I was there for two nights. I arrived early in the morning and I must wait until 2 pm for check in , but with kind of reception , I took my room in 10 am. The hotel was tidy and clean ,bed was comfortable and breakfast was good. Overall i recommended.

We stayed there for a week. It was B&B. We did like the food quality. Very clean and staff are just friendly. But it is not a real 5* hotel. All in all, we liked the place. The neighborhood is good but it's far from Taksim.

Nothing special for this hotel. It has a nice location. Apart from that, staff is average, food is average, prices are a bit on the high side. The elevators are slow. So price performance wise not a good choice.

This was a very nice hotel, modern with high security. You must go thru a metal detector as you enter the hotel. I felt very safe. it is located on a side street away from the downtown area but within walking distance of a 6 story mall! For those on tight budget fast food restaurants and grocery stores are directly...

We stayed a week for a wedding, and since day one we're offered every little treats a visitor can get. The security is a little to much, the decoration overrated, but everything else is top of the line. We can only recommend this place as one of the best hotels in Istanbul!

Staying in Besiktas

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
