Help in finding a hotel/apartment

by vijay_india

Hi All,

I am planning to visit Istanbul from next week for a period of one month. My place of work is at "Nispetiye Cad. Akmerkez Blok 3 Kat:5/6 Etiler".
Please give me the names of hotels nearer to this place which are chaep and comfortable. Any details about a furnished apartment would also be great.

thanks in advance for your help


Re: Help in finding a hotel/apartment

It is very tough to find furnished appartments in Istanbul. Ortakoy Princess Hotel is close to the address you stated on your posting. Never stayed there and don't have any idea of the prices but you can bargain for a mid or long term stay. Info at http://www.ortakoyprincess.com/infoeng.html

Hope you'll enjoy your stay in Istanbul.

Take care

Hi Can,

Thank you so much for your reply. I looked at that hotel's website. It looks like a 5 star hotel. I will not be able to afford that much. Would be really grateful if you can give me some other hotels' details in the surroundings of Etiler which are like 2* or 3*. I can afford around 30USD.

thanks in advance


Re: Re: Help in finding a hotel/apartment


I dont know the area u have mentioned, but when i went back packing last year, i paid about $12 for a clean double bedroom hotel in taxim area with attached bath.
I will be agian in istanbul on the 3rd, if u r around..reply me and maybe we can meet up.

Unfortunately there is no Hotel in Etiler.. Etiler is one of the most expensive districts of Istanbul.. It is like looking for a cheap place in Beverly hills..

I shall advice you to look for a hotel in Taksim district and take a public bus daily...

Princess Hotels in Istanbul

by glsn

There seem to be two "Princess Hotels" in Istanbul: the Istanbul Princess and the Ortakoy Princess Hotel. They seem like different hotels located in the same place. Is that correct or are they on different locations?

And does anyone know how close the metro is to these hotels?

Also, about how much would a taxi from Ortakoy to Taksim cost?

Thank you!

RE: Princess Hotels in Istanbul

by Alikatt

These are two different hotels in different locations. I'm more familiar with Princess Ortakoy since I stayed in Ortakoy one time last year. I prefer it actually over Taxim since Taxim is busier and noisier. Unfortunately, there is no Metro station near Ortakoy so your best bet is by taxi or bus. Taxi fare will run you about 20 TYL I think depending on the traffic situation. Ortakoy gets heavily congested during peak times and weekends since it's very popular with the restaurants and posh clubs around there plus the weekend outdoor market.

Thanks Alikatt!

Princess Hotels has a website I'm sure so just search for it on the web. There is a very nice and posh new hotel, Iber Princess in Turkbuku also for your consideration. I was there last summer although it may not have been part of the Princess chain then. It's great location-wise and the water is very clean and it's much quieter than the actual bay of Turkbuku but in close proximity to it if you want to party the night away in the summer.

Travel Tips for Istanbul

Bread is sacred

by TheLongTone

No surprise here.
....as the Mayans say, we are made of maize, and the ancient Egyptian word for bread is the same as their word for life.

In Turkey throwing bread away is a real sin. So leftover bread...think of all that bread that goes back to the kitchen when you've finished your meal in a restaurant.... is neatly bagged up and put somewhere the needy can take it. The photo shows such bags hung on the railings outside a mosque.

I call this truly civilised.

In search for Roxolana (aka Roxelana, Hürrem)

by om_212

Roksolana (aka Roxelana, Haseki Hürrem, Hürrem Sultan (d. 1558), the beloved wife of Süleyman I and mother of Selim II. For us Ukrainians, she is known as Nastya Lisovska, a daughter of Ruthenian priest from Rohatyn (city not far from Lviv). Her story is tragic and magnificent. kidnapped from her own wedding and sold into slavery in Kaffa by Tatars, this fragile (and many historian believe not that pretty) girl was sold to Süleyman's Harem.

First she was Süleyman's favorite concubine. her influence on him was immense. not only he granted her freedom, but he also married her in the official ceremony (a completely unusual step, which broke 300 years of Ottoman tradition!)

Some historians say she was manipulative and power-hungry - she did everything possible to get rid off Süleyman’s first-born son, Mustafa (not her son). Do I blame her? I don’t. I wonder what would you do, knowing that your sons would be strangled (the ottoman tradition, to prevent power struggle) the day your husband passed away? I most likely would do the same :)

Some historians also believe that during her reign, she did all possible to control Crimean Tatar slave-raiding in her native land, including buying freedom to enslaved Slavs.

Whatever historians say, she is the cultural and historical icon. and for me personally, she is an inspiration in any difficult situation, as well as an example of female strength and wisdom.

Flower Bazaar

by traveloturc

I know that you heard about big Bazaar,Egyptian Bazaar and Covered Bazaar etc etc
but if you are in Eminonu and if you are near the Yenicami (New Mosque)just in the back of Yenicami you will discover the flower bazaar .You can find almost all kind of flowers in pot and seeds for your plants .If you like garden and if you are gardener this is the right place to be .

Levent Shopping Mall

by H-TownJourneyman about Metrocity Shopping Mall

If you are looking for a modern shopping complex while in Istanbul, this is the place for you! Metrocity Shopping Mall is located in the business & financial district of Levent, an area not frequented by tourists as much as other parts of the city. The mall has over 150 retail stores, selling everything from clothes to electronics. There are also several restaurants located within the food court. The mall is illuminated naturally during the day by the transparent panels that serve as a roof, whic is actually quite nice.
Not a very touristy place to visit, this mall is more of a place for locals to do their shopping, just as in most major cities. But if you are missing that favorite mall from back where you are from, you might just feel right at home here!
