#15 of 19 in Neighborhoods in Istanbul
Cağaloğlu is a quarter located in the Fatih district of Istanbul, Turkey. Much of the publishing industry in Istanbul is located in Cağaloğlu. It is also famous for its ancient hamam, or Turkish bath, known as the Cağaloğlu Hamam.NameThe quarter gets its name from Cigalazade Yusuf Sinan Pasha (Cağaloğlu Yusuf Sinan Paşa; c. 1545–1605), an Ottoman admiral and statesman of Genoese descent, as well as a member of the influential Cicala family of Genoa. The original name Cigalaoğlu (meaning "of the Cigala (Cicala) family", or literally "Cigala-son" as a Turkified surname) eventually turned into Cağaloğlu through the course of centuries.

C ağal m's many tourist attractions Iran Consulate, the province, jewelry, carpet, Mosque and other historical buildings of the past gives way. I have to walk around to see around.

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.
