Excellent Hotel. Services and Location wise. Highly recommended for family and business as well as couples. The resutrans in the hotel and in the Mall is excellent. You don't need to leave the hotel if you don't want to.

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.
I would say for a full Bosphorus view, the cheapest would be the signature room and this tends to €400 Euros plus per night.
Some partial views in premier rooms which tends to be €300 plus per night.
There are many...More
