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

We were surprised by the size of the tight size of the "Marvellous" room and the fact that there was no swimming pool - my bad, I expected a W to have at least a plunge pool to cool off in the hot Turkish summer. Concierge was often absent and more than once were we told to "call back in... More

I'm a Starwood Platinum and have stayed in more than 8 W hotels across the world - W Istanbul was definitely not upto the service levels as compared to other Starwood properties. 1.

The thing about W is it's very trendy. Pink lights in the hallways, bi red chairs in the bar. The people at the front desk were very friendly and accommodating.

We are regulars with Starwood and W hotels around the world so it was an easy pick to go with W Istanbul.

Trendy hotel in a nice Istanbul area, close to Bosporus and walking distance to Nisantasi shopping area. The decoration was modern with local oriental touch and the lighting was sentimental, although a bit dark for my taste. Sometimes I thought I was in a night club, rather than a hotel. Room was beautiful, not as big as in other W... More

Lived to the W standard. I regret staying elsewhere in Istanbul. Easy access to places around: restaurants, shops, high end shops, and sightseeings. The only down thing was breakfast, it was not the best. Great variety of rooms giving you nice choices

W Istanbul is easily one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. Like boutique hotels W has its own charm. Some love it and some find the decor a little strange. I love it.

Stayed at the W hotel for just one night as a stopover to Dalaman. It is indeed ideally located if you are planning to discover Istanbul's tourist attractions and don't want to spend your day in a taxi (traffic is still pretty horrendous to get to the hotel - took us more than hour hour from Ataturk airport).
