The indoor pool and spa were closed for renovation but the outside pool and lounge were very nice. We stayed in a junior suite. The room was in excellent condition and...

Everything was excellent from the included breakfast buffet to the free WiFi. The beds were very, very comfortable and the rooms are spacious. The staff were very helpful. The only negative is that the liquor in the restaurant is very expensive. A glass of wine is $16.

The Ritz Carlton is very very good. Staff are exceptionally helpful, friendly, and responsive. Rooms are beautifully furnished and most are well sized. The breakfast buffet is one of the best anywhere and the location is well positioned close to Taksim, Nisantasi and the waterfront and the slow moving traffic toward Ortakoy and Ciragan Palace, Four Seasons Bosphorous, and many...

Stayed at the Ritz Carlton in Istanbul for a few days before starting our cruise. Excellent hotel and location. Deniz and the Club Lounge team did a great job in helping us with all of our needs. They excel at service. Look forward to our next stay.

The hotel's attention to detail made our 5day break the best we've had in a very long time. They really appreciate customer service. The Club Lounge just added to our experience, particularly the assistance given by Deniz and the team. The outdoor spa was also just fab! Would certainly recommend.

We stayed for over a week and the experience was just perfect. It is well located, close to the Besiktas Stadium, the Bosforous, Taksim, Istiklal, the metro station is just five minutes walking.

We stayed club level and really enjoyed it. There were 5 presentations all which were lovely and good mix of food and drinks. Location was pretty good. Not in old city but close to public transportation (tram). Deniz helped with all of our reservations and tours while in town for two days. Would definitely stay here again. Also beautiful pools...

After much deliberation I decided on a Club Room for 2 nights as an end to our cruise. From the moment we pulled up the service was exceptional. Everyone was so friendly and genuine. The effortless check in was conducted in the club lounge which was decorated to the highest standard. A special mention to Deniz and all the staff...

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.
