Beautiful hotel overlooking the Bosphorus and close to Istanbul's key tourist attractions. The service is courteous and warm, spa is wonderful, and breakfast spread decent. The terrace offers panoramic views and a cool, laid back lounge for hookah and drinks. The only negative was the relatively small room size but interiors were spic and span.

It was a great service in Ritz Le Blue and the waiters were too polite and friendly. The food was good and service was great. Suggest to anybody who wants to spend an afternoon with good food, service and a full view of Istanbul.

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.
