Hotel staff and service were wonderful. The rooms were super funky and cool. Location was a little bit far from everything we wanted to do, but we felt very safe and it was nice to be outside of all the chaos and tourism. We stayed because of SPG points and it was a great experience.

We loved everything about this place! The service couldn't have been better. The rooms were stylish and comfortable. The lights were a little trick to figure out, but staff was quick to help. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit.

Typically, I wouldn't take my kids to a W hotel. It turned out be a great bet. We were upgraded to a suite and the hotel granted us a complimentary room service of chocolate dessert.

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.
