There is no metro which can make getting around a challenge, especially considering the busy Istanbul traffic (... but taxis cost around 20lira max to take you to the main tourist attractions).
Self catering facilities could be improved. We had no cups for drinks, and only 2 mugs, 1 pan, 1 pot and a kettle. No freezer for ice. It was a challenge, but didn't really bother us because we absolutely loved Capital Suites.
Loved everything! From the moment we checked in to Capital Suites till the moment we checked out, there was nothing not to like about it. It is very modern with a minimalistic interior, and is super clean and spacious!
Serhat is very friendly, down to earth and likeable. He was very helpful with all our queries and made us feel very welcome.
Capital Suites is a great place to stay in Besiktas, as everything is at your doorstep. Besiktas is full of life and has a great vibe, and it is buzzing at all hours, yet we felt extremely safe and comfortable.
We stayed here for 9 days (originally 6 but we extended it for an extra 3) and it felt like we were locals. There's a supermarket right across the road, and heaps of cafes, coffee shops, restaurants, bars, shops, hairdressers and convenience store everywhere.
I have already referred friends, and will definitely be back!
