    How many times have you not here although I didn't pay much attention. Banks from Galata Tower you use this when you go walk stairs. I really made a nice aesthetic and architecture with beautiful works.

  • Yes it is just stairs (albeit helix ones), however if you are walking up to Galata and Istiklal from the Goldern Horn then it is a "must take" route to indulge in another selfie moment. My suggestion is you start at the ferry terminal and wind your way up through the myriad of hardware shops and eat a fish sandwich along the way. Great place.
  • Underwhelming, looks better in photos. It's worth climbing to the top where you'll reach a nice small street with cafes.
  • It is a staircase, but an interesting one, with a history. Cool for photoshoots.
  • iconic
  • Wrong position. Its actually located at Galata Kulesi Sokağı.

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.
