Hotel Selection

by liveid78

I am wondering if anyone has an comment on this hotel Seres Hotel
Hudavendigar Caddesi 49, Sirkeci
Istanbul, 34420 Turkey

I would like to be somewhere central where I can mingle with locals and still see tourist attraction. AS I read that the night life among the locals are more interesting.

Staying in an hotel in Sirkeci is a good choice; you are near the tram lines and the ferries going everywhere. It's less touristic than Sulthanhamet, and still very near all the attraction.

I stayed there during my last trip (few weeks ago) and I'm recommanding this location to all my friends who are coming in Istanbul this summer.

Unfortunatly, I don't know the hotel Seres; there are a lots of hotel in this area.

by bliss_sss

Hi all!
any idea how to get from airport to Sultanahmet, i'm going to book a room in Uyan Hotel and really wonder is there any airport shuttle that i can make use of?

RE: Airport transfer to Sultanahmet

by babazula

i think there is one from taksim area..however it is better for you to go by Metro... its up to you for sure...cheers...:)

RE: RE: Airport transfer to Sultanahmet

by babazula

... airport to sultanahmet...exactly metro: taksim is the wrong answer sorry.

RE: RE: Airport transfer to Sultanahmet

by ersavas

1. you take the metro from the airport to the "Zeytinburnu" station, and there get off and take the tram to "sultanahmet" and pay total 2.2 ytl = 1.5 Euro/person
2. take a taxi directl to Sultanahmet, will cost max 20 ytl, 12 Euro

RE: RE: Airport transfer to Sultanahmet

by bliss_sss

Thanks for your propmt replies!
and if i would go to Sirkeci area, is it a nice one? have you heard about Seres Hotel there? and what the transfer to there?
basically i want to make a surprise for my parents - I've bought the tickets already and now trying to find a nice hotel at a moderate price and within walking distance to all major landmarks!

hi... i know Uyan hotel and the owners and staff... they will arrange a van to pick you up if you advise them as to your arrival time and airline etc. Contact them via their website if you havent done so already and let them know you need a pickup. It will cost you maybe 30 YTL but a taxi will cost you them same from airport to Sultanahmet. However Uyan service will take you directly to hotel. It is a lovely hotel i have stayed there many times and love the hotel and location is perfect for a stay in Sultanahmet. You are minutes away from Sultanahmet mosque and Ayasofia... And no i dont work there, I now live istanbul and am just giving advice!!

RE: RE: Airport transfer to Sultanahmet

by gypsii

Also i just arrived from a trip to europe and the taxi fee from airport to sultanahmet where i live was 28 ytl.... and you will save money if you take the trains and metro... but may be inconvenient.

best wishes

RE: RE: Airport transfer to Sultanahmet

by gypsii

RE: RE: Airport transfer to Sultanahmet

by ersavas

I really cannot imagine it, either I need another confirmation or I will take a taxi and try! that distance cannot be 28 km!

RE: RE: Airport transfer to Sultanahmet

by gypsii

Travel Tips for Istanbul

Spend time wandering through...

by glicko

Spend time wandering through the bazaars. I wish more of my pictures had turned out, but nothing could decribe the smells, flavours, sounds and experiences that await you in these maze-like public markets. Sitting in a small café smoking apple-flavoured tabacco from a huge free-standing waterpipe. This particular photo was taken in a small café on a small street somewhere near the tramway in Sultanahmet (wish I could be more specific).

No, I do not usually smoke. But I made a notable exception here. It provided such a calm, contemplative atmosphere in which to talk to my travelling companions.

Rustem Pasa Camii

by leics

A small mosque, almost totally hidden in the warren of streets around the Spice Bazaar.

Try to find Hasirsilar Caddesi and then Rustem Pasa Mahkmesi Sok.

You are looking for two stone arches, on the right if you come from the Spice Bazaar, both of which have stone staircases within...they will be almost hidden between market stalls.

What's the reason for visiting this mosque, built by Sinan for Rustem Pasa (the vizier for Suleyman the Magnificent) in 1561? Quite simply, its tiles.

They are absolutely superb. Iznik tiles of the best type, with deep reds mixed with their wonderful blues and a multitude of different patterns to be seen.

Entirely beautiful.

Well worth wandering the crowded and narrow streets around the bazaar (of interest in themseves) seeking out those stone arches.

The Askeri Muzesi (Military Museum)

by Paul2001

The Askeri Muzesi traces the "glorious" military history of Turkey and the Ottoman Empire. The museum houses a very large collection of artifacts relating to military affairs some of which was quite fascinating. Most memorable are the collections of swords and a marvelous exhibit of tents that were used in campaigns during the height of military glory of the Ottoman empire during the 16th century. The museum seems to largely ignore or rush over the sadder or inglorious episodes in Turkish military history. Hence the Russo-Turkish War, the Balkan Wars and much of the First World War, wars that Turkey all lost, seem to be forgotten or ignored. The exclusion being the Gallipoli campaign during the First World War where the Turks fended off an Allied attempt to defeat Turkey by way of an amphibious invasion along the Aegean coast and a drive onto Istanbul. The cannon you see in this photo is a large relic from this battle. For most the primary reason to visit the Askeri Muzesi is to see the Concert of the Mehter for which it will provide a seperate tip.
The Askeri Muzesi is open from Wednesday to Sunday from 9am to 5pm. It costs to 50 cents to see the museum. The museum is located a kilometer northeast of Taksim Square.

A great neighborhood for antiques and design

by travelmad478 about Çukurcuma neighborhood

The Çukurcuma neighborhood, which runs south down the hill from Taksim toward Galantasaray, is a wonderful place to poke around. This area is completely off the tourist path, but is even more atmospheric than many touristy neighborhoods. There are dozens of cool shops tucked into side streets that you can spend hours wandering around in.
