    Aga Hamam Hostel

    Aga Hamam Hostel

    4 reviews

    Aga Hamam Hostel is a great place for young travelers, backpackers, or anyone who appreciates a great hostel! The hostel is located on the small side streets between Cihangir and Taksim. It is no more than a 5 minute walk to either neighborhood! It is close to all the action but without the burden of the 24/7 noise. The street ...

    Good! - 79% of guests recommend

    This place is in a great location in the Sultanahmet area, near the best sites, a ton of restaurants, and shops. The en-suite room I had was clean, spacious, and comfortable. The guys at the desk were really helpful and the breakfast, served on the rooftop, was amazing.

    Orient Hostel International

    Orient Hostel International

    3 reviews

    You wouldn’t believe that you can find a hostel in such an amazing spot of Istanbul. This place is probably less than a minute’s walk from Hagia Sophia and the surrounding sights of Blue Mosque and Grand Bazaar are really nearby. As well as the great location, Orient has a really friendly and chilled out vibe and an awesome view ...

    Excellent! - 89% of guests recommend

    Gulhane is a great neighborhood to stay. Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace are just up the hill. The tram leads to Sirkeci Station and the ferries of Eminonu around the corner. The streets are cobblestones and some of my favorite restaurants and nargiles are in this neighborhood. Sapphire is spacious, with many amenities--including guided tours and airport transfer. The decor ...

    #bunk beyoglu

    2 reviews

    A mix of hostel and hotel in the heart of the European side of the city. The location is down a side street that's only a short walk from the main shopping area of Istiklal St. and the bars of Nevizade Sokak. This makes it quieter than if you were in the heart of it all. There's a common area ...

    Galata Life Istanbul

    Galata Life Istanbul

    4 reviews

    This is a small but cosy hotel situated just opposite the splendid Galata Tower. Its entrance, serving as a coffeehouse and its terrace restaurant are not the most fashionable places you can find around Galata but you are at least very approximate to some of the most elegant restaurants, pubs and clubs in town. The hotel has only five rooms, ...

    Very Good! - 80% of guests recommend

    A decent budget hotel that’s close to all the sights of Sultanahmet such as the Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace. It’s a really excellent price for the location but you do pay for that with space. The rooms are very small – double bed pushed against the wall with just enough space to walk around it. However, if you’re out ...

    Side Hotel and Pension

    Side Hotel and Pension

    5 reviews
    Excellent! - 85% of guests recommend

    Side Hotel and Pension is a decent and attractive middle-range accommodation place. Side is situated in a very good location, between the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia (just opposite the Seven Hills Hotel), but on a quieter part of the area where you are removed from witnessing the driving habits of Istanbul car owners. Considering the options (the hotel and ...

    Class:

    Good! - 77% of guests recommend

    This is an interesting hotel, almost hidden from view but very convenient if you are in search for a good base for your Old Peninsula excursions. Like the rest of Sultanahmet hotels, they offer no 'full pension' option, only breakfast. And Alaaddin Hotel does not serve alcohol. The rooms could be more appealing, more than a pad to return to ...

    Istanbul Harmony Hostel

    3 reviews
    Excellent! - 91% of guests recommend

    This hostel has dorms with proper beds (i.e. not bunk beds). The bathroom facilities are clean and the toilet is separate, so no waiting for the loo while one person has a mammoth shower! There are lockers available, but for some reason they’re in the hallways and not in the rooms, which doesn’t feel as safe. But the best thing ...

    Ciragan Palace Kempinski

    Ciragan Palace Kempinski

    Class:
    19 reviews
    Excellent! - 90% of guests recommend

    The Ciragan Palace Kempinski is absolutely regal! A fairly simple exterior, the luxurious lobby, rooms, and spa are breathtaking. The entire hotel is filled with marble floors, Anatolian carpets, and Iznik tiles accenting the walls. As I wondered throughout the hotel, I imagined that this was how the neighboring Ottoman Ciragan Palace looks from the inside. There are a variety ...

    This former prison has been converted into one of the most luxurious hotels I have ever seen. It is within a 5 minute walk of all of the most important historical monuments that Istanbul has to offer. It was sold out when I visited but it felt like I had the whole place to myself. There are many bars that ...

    The stretch of Istanbul between Kabatas and Ortakoy is the preserve of palaces. Dolmabahce Palace, where the last Sultans and even Ataturk lived, is one such palace. The Four Seasons Bosphorus is another. Flaming torches out front proclaim your arrival in this den of luxury. You enjoy the usual amenities of a Four Seasons Hotel here--sumptuous rooms, spa, swimming pool ...

    You can see it from practically everywhere in Istanbul: the tower on Taksim Square with the giant TV on top. The Marmara is the most upscale hotel in the immediate vicinity of Taksim and it's worth the money--if you can afford it. It has the usualy amenties: doorman and valet service, a rooftop swimming pool, a view of both Taksim ...

    Swissotel overlooks the Bosphorus and the neighborhood of Kabatas, including Besiktas stadium. It is also a convenient walk to Nisantasi, one of the wealthiest and most fashionable neighborhoods in Istanbul. Along with the Four Seasons, Swissotel is one of the great foreign hotels in Istanbul. I was able to visit Swissotel on two occasions. First, I spoke at an MBA ...
