İ tried swissotel living İt was amazing, breathtaking views and comfortable apartments. İ like the location, you can walk to niştantaşi nice street with many shops and restaurant. And there is huge park beside it. However, i believe streets on that area are not suitable for kids .

Very good hotel. Rooms are spacious and well maintained. As hotel gyms go, the gym here is not bad at all. The food in the hotel is ok. I had breakfasts and also a dinner while I was there.

Location great but up a hill from the end of the tram-line, near the Besiktas football stadium. We walked a lot. Clean, friendly staff, great views, well-equipped gym and pool areas, good food.

Staying in Besiktas

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood 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.
