Stayed at the W for a week. I love the location. The hotel is not use the main attractions but in a arty area, very pleasant to walk around and a lot less touristic which makes it an ideal place to relax after a day walking around. The front desk team is good and a special mention has to go... More

the hotel is located in an interesting area ,very close to bosphorus,among beautiful buildings and shoping places. We asked for an upfloor room with view and they gave us a room between ground floor and basement without asking us or sending us some mail to warn us about the availability of the rooms.

Allways when I come to Istanbul this is the place I like to stay. Since the renovation it feels even more like a cozy lounge/club with rooms and friendly staff. Additionally it is not fare from downtown, the best shopping places and one of the best restaurants of Istanbul next doors... and the clubs like Reina is also not far... More

A huge Thank you to the Concierge Team for making our first visit to Istanbul memorable and exceptional. The only drawback, the restaurant was closed to relocate! We will try to come back, as there are many more things to do.
