I would recommend cabbing to the nearby Zorlu Centre for some upscale shopping experience! Facilities are pretty standard, though had a bad experience with one of the lounge staff questioning me with an accusatory tone whether I had access. Still,...

This is a very posh & modern hotel. Good location with gorgeous Bosphorus & city views. Fine amenities throughout… I found the staff & service excellent. It left me feeling sad to leave when the time came. I would gladly return and would highly recommend it to others.

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.
