious, especially for Istanbul. The "magnificent" rooms have cabanas which are a huge plus. Hallways are a little rock-and-roll and trippy - not a bad thing. Beds are great, showers are... More
