I know by now that many W Hotels have nightclubs/bars which go all night long. I mostly like the atmosphere this brings to the hotel but in Istanbul it was just a bit noisy. The no smoking rule also seems to be forgotten after dark. We were in the most basic of rooms which was lovely albeit the sleeping area... More

I didn't give it 5 stars but it is a wonderful hotel with a great, great staff. We loved our room with the outdoor sitting area. The only con's were that it isn't the most convenient location and lacked some facilities that other W's have. To it's credit, it is located next to several eating spots.. just not the historical...

Stayed at the London W, it was great experience to end. Experience in the Istanbul hotel was very different. Room 230 had a shower that leaked to the main room floor. The restaurant was average , nice menu but poor implementation.

We loved the W. Got a nice room upgrade with SPG. The hotel has a definite character, blending old classic with modern. I could do with less bling (and definitely less perfume in the elevator), but overall liked a lot the service, cleanliness, room comfort, and nice location close enough by cab or long walks. Unlike other comments, the rooms... More

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.
