The team at Swissotel, Istanbul make a business traveler feel at home. I travel to his beautiful hotel, overlooking the Bospherous on a regular basis. The food, supervised by Levent and his team, is prime. Then there is Simla at the Chalet. Unfortunately only open during the winter months, the restaurant offers authentic Swiss cuisine. Simla, with her charm and... More

The lobby is spacious and beautiful. I booked a corner room. It was clean, modern and of good size with a spectacular... More

This is 2nd time staying in Swissotel. Very briefly this hotel has technically all things we need for loving Istanbul more. The hotel is very clean, with very polite and friendly staff. The rooms and the bathrooms are beautifully and smartly designed . We were surprised by receiving cake and champagne as this was our honeymoon. Very sweet and lovely... More

Arrived to the hotel early (way before check-in time) - we had a garden room booked but no rooms were ready so the staff offered to place us in a smaller sea view room - lovely and modern rooms - breakfast is spot on! Good location and friendly staff! - will definitely stay again.

Staying in Besiktas

Neighborhood Profile
Besiktas
In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighborhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.
