Not recommended if you're looking for peace
Rooms were nicely decorated and had many automated features.
NOISE level was unbearable, I couldn't sleep all night due to SUPER LOUD music followed by a fight right outside my window. I ended up going to sleep around 6:00am. TV was nicely mounted on the wall, but hidden behind glass which made it unviewable; also TV size is too small for the room size, can't really see much from the bed. No breakfast facility on location.
The W Istanbul is centrally located on the European side in Istanbul, with several shops and restaurants just around the corner, Nisantasi is also a short 10 minute walk away (exquisite shopping). Vogue, a rooftop restaurant and bar, is also a short 2 minute walk away. The hotel is clean, trendy and very comfortable. The staff is very helpful and service was excellent (sans the mini-bar items that I never used finding their way onto my check-out bill, which the staff swiftly removed). Would highly recommend the hotel to any solo travelers or couples.
I would have liked for there to have been a salon and for the gym to have offered yoga classes (or any other sort of fitness class).
It's the modern centerpiece of the historic Akaretler Row Houses. A glittering tower amidst gilded domes and minarets. Dynamic finance and chic shopping here, old city and monuments there. It's always the best of both worlds at the W Istanbul. Check out our redesigned spaces. Bulk up or slim down in our updated FIT® gym. Recharge in the newly-unveiled spa. Then strut into the W Lounge, restyled with Ottoman Empire influences and custom modern touches. Mix and mingle with cocktails and DJ beats. Live like a king in the W rendition of opulent seraglios for modern explorers-rooms and suites with garden, terrace, or cabana adorned with Wi-Fi, flat screen TVs, the signature W bed and a whimsical harem of stylish luxuries.
