  • Neat place, great for study with nice cafe, restaurant and good Wi-Fi connection.I'd strongly recommend it...
  • This place is good, until the staff dicriminating certain people to access the museum. They should train the staff better.
  • Salt is a good place to be. Study. Eat. Coffee. Library. Everything is together.
  • Amazing art venue, nestled in a historical building. Great atmosphere and context. Beautiful views also.
  • If you are looking for free co-working space in Istanbul or modern library with tones of exciting books and magazines this is what you need + great cafe with awesome city view, terrace and book store.

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.
