W Istanbul

Luxury hotel in Beşiktaş, Nişantaşi & Ortaköy

This chain hotel is unfortunately named for İstanbul: there is no 'w' in Turkish and taxi drivers refer to the 'V' hotel. Nonetheless, it is well located, a few minutes' walk uphill from the Dolmabahçe Palace, in a historic row of houses. Marmara marble and Ottoman patterns adorn the contemporary rooms. Facilities include a lounge bar, a spa and a gym.
