I live in the S.France and as a senior executive for a multinational have travelled to many fine hotels. In my view this is the best as it offers 5***** luxury, service and amenities on one side and then you have the Bosphorous ! The hotel boasts a spectacular view in front of the hotel where you see boats of...

Stayed last month for two days. Great arrival procedure with a personalised service. Changed rooms on seeing the Garden view room we were giving and swapped to a Bosphorus view which was far better. Great service and feeling of grandness about the place but food and drink were very high priced and based on the view rather than the food...

Well, believe me, this was one of the best hotel experiences we had untill now : great location, service, friendly and helpfull staff, excellent restaurants, etc. Better than other Kempinskis, altough this one isn't so new anymore. They also have a good hotel taxi-service with decent drivers and...

I stayed with this hotel in 2012, and I was expecting same zeal, and wariness this time. But I was terribly wrong, it was a complete waste of money - no warmness in staff, terrible rooms and the only best thing left is the view (Bosphorus) and the Bosphorus Grill restaurant. I do not suggest this property for stay till...

I stayed here for 3 nights while at the hotel for a work conference. The hotel was very expensive- a simple room service breakfast of muesli and toast was $40! The hotel is looking a bit worn and could use a renovation. The hotel is walking distance from restaurants and shops. I was pleased with the service in general. The...

We recently spent 4 days at this fabulous hotel. It is in a great location, right on the edge of the Bosphorus, with beautiful gardens and a huge heated swimming pool. We had 3 interconnecting rooms, which were well equipped, although they were slightly old fashioned in their decor, and unfortunately had some rather tacky prints in frames, instead of...

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.
