I've been there for two nights with a friend. Once we arrived we've been welcomed by the reception team and offered an early check in which we really appreciated. Rooms are classic style with very good amenities. The breakfast restaurant experience was very joyful, food is excellent and delicious. The team is very helpful. Nothing to complain about. Highly recommended.

I had the chance to stay at Shangri-la Bosphorus last year in November. The rooms were spacious with amazing quality of service. I strongly recommend the restaurant Shang Palace since they deliver amazing Asian cuisine. There was a starter - bacon like dry meat - which was just incredible.

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.
