  • This Han has lost much of its originality as many buildings were added to the actual building. With three courtyards and a Shiite mosque in the middle, this Han houses 210 rooms and it was built by th...  more »

  • ***** Right now it's close. ***** Very cool place with a panoramic view, like on the Tower of the Tower of the Wall of Constantinople. But many people, sometimes they spread tea. For the entrance you have to pay the local supervisor - 3-4 TL. Очень крутое место с панорамным видом, как на башне Tower in the wall of Constantinople. Но много людей, иногда разносят чай. За вход надо заплатить местному смотрителю — 3-4 TL.
  • If you need some breathtaking views, just go visit this place. You will see Istanbul from top. Just follow the maps and meet Mr. Mehdi. We pay 1 Tl for each person.
  • Select a Good Sunny day before visiting this place :) its amazing to see in daylight as well as in the dark.
  • Old and historical building with perfect view of bosphorus
  • You want one memorable photo from Istanbul that not many people have? This is the place to go to. Access is kinda shady, dont go alone. Also opens after 13h.

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.
