Quite large, well maintained and professional hotel. Room was spacious, with view to Bosporus and Dolmabache palace. It took me a while to figure out how to turn off all the lights, but I managed it eventually. Bed was spacious and sleeping peaceful. Room keeping is unobtrusive and efficient. Also other staff was helpful and friendly. It took us a...

Had stayed in Swissôtel, the Bosphorus in June 2016 for a family vacation for a week. The room overlooking the sea of marmara had a beautiful view of the Bosphorus bridge which was so very soothing especially in the mornings. Outside food is not allowed at all in the hotel and he rules are quite strict for that. The staff...

I just arrived I booked Bosphorus view, they gave me part view to Bosphorus, when I spoke with the receptionist with black suit he spoke rude way on phone. Be careful when you booked Bosphorus view lost money.

I spent 3 nights in this newly renovated hotel . I liked most the location where it's on a hill facing the Bosphorus. Also it's in central location and not far from a lot of Istanbul's attractions. Service were excellent and rooms were average to oversized with nice few features. The Lobby has a very high ceiling facing the Bosphorus...

This hotel is very nice and clean. It is definitely 5 stars and has a beautiful view of the bhosporus river. It is a bit expensive but if you want a luxury hotel then this is it. Only con is that it is for from old Istanbul and taxis are expensive as there is always a lot of traffic

I was lucky enough to have a suite on the 8th Floor of one of the blocks in the Swissotel. My room had an amazing view that overlooked the Bosphorus River. I had a decent size kitchen (even though I didn't use it) The bed was super comfy, and the shower was exceptional. The large shower head poured down with...

We arrived at the hotel yesterday. During booking process I got a bit upset with the hotel on the airport transfer rates. It certainly upset the staff as they remembered that during checking in. I must say that after that all got just better and better. The 2 bedroom apartment is lovely and well equiped. The service is amazing. Breakfast,...

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.
