WOW.. What a stay. The W Istanbul is a very chic boutique style hotel in the heart of Istanbul. Surrounded by amazing architecture buildings with cobble stone streets. The staff are one of the friendliest you can find & always offering to help. The rooms are well sized with offering outside sitting areas. The only negative is the shower (you... More

We travelled to Istanbul in December, so bring your warm clothes. The hotel was like a secret escape. The decorating was luxurious and glam with hints of darker shades mixed with shiny material . This hotel have everything you can look for, it's trendy with the top bar, and business like lounge besides the reception point. It also had a... More

Dear Eleni, You're totally right; Istanbul is heated up in summertime but here in W Istanbul we still manage to keep our cool with our detox drinks in hand in the refreshingly breezy W Secret Garden. As for your secret escape, why not do another one in summer? We won't tell anyone! All the Best, Christian Hoehn General Manager More

This W hotel met the global SPG W standard. Nice lobby area bar, outdoor bar is cool and the room has all of the modern accommodations one would expect from this hotel brand. Unfortunately due to the instability in Istanbul the hotel was pretty empty but they can't help that. When I go back to Istanbul, when things are much... More

The W Istanbul combines the western style and design of the W brand and the oriental flavors of where you, is perfectly located to stroll around and discover this great city and all of its completely different neibourhoods.

The rooms have comfortable beds but the cleanliness isn't great. The switches are dusty. The wood finish look tired and I would at least expect a coffee maker in 5 star room that's this expensive. Furthermore, this the quietest W I've seen so far. On the positive side, the patio on some rooms are a great addition. Location wise, I... More

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.
