Overall, the experience at the W Hotel was fine. It didn't blow me away. Pro's: -Service was excellent. 5 Stars. When we arrived into the port in Istanbul, it was chaos with several boats arriving at the same time, not to mention a complete downpour. We were waiting in the pouring rain for almost an hour before I decided to...

Generally had a very happy visit to W Istanbul with my girlfriend in Jul '14. Several notes: - Facilities / Hotel: The rooms are really lovely. Well designed and spacious, especially for Istanbul. The "magnificent" rooms have cabanas which are a huge plus. Hallways are a little rock-and-roll and trippy - not a bad thing. Beds are great, showers are...

We were surprised by the size of the tight size of the "Marvellous" room and the fact that there was no swimming pool - my bad, I expected a W to have at least a plunge pool to cool off in the hot Turkish summer. Concierge was often absent and more than once were we told to "call back in...

Trendy hotel in a nice Istanbul area, close to Bosporus and walking distance to Nisantasi shopping area. The decoration was modern with local oriental touch and the lighting was sentimental, although a bit dark for my taste. Sometimes I thought I was in a night club, rather than a hotel. Room was beautiful, not as big as in other W...

Lived to the W standard. I regret staying elsewhere in Istanbul. Easy access to places around: restaurants, shops, high end shops, and sightseeings. The only down thing was breakfast, it was not the best. Great variety of rooms giving you nice choices

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.
