Like an oriental fairy tale. Beautiful, historical building. Well maintained. Excellent, friendly staff. Fantastic bar. Top breakfast. Pretty pool en beds. Great views on the waterside. In summary, a luxurious must-do in Istanbul, although not cheap..

Everything was perfect from A to Z and special thanks to the breakfast staff team and Mis Damle for her hard work and smiling face everyday morning. Also I would like to thank Mr. Quentin Restaurant Manager.

Breath taking and a real palace. From the moment you enter into this hotel you experience the luxury. The Restaurant is outstanding, and do recommend for brunch on Sunday, or high tea in the terrace with the Amazing view over the Bosporus.

This was a treat beyond words. The hotel is on the Bosphorus and is an enormous property. We had a room with a view of the Bosphorus and it was lovely. The hotel's pool is one called an infinity outdoor pool which gave the appearance that the pool flowed into the Bosphorus. There is free wifi and bottled water on...

This phosphorus luxury hotel is nice location that you can enjoy it, have a good and fun time, with family or friends or even alone as I do from time to time. Because it's directly in front of the sea you can sit and relax and clean your mind.

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.
