The front desk was efficient and friendly. We receive a good up grade, for a large suite with a Bosforus view. The bathrooms amenities was Monton Brown. The Breakfast was really good, the best one. The concierge was not friendly. In Istanbul nothing is complete when you not stay in Ciragan. I'm travel agent and I am check everything, trust...

My first stay at a Kempinski hotel and I was truly impressed. What impressed me most was the breakfast spread-the fact that almost 80 % is organic and the magnificent presentation. The check in was so personalised-not the usual desk check ins that I have experienced at other hotels and we did not have to wait for our room which...

This hotel is tops! Check in was effortless and quick with wonderful service. Bell men appeared from behind walls - or so it seemed - and spirited our luggage away! Beautiful lobby with nice seating area. Our room was water facing, and what a view! Definitely worth the extra to have the view. The room itself was okay. Getting old...

The one and only place to stay in Istanbul! I lived here for two years on business and everything was AMAZING from the food to lounging by the infinity pool on the Bosphorus Sea!

I liked the view and the pool. Gym was good enough. This hotel was like a business hotel. I did not feel like I am on vacation when I was seeing all those people in business outfits. Service was good and fast. I agree with the previous reviewer yes they disturb you in the room very often. They should let...

It is always a pleasure staying at this hotel. Over the last year I've stayed four times at the CPKI, both in the main hotel building and at the suites/palace. And have not been disappointed. The facility is sprawling, and a lot of walking is needed, great choice of restaurants, especially for breakfast. The rooms are good sized, well appointed,...

The rooms are a good size, clean staff are very helpful but the room decor left a lot to be desired. Having paid 2000 dollars per night I was expecting a great room, what i recieved was a basic room by the least. I couldnt move rooms because the hotel was fully booked.

Classic river front property with great facilities. Somewhat lacking a good bar to have a beer at apart from around the pool. Rooms all good, service good, and location is great if you want to be by the river. Turn right out the front of the hotel and walk for 10 minutes to find market stalls and plenty of well...

The hotel has a great location (next to the Four Seasons) with wonderful views from many of the rooms and public spaces. The staff couldn't be nicer, but the hotel has a certain vibe of affluent 40 and 50 somethings that may not appeal to everyone. The standard rooms are of a very good size, and the ocean-view rooms are...

Fantastic hotel, with spectacular pool(s overlooking The Bospherous River. This is a died and went to heaven resort. Makes The Ritz and 4 Seasons looks shabby, esp the The Ritz because it is not on the water. This place is gorgeous. Our only complaint? $25 for a glass of iced coffee. Nice rooms, nice gym.

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.
