  • Istanbul, a city of approximately 25 million residents, spread across two continents is just a little to large to see in only three weeks, almost to large to figure out where to start. Fortunately we ...  more »
  • We did a tour of four days with Before during which we visited beautiful (Capadoccia, Ephesus, Pamukkale) places... and spent good moments with your family. Everything was well organized, tickets, transportation, guides and hotels. Nothing to say (car, hotel, hot air balloon, guide) services.

Where to stay in Istanbul

The bustling downtown core of old Istanbul is the popular choice among tourists wanting a short walking distance to the city's biggest attractions. Here you'll find hostel-style accommodations and reasonably priced and traditionally decorated hotels, as well as bed and breakfasts and inns with views overlooking the sea. Though often the most affordable, accommodations in the old city can be very overrun with tourists and street solicitors. If you seek a more relaxed stay, consider lodging near Taksim Square. This new, trendy neighborhood is a short 15-20 minute ride from the old city, but puts you closer to restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. Though the newer area of the city is a bit more upscale, you'll also find moderately priced hotels and some hostels. Look for luxury hotels in the western suburbs close to the airport, overlooking the banks of Bosphorus.
