  • This was an interesting little zoo. Clearly a lower budget affair, but a fair mix of animals. There was no English on the map or signs, except for the name of the animals. The staff also did not speak...  more »
  • The wonderful Zoo, which is long enough to reach from the tourism of Istanbul. Zoo visitors watched on us as on some strange animals-except for us Europeans it was not. Liked otters-young, playful, stayed with them on hands/paws. Lovely Jackal

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.
