The hotel Is near the Besiktas Ferry Pier and The Yeldiz Park. It takes around 20 to 30 minutes by taxi to get to most touristic attractions. The staff speaks good English and provide good and prompt service. The main issue was that the water in the bathroom had a high content of chlorine which made me feel like I...

I haven't stayed in this hotel but i have been for a wedding night organization. The view to Bosphorus was amazing. The hotel staff was also friendly. Unfortunately the hotel parking area is very uncomfortable, too narrow, too small and too expensive for such parking area.

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.
