We went by cruise ship, which I highly recommend. This is a very busy city and I personally like not having to deal with finding accommodations. Also, the view of this port from the ship was incredible. How else could you see a SUNRISE over Turkey like this?
Stay near the Taksim (try the Hotel Palace Vadar) for nightlife and near the Mosques for sight seeing. This is the Blue Mosque, but the Mosque of Suhlamet is bigger and better, the walk up there takes you behind the scenes of the Bazaar as well!
I propose always the charming hotels of the old city... Ayasofya Houses , Green House etc... Many of theme are located near St. Sophie, Blue Mosque, Old Hippodrome ... Armada Hotel at the Marmara Sea side ... And of course Ciragan Palace on the Bosphorus... ( Foto : Antoine Agoudjian )
Hotel: $40 per night, Pension: $25 per night
This lovely hotel is located very conveniently between the Aya Sofia and the Blue Mosque, with views of both, as well as the sea, from the breakfast room. The hotel is co-located with the Side Pension, which is probably also nice. Our hotel room was large, clean, and best of all, had a big balcony from which we could see the Blue Mosque and Aya Sofia. The hotel is just across the street from the Four Seasons hotel, which makes it easy to tell cab drivers where to take you! Here I am on the balcony with the Aya Sofia in the background.
cheap and friendly, with allot of very nice peaople living fix on the campground, cause they are afraid to go back into a house cause the earthquake's
We paid $125.oo per night for this great hotel. We were on a super saver price (non refundable). A great value. We also went of peak season which helped with the price.
