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.

The Shangri-la Bosphorus is an exceptional 5-star hotel at an extraordinary location, but what separates Shangri-la Bosphorus is the high quality, dedication and professionalism of its staff. My check-in went smooth and my room had an exceptional view of the Bophorus.

Yes, the Bosphorus view is a lot nicer especially during sunset..try the half view if the full view is a bit too much..but it's really worthy especially with their service..
