We stayed 4 nights at this kempinski. All we can say that service was beyond our expectations. We really enjoyed staying there. What a beautiful property with such accommodating staff. Between me and my husband i was vegetarian they always tried to make me the wonderful vegetarian dishes. One of their staff members talked to me in indian language so...

Visited this hotel so see my previous review at from January 2014, and again their service was absolutely first class. The hotel rooms have a beautiful view across the Bosphorus and if your are lucky enough you can see the old town and it's mosques from some of the rooms. Of course you can see across to the other continent...

Set on the banks of the Bosporus, this hotel has a stunning location. Elegant in every way, with impeccable service. Comfortable bars, large pool & really good breakfast. My sea view room was kept spotlessly clean & bed was super comfy. Great hotel.

We stayed 3 nights at this Kempinski. If you compare with other hotels of this chain - Istanbuls time is over. So called Luxury double rooms are small, only one sink in the bathroom, view to the Bosphorus and the garbage area as well as the entrance to the garage. The value for money is not ok. On the other...

Checked in for 5 nights. Lovely pool but pretty much everything else lacking. Rooms extremely tired - broken chair on balcony, stained chair in room, shower only fit for someone under 5' 4". Food average at best, inedible at worst. Order a 'vegetarian pizza' which was a margarita with tinned sweetcorn thrown over it. Burger was disgusting and sent back....

We were upgraded to a garden suite which was very comfortable. The service was friendly and efficient. The view from the balcony restaurant of ships passing reminded us of the long and important history of this area.

My wife and I decompressed at the Ciragan Palace after a 10 day bus tour through Turkey. It was well worth it. After too many days in midrange hotels, being greeted at entry and escorted to our superior Bosphorus view room was really nice. Spa treatments were great, swimming in the outside pool (in January) overlooking the Bosphorus was a...

This is a beautiful hotel and property. I was a little concerned about the location because it's slightly removed from the center of Istanbul. Also concerned because some of the pictures on the website made it look dark with a faded elegance. But we decided to try it based on friends recommendation. We are so glad we did! It was...

Pay up for a Bosphorus view, and maybe it's worth it. But otherwise, the hotel is a bit of a disappointment. Rooms are really quite shabby and desperately in need of an upgrade (or at least a good deep clean). Service is well meaning, but being shown to a smoking room with a twin after booking a non-smoking king was...

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.
