I stayed at the W for 3 nights recently, and loved every second. Brilliant location, excellent luxurious room, full of the stuff comfort is made of. The staff were incredibly charming and attentive and helpful. I loved hanging out in the lobby areas, which are nice and cool (literally) after being out in the noise, chaos and heat. One downer...

I maybe a bit uncool, but frankly, W in Istanbul was a disappointment Pros: - Good location to discover the city, but also for business - Good breakfast Cons: - Dark ambianjce, with black, chrome and red colours which may sound cool but feels like the insides of an iPad and gives out a cold vibe - Rooms are not...

The lobby and elevators are too small and dark for my taste. The rooms were great. We had a fabulous room and a studio suite. Both were great/fine in size. Toilet, shower, and sinks are separate -- a major plus. The service and breakfast was great as well -- would be better if they had cooked to order omelettes/eggs. The... More

With its black / purple interior this was one of the most modern hotel I've stayed at. The hotel was stylish in itself, and the rooms were well equipped with what is needed. Lovely, big beds!

Its within walking distance of the Dolmabahce Palace, Maritime Museum and Hop On Hop Off Bosporus ferries, surrounded by lots of great small shops and eateries, and just a half a block away from a well stocked local grocery.

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.
