"My husband and I stayed at the W Istanbul, the hotel was amazing in all aspects, from the modern and adventurous decoration of our room to the buffet breakfast. The hotel’s vibe is modern and sexy with its dark lighting and although it is in a bustling location, the excellent soundproofing means you feel completely removed from the world outside....

The staff here are fabulous. Really made our anniversary special with a room upgrade and great tips for our visit. The entrance makes you feel like a rock star, the DJ in the lounge was brilliant, regardless of it being off season and a bit dead. The breakfasts were great, fresh and lovely each morning and the room had everything...

Great location. Ok rooms. Air-conditioning system not right - individual rooms temperature controlled through central intervention is funny. Sewage system not perfect in the room WC areas.

The historical building is equipped with rooms facing either the Bosphorus through the design-driven Akaretler Neighbourhood or the calm, peaceful outdoor environment; the W Secret Garden and the signature Cabanas.

I had the pleasure of staying 3 nights in this hotel during the World Tourism Forum. Friendly staff and amazing hotel facilities, my room was amazing, comfortable and with all necessary 5 star amenities. Located in a very fancy part of Istanbul this is a great luxurious option while in the city.

Dear W Guest, Thank you for staying at W Istanbul for your short visit. It's good to see you were satisfied with your stay. W Istanbul is truly a blend of the modern and traditional. Even from the location, one can observe the old city (Sultanahmet, Taksim) and the newly developed quarters (Nişantaşı, Beşiktaş). I'm also glad you liked your...

It was not just a fancy hotel but had an artistic and very unusual designed atmosphere. Rooms were like I've never seen before and hotel stuff in general was really helpful and kind.

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.
