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...

When we arrived to the hotel (26th of August 2016) the reception staff kept on searching for our booking and they couldn't find it, although we're usually very careful when we plan our vacation (my wife & I), but for some reason we have booked our stay in this hotel in the 26th of September instead of August by mistake....

The hotel is located in Besiktas, one of the best areas of Istanbul. You can use a nice pool and a medium level gym. The restaurant at the top floor offers an ashtoning view of the city. Meal is not bad.

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.
