Please advise how much is the approximate texi cost from Ataturk Airport to Sultanahmet?
Should the price be fixed, or , do drivers use taxi-meters?

Thank you

Re: taxi

the best way to Sultanahmet from Ataturk airport is metro that runs right under the airport to Aksaray which is last station then take overground (tramvay) from Aksaray to Sultanahmet which is only two stops.

if you still want to take a cap it is about 45 tl around 20 quids.

i am from turkey by the way.

enjoy your time in turkey

Depending on your time of arrival, the price can rise. Are you arriving during the day or late night?

Re: taxi

by lydmr

night time charge is not permitted in istanbul as it used to be. so whenever you take a cap same meter charges.

oh by the way the price is not fix, meter runs unless you agreed not to.

Even all taxis have meters, thay have ways to cheat you, be careful. Especially in Sultanahmet it is almost impossible not to be cheated as a foreigner. It is so obviously bad that we the locals can't take a taxi in Sultanahmet. When they see you look Turkish, they simply deny to take you because they know they will not be able to overcharge. Few days ago I was there with a local friend and we really needed a taxi. We tried hard but it was not possible as usual, the passing ones and the waiting ones all denied us.

Enjoy your visit.

From Ataturk Airport to City Center (Sultan Ahmet Square - Old Town)

a- By Taxi (Yellow Cab): 22 km via coastal road (Kennedy Street) costs about TL30 ($20) and takes about 20 to 30 minutes depending on the traffic. (Rush Hours: 7 - 10 hours in the morning, 5 - 8 hours in the evening)

b- By Light Rail System (Metro) and Tram: 20 km, takes about 45 minutes and costs TL3 ($2) per person. You have to buy 2 tokens at the Airport Station and transfer at Zeytinburnu Station to go further for Sultanahmet which is in the heart of historical peninsula.

c- By Shuttle Service: This service is provided by Havas (you will see this as a sign on the large buses besides the advertisements). You will have to get of at Aksaray on the way to Taksim. Takes about 35 minutes and costs TL10 ($7).

d- By Private Transfer: This could be arranged by you or by your travel agent in advance your arrival. This is the most convenient way to get your hotel, takes about 25 minutes and it may cost more than a cab like TL40 - 60 ($25 - 40).

Travel Tips for Istanbul


by Bregman

Buying a glass of cool Tamarhindi is nothing like getting a can of coke! Be prepared for a full performance, starting with the traditional clothes and ending with the funny way the drink is poured into the glass, only to get sucked back in.

A sunshine road

by Lalique

A crispy winter air was lighted by rare in those days sunshine, sun rays played on a white snow and glossy windows splashing blinding sparks all around, "not a bad day for a walk" I thought and we headed to Bosphorus, one of my favourite places to be in Istanbul.... live is always buzzing near big water.... ships slowly move back and forth, fishermen wait for the luck, seaguls cry and suddenly dive for fish breaking their soar...

Alcohol and mosques

by AcornMan

Turkey is unique in that it is one of the few predominantly Muslim countries in the world where alcohol is legal. Nevertheless, there is one regulation you'll want to keep in mind: Alcohol is not served within view of a mosque, which in a city like Istanbul that is full of big mosques, can pose some challenges if you want a beer with your meal. But even if your hotel is in view of a mosque, there is nothing wrong with buying your own alcohol and drinking it there. In fact, one of my most enjoyable evenings in Istanbul was when I sat on the roof of my hotel in Sultanahmet and enjoyed a cold bottle of Efes Dark (an excellent beer, by the way) while looking out over the Sea of Marmaris in one direction and the top of the Blue Mosque in the other.

Istanbul contrasts

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

“Istanbul is a city of contrasts” – this phrase knows every Russians because of the famous comedy film “Brilliant arm” where a hero told these words and they where repeated many times in the film and in our everyday life… I never thought in far 1960th that would ever see those contrasts with my own eyes…

You may watch my high resolution photo of Istanbul on the Google Earth according to the following coordinates 41° 0' 36.37" N 28° 58' 44.92" E or on my Google Earth Panoramio Istanbul contrasts.
