In June, I had the pleasure of visiting Istanbul and staying at the W with my friends who were getting married. My experience here was quite special. The hotel staff remembered each of us, and were so kind. They offered my friends an upgrade of their room, and decorated the room their wedding night and provided complimentary snacks even. Staff...

We stayed at W Istanbul for my birthday and I'm so glad I chose this hotel. The location is great, very central for exploring Istanbul by foot but also great as the big red hop on/hop off bus stops right outside.

To top that off, the Row Houses where the building's situated provides a beautiful blend between Ottoman architecture and 21st century design.

The Hotel is located in the Beshiiktash area close to the Bosphorus. Plenty of restaurants around. As W is known for it’s a chic and modern stile, while entering the hotel it feels like entering a night club. Mirrors and neon lights in the long L shaped corridor. Which leed to check in counter in the same corridor. We were... More

Location is very good, behind Shangri-La Bosporus. Price is average. Cleaning is not that good even though they using brand name amenities (Bellies). Decorations is crazy with lights and colors (Red is the major color). No Lobby. No much facilities inside the hotel.

The best and foremost thing that can be said about this hotel is its location, its in close proximity to the trendy/upscale part of town (nisintasi etc) and very close to the Besiktas market with many pubs/bars/cafes as well as some nice restaurants/brasseries... all in all this hotel is close to many attractions whilst being away from the main hustle...

Kind Dr. Saig, I'm awfully sorry to hear that your stay didn't live up to the expectation. Still, I thank you for your honesty and time. The Leading Tunnel can get a bit busy sometimes and the structure of the historical building leaves no room for larger hallways. I personally enjoy the history stored in between the hallways and the... 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.
