I have to start this by telling the reader that I am in the 60-70 age range which is Old Fart (OF) territory and this review should be read with that in mind. I am definitely not the target visitor. You need 20/20 vision and I believe, an understanding of 'cool' to appreciate the subtleties of the hotel. I have...

Dear W Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. Your comments and concerns are very important to us. We would like to apologize that the W Istanbul was not to your liking.

Thoroughly enjoyed our time at the W Istanbul. The rooms are well designed, clean and quiet.(though a little under-lit but that seems to be the W aesthetic everywhere). The location is terrific, near to what you want to see/do while maintaining a slightly luxurious separation from all the bustle of Istanbul. My final call out is to the great staff...

We stayed at W Istanbul for four nights. A really nice and well located hotel that will delight anyone visiting the city for the first time.

I travel a lot, spend many hours in meetings, airplanes and cars. To come to a place like the W after a full week of work has been revitalizing and simply said, a tremendous pleasure. The quality of the suite was matched by the professional, curteous and warm service of all the staff.

I stayed at this hotel for one evening, my time here was short but very, very enjoyable. The staff could not be friendlier or more helpful, the bed and pillows were amazing - possibly the comfiest bed I have ever slept on. The shower cubicle was huge, bigger than most bathrooms.

Hotel was great. Conveniently located (although could be closer to the tram line) the place was beautiful. Rooms were nice and spacious and the staff was very friendly. Décor was a bit trendy for my liking. Seemed to remind me of a night club... but then again, that is the W brand. Great hotel overall.

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.
