Let me start w the staff- "Matt" at the front desk was fantastic. He was so helpful and no request was not completed to my satisfaction. If you need advice for anything- "CEM" is your guy. He's at the Concierge's desk. Of ALL the travels I've ever done- he is second to none. He actually walked me to a barber...

It's a W, more reasonably priced than most Ws. Quick check in, bags delivered to the room quickly. A celebratory cheesecake to the upgraded room. Definitely a nice place to celebrate an engagement getaway. Decent breakfasts (for Istanbul) but good fresh omelets and COFFEE. My only wish... the rooms had coffeemakers!

Nice cozy hotel with modern furniture and atmosphere. Friendly and helpful staff. We booked standard room with unique bathroom arrangement. Wash sink with amenities are situated in a closet, shower and toilet are separated. Although it is 5 stars, but coffee and tea aren't provided. It is 20 minutes from kabats tram.

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.
