We just spend again some days in Istanbul, the four days at the Swissotel were again great. This hotel offers the perfect balance between being centrally located and still offering a heaven of calm and relaxation. The renovated rooms in the East Tower are just great, big, well thought and modern with all facilities. The roof bar Gaja is extraordinary... More

I'm a fan of this hotel. Location is superb, at a walking distance to Nisantesi, where you can find almost anything you want in terms of shopping and eating. The staff really goes the extra mile to serve you. The roof top restaurant offers one of the most beautiful views of the Bosphorus. Excelent value.

Exquisite hotel with amazing facilities. Immaculate rooms and decor. The ambience was fantastic and the sky bar as out of this world. The entire hotel smelt of pomegranates. The best was the spa facilities which were better than any i have ever experienced

Very nice, first class business hotel with friendly folks and a great breakfast buffet. Restaurant is also pretty good with a nice terrace. The business meeting facilities are great and effective. Very effective for meetings as you might not feel like getting stuck in traffic in beautiful Istanbul. It is quite expensive and has been for the last years but... More

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.
