Nothing...Excellent location... Besiktas is a nice, upscale area, relaxing from the hustle of main areas. If you need a taxi, ask the front desk to call one for you as its trusted with rates. You can reach all main places with ease by taxi, tram or ferry. Caveat: when you hail a taxi on your own, fix the rate before you proceed, or you may get overcharged metered or not. Also remember to take a business card of the hotel with you, its helpful for the taxi driver when the location of the hotel is asked.
This was our first trip to Istanbul, and it was beautiful. Our stay at Turkuaz Suites was a royal gem!!! Breakfast was a delight, and delicious. It was perfect for us and our two young children. We loved the spacious stay at our suite and the amenities. There are restaurants near by in walking distance...just make sure to wear comfortable shoes as its a bit hilly around the hotel. Thank you from our hearts to yours to the cool and super people at Turkuaz, Aylen, Kemal, Rachid, Duygu, Ugur, Davut, the young lady at breakfast, and all staff...Thank you, you are awesome!!! We will surely stay again on our next visit. Sincerely, Reshma and Faisal Suleman.
