  • This restaurant is introduced from the guesthouse has stayed so far was looking for something beautiful kilims lay in the living room. Who is owner of Hamid's mild-mannered, speak a little Japan, while showing some old grim description of the locality and patterns, the price difference between reason and explained politely. Easy-to-buy none convey the warmth of handcrafted one-of price. It was just like design. As was the shop and hear later comes to buyers from overseas and in Japan. Staff was for us turned out pleasantly told him that after briefly showed also other stores around it. You could buy at a price to convince return eventually, several after that, could not forget in this Kilim designs, my favorite things. Thank you, thank you very much. It was up to tell you out of the store and want to think once, but went to see Kilim patchwork shops of the Grand Bazaar is on the Guidebook aside, but too much like and exactly how much I've got and let the voice of the heart or heard the price aggressive, let one person in the room, "I leave me thinking here" light house arrest. Have finally released, clearly saying "I'm sorry, but not to buy" and "pay 50 lire-time detracts. I joke "that was told to bad taste. I would prefer to shop in the Bazaar in a brute force approach you want to take care.

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.
