The Benesta at Beyoğlu is a wonderful place, comparable to 4-5 star hotel. The apartment was super clean. There was a supervisor on site(Hadeer Othman), who was helpful with any issue 24/7.
It’s a huge, beautiful building with security 24/7. The security people were very respectful and professional. There are two markets outside the property, where we could buy bread, fruit and water from. There is a Sheraton hotel next to the property that we went for dining , coffee, and also signed up for city tours.
The apartment was almost brand new with everything set up properly. There is a washing machine , fridge, cookware and tea/coffee maker with enough dishes and utensils. Anything we needed, we just had to contact Hadeer! She is super wonderful and speaks perfect English. The only minor issue is the noise from outside. If you get a room with windows to the main road, it would be very noisy day or night if you open the windows.
I forgot to mention the cleanliness of the property. All hallways, elevators, common facilities like the pool and Sauna were impeccable.
For transportation, download Uber. You also need to get a taxi to go around the city. If you go to the other side of the road and climb up one of the narrow streets you will end up in Istiklal Cad with lots of shops and food.
I highly recommend this place . It’s a steal for the money.
