Upscale chain injects signature modern, sexy style into the Old City

Istanbul's Bazaar Quarter gets a decidedly modern lift from this W Hotel. The W Istanbul puts guests in the midst of a section of the Old City famous for everything from ancient mosques to avant-garde nightlife. Guests at the pet-friendly property will be forgiven if they decide to forgo some city experiences in favor of more time at the hotel and its luxurious rooms. On-site amenities include a day spa, a lobby and cocktail bar, the W Lounge, and the W Kitchen restaurant. Complimentary wireless Internet is available in all public spaces. 

Highlights

  • Rooms are wonderful places to retreat and relax
  • Hotel's concierge provides top-notch service
  • Located in the exciting Bazaar Quarter
  • Complimentary wireless Internet access in public spaces

Rooms

The W's rooms all offer respite from the day's business or touring. The rooms -- from the standard Wonderful rooms to the Extreme Wow Suite -- feature all the modern touches travelers expect of an upscale hotel, including iPod docking stations and wireless Internet access (fees apply). Some rooms have private cabanas or the peace and quiet of a private garden space. All rooms feature a blend of modern and classic Turkish design.

Features

The globally inspired menu at the casual W Kitchen -- open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner -- focuses on locally produced ingredients. W Kitchen stays open until 2 a.m. Wednesday through Saturday. The lobby Sip bar features upscale bar treats, an extensive cocktail menu, and several stocked bookshelves for guests' reading pleasure.

 

Other on-site amenities include the Say Spa, featuring Linge St. Barth products, and a fitness center loaded with modern cardio and weight machines.

my first W like this

very clean. good staff.. good location. but very funky... Bath tab right in room's hallway. Shower is separate. also right in Hallway. Bathroom is separate. also in hallway. it's like you have to do all things separately. clean hands in one place... bathroom in another and then shower somewhere else. kind of weird.

AMAZING SERVICE, GREAT LOCATION, ROOMS

The hotel is very trendy and is located in an exclusive enclave within the "New City." [...], General Manager, and his TALENT team provided a warm welcome, gracious yet discreet service, and showcased a STELLAR attitude. Their local insight and knowledge afforded us a customized cultural experience in Istanbul. The hotel rooms were small, but very practical, and offered every technological amenity possible. The hotel lacks a pool, but has a great roof-top fitness center, and wonderful rain showers that double as personal "hammams."I would return again and again.....

Great décor, poor service

Great atmospehere, nice rooms. Loud music coming from their night club will bother you if your room is too close to it and you try to sleep before midnight. Had to wait 1 hour to get someone to help me with my luggages when I was trying to check out of the hotel. For a 5 star hotel I think I have waited for too long. I almost missed my flight becuase of that delay.
