Map & Istanbul

"Located at the core of the historical peninsula."

Beşiktaş Bosphorus

Besiktas stands on the water's edge just beyond Dolmabahce Palace. Its present name means cradle stone, of doubtful origin, though one colorful tale attributes it to a stone that was brought here. The Byzantine Emperors had a palace here, and so too did later Ottoman Sultans, in particular Selim III whose beautiful wooden palace was replaced by his cousin Mahmut II with a grandiose marble edifice. 

Along the waterfront, is the Painting and Sculpture Museum. In it are Turkish paintings and sculptures of the 19th and 20th centuries. The Maritime Museum includes a range of navigational instruments, ships figureheads, arms, uniforms, models, paintings and memorabilia. 

On the other side of the road is Sinan Pasa Mosque built by his namesake, the architect Sinan. Sinan Pasa became Grand Admiral four years after Barbaros death.

What Our Guests Say

"The location is excellent! A few minutes walk from 3 major attractions. Room is made daily, and some of the staff are very helpful. Very comfortable bed, when the room had cooled down!"
