Currently staying at the hotel on 2nd floor with a view onto interior courtyard. Great hotel but our room is super small with combo bed and bath. Hip but coupled with no outdoor space that both neighbors have and they can look into our room which means keeping drapes closed makes it very claustrophobic. Avoid room 209. Otherwise staff has...

Dear W Guest, Thank you so much for letting us know about your recent stay. We are sorry to hear that your room was in the middle of two amazing Marvelous Cabana Rooms. I understand that perfectly, seeing those cabanas outside makes you feel like your room is small and not enough. Please for your next visit to our hotel,...

This was a fantastic hotel. The room was decorated and furnished to a high standard and it had some quirky features, for example all of the bathroom amenities were hidden behind cupboard doors! This made the room feel much more spacious. The decor was dark and contemporary and there's lots of pink lighting throughout the hotel. We ate in the...

Just had three days at the 'W' and I couldn't fault it. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great room and excellent breakfasts. Would definitely go back there. Taxis in Istanbul are cheap but often go nowhere very fast - the traffic appears to be a permanent headache, but the trams easy to use. The 'W''s location is very nice but...

We stayed here May 2013. The hotel is hip and trendy. Concierge is very helpful. My husband's birthday was during our stay and we received a mousse cake and balloons to decorate our room.

I stayed at the W Istanbul for four nights this January. The rooms are modern and well furnished (what you would expect from a W hotel). The staff was friendly and gave great recommendations for restaurants in the area. The bar was hopping on Friday and Saturday night, but we could not hear the noise from our room. The location...

Arrogant staff and tiny rooms, over perfumed and very dark inside. They have put 'trendy' ahead of comfort and style. but, it's a W, so you get a good breakfast, a good night's sleep, a good shower and mod cons which are essential for business travel.

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.
