Neighborhood
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.

It is impossible not to fall in love with this hotel at first sight. The rooms are great, the spa area, amazing, the restaurants with a Bosphorus view, excellent. But I was most impressed by all the services in the hotel area. Lovely!

The first sign of an unforgettable hotel experience was a welcome email which I received one day after booking. We were offered a room upgrade and an airport transfer so I booked the airport transfer with the BMW 7 Series. I can recommend it to every guest! From the moment we
