Having already stayed in the heart of the tourist district (Sultanahmet) earlier in our trip, it was nice to be in a somewhat quieter setting with views over the water. This hotel lacks the charm of other Istanbul hotels, as it is more oriented for business travelers (e.g., no turkish rugs in the rooms), but the room and bathroom were...

I stayed at this hotel at my wedding night and as much as i've been looking for it, the disappointment was as bigger. The bed was terribly uncomfortable, and we should have taken the various pillow choices as a hint, because their default pillow wasn't very good too. The room is spacious and so is the bathroom, and i understand...

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.
