  • Amazing get away from the crazy city environment of Istanbul. Great walking path. Amazing views. Lots of fresh air. Close to the city. Best way to get the forest walking trail is by car.  more »
  • I went out to the arboretum on a rainy day and walked through the forest almost alone. The dense trees and the bright green foliage are great. There aren't many signs or maps in the area and I had tro...  more »
  • I have been there several times. It is great especially in spring. You can enjoy the fresh air and silence there in the week days. It has a walking and running path which is about 6 kilometers  more »

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.
