I spent two nights in this hotel for a business trip and I will surely get back when in Istanbul for leisure or business. Located in Besiktas, close to the old city center and to the airport, the hotel has been recently refurbished and offers modern rooms, a top floor restaurant with a view, an excellent and healthy breakfast, room...

It is not easy to access the hotel without car. But the room was nice and clean. Nice view from Executive Lounge. Breakfast was just simple. But smoking terrace is nice to see the bridge. if you consider to stay for business it would be good choice.

As a regular Marriott guest, the Istanbul Polat was without a doubt one of my best experiences, and I look forward to returning in a matter of weeks. The welcome was warm and genuine, the rooms beautiful, and the service in the restaurant exceptional and attentive.

Modern hotel, nice guestrooms, very spacious bathrooms. The staff was extremely polite, friendly and helpful - a general oberservation in most Turkish hotels. The view from my room on the 10th floor was wonderful: Bosphorus, Golden Horn and sea of Marmara. Good location if you are on business, not so good if you are in Istanbul for sightseeing, because it...

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.
