I just got back from a weekend in Istanbul at the Ritz-Carlton and didn't want to come home! We'd paid extra for the beautiful views of the Bosphorous, but on arrival, were upgraded to a suite. The views were outstanding, definitely worth the extra room price for. The suite, 611, was very luxurious, with two bathrooms, a huge bed, 2...

I arrived at the Ritz-Carlton Istanbul around noon time and was quickly checked-in by the friendly front desk staff. I was incorrectly assigned a partial Bosphorus view room instead of a full front view room as I had booked. The issue was resolved quickly and my bags were moved to the correct room while I had an enjoyable lunch at...

One of the best hotels I have ever visited with attentive and well trained staff and a pleasant ambience. Although the locatin appears remote, it is only a few minutes' walk down to the Bosphorus or up to Taksim Square. The only disappointment is the very limited outdoor area available to guests.

Traffic were professional and caring. The hotel is very Cowan and the rooms were spacious and well furnished. The bed was very comfortable. Shampoo and other toiletry were below standard for a luxury hotel. Towels size was marginal. I did not find the expected Ritz Carlton luxury in the furnishings and supplies.

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.
