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.

  • Sokullu Mehmet Pasha Mosque was designed by architect Mimar Sinan in 16 th century...
  • Great and special place, there is 3 pieces of the black stone ( al hajar al aswad )
  • There are 4 small pieces of Hajar al aswad ( black stone ) in this mosque .
  • This is such a special & sacred place we were here almost 3 years ago & by chance our OBA hotel was 20 seconds away from this wonderful mosque....This masjid is very close to the blue mosque but off the tourist trail. Once we learned the history & discovered the 3 black stone fragments from the holy kabba in mecca, we would visit daily & touch & kiss these stones, mashallah & subhanallah
  • Such a beautiful 15th century mosque. The courtyard flooring and columns are entirely covered in marble. The tile work is more intricate than dare I say it the Blue Mosque. The imam looked as if he came from the time when the mosque was built but he had the most enchanting voice. No crowds as it is strictly a mosque not a tourist attraction. But you can still visit, just keep picture taking to a minimum.
