    Fine location and service

    by

    I chose this hotel for my second visit to Istanbul as I wanted some comfort - I was travelling with my mother - and an old-city location. Despite the works going on (they're changing the ugly 70s facade to one more appropriate for the area) we were happy here. The rooms were comfortable, the breakfast spread varied, and all staff very helpful and polite. The location turned out to be better than I'd thought (it was a last minute decision and I couldn't find a place in Sultanahmet) as it was bang on the tramway stop, very convenient for all the sights and transport links (three stops to Sultanhmet, one to the covered market, four stops to the European train station, five to Eminonu where the boats are).

    We had two rooms (they moved us because of the works) - the first faced Ordu Caddesi but this was not a problem as soundproofing is very good. The second had a sea view, but as it faced west it got almost too warm (temperatures were in the 20s C in April) - though this is unlikely to be a problem in summer when you can just turn up the A/C.

    Only problem I had with this place was that their curtains were not very dark, so maybe not a good choice if you're a light sleeper!

    The price was 80 Euro for two people - not bad at all for a four-star!

    Unique Quality: Located very near the Laleli tramway stop, convenient for getting around.

    Directions: Actually, Hazinedar street, the official address, is the side street, the hotel faces Ordu Caddesi at Laleli Station (right across the university and a short walking distance from Kapali Carsi market and the Ayasofya).

About 10 years ago now a friend of mine went to Turkey for 2 weeks and hired a car, her daughter joined her on the 4th day, she/they had no problems at all, I have heard that from a lot of people. I will be there in June with my friend and have no worries at all, go and enjoy yourself.

Hi Karen,
You can fill your days with visiting the attractions such as museums, churches and mosques. You can also enjoy the various food options. For night life, if you hang out in clubs, jazz bars and popular spots, you will not be disturbed that much. Take a look at my Istanbul page for many suggestions on things to do and where to eat.

Re: things to do

by IreneMcKay

Istanbul is really beautiful. Famous sights include Topkapi Palace, Haghia Sofia, Sultan Ahmet Mosque (all near each other). Yerebatan Saray in the same area is a huge underground cistern with carvings of Medusa. The grand bazaar is also nearby.

The Bosphorus is wonderful. You can go up it by boat or bus. It divides Europe and Asia. Both the European and Asian sides are interesting.

Rumeli Hisari fortress on the Bosphorus is worth seeing as is Anadolu Hisari a smaller fortress on the other side (Asian side). Dolmabache Palace, former residence of Ataturk, is well worth looking at. Take a ferry ride from Besiktas to Kadikoy for stunning scenery. Visit the Princes Islands - Buyukada is the largest, but they are all lovely. You can catch a ferry to them from Eminonu.

Istiklal Caddesi is the main shopping area. Nearby it you can visit the Pera Palace Hotel where Agatha Christie once stayed. It also has the famous Galata Tower for interesting views over Istanbul.

You can take a bus from Uskudar to Sile on the Black Sea, too. Or a bus up the European side of the Bosphorus to Kylios on the Black Sea.

Another good boat trip is to take the boat up the Golden Horn to Eyup.

There are so many wonderful things to do there. You will love it.

And I found a webpage with a lot of interesting pictures and information on Turkey, maybe you want to check it out before you go. Here it is: http://www.constantinopleguide.com/about_Turkey.html

Travel Tips for Istanbul

28-29 October: Republic Day

by Delia_Madalina

As in any other country, the national day is the perfect occasion to see locals going out and having fun. Needless to say that people flooded Taksim Square and the streets around. Buildings were literally masked by the the country flag.

On this day, Turkey commemorates of the proclamation of the republic in 1923. The celebration starts in the afternoon of the 28th. dancing on traditional music with the locals

PIERRE LOTI CAFE

by babazula

Pierre Loti Cafe is on the hills of Eyup. It offers a marvelous view of Golden Horn., the best way to reach there is, to take a taxi from Eyup, or if u like trekking u can walk through cemetary to reach there.

READ YOUR FORTUNE IN A CUP OF COFFEE

by parsix



Don't be surprise if you walk pass coffee shops and see cups upside down.
It is traditional in Turkish culture to have your fortune- or lack of it- read .
Drink as much as you can of your coffee, then turn around the cup, wait for it to cool down and... accept what you are told.

I was skeptical at the beginning but impress at the end.

Rumelihisarı

by MM212

Referred to as the Europe Castle to distinguish it from the Asia Castle across the Bosphorus, Rumelihisarı dominates the narrowest point in the Bosphorus Strait. The castle was built in 1452 by Mehmet the Conqueror in preparation for his invasion of Constantinople. At that point in time, the Ottoman Empire had transplanted the Byzantine Empire from all of its former lands, with the exception of its capital city. The fort was used to control the Bosphorus and to cut off supplies to Constantinople. The castle is located about 15 minutes north of the city, next to Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge.

In the Shadow of Islam

by mrclay2000

A walk up the Golden Horn, once you pass Suleimaniye on the Third Hill, is perhaps more revealing of Turkish life than any other comparable walk in the city. Away from the Galata Bridge, the inland bay is filled with dry-docks for Turkish military vessels, and whatever might left of the sea walls has been claimed as living quarters by impoverished immigrants. Toward the western limit, there stands this Bulgarian Church, erected here once its prefabricated frame arrived from its cruise down the Danube.
