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.

  • The Cathedral of the Holy Spirit is the home of the Bishop of Istanbul and its priests and nuns are all wonderful people--smart, humble, understanding, caring, and kind. They are Silesians of Don Bosco, a world-famous Catholic religious order known for their vocation to help youth and build top-tier schools. This Church does lots of work to help refugees in Istanbul and provide schooling and after school activities for refugee youth, regardless of their faith background. A great way to help refugees is by getting involved with this Parish. English Mass is every Sunday at 10:00am, and the cathedral is always full because the priest is so funny and wise. There are many churches in Istanbul, but the interior of this Church is among the most beautiful and should be seen by everyone interested. All of good will are welcome. The entrance from the west side of Cumhuriyet Caddesi is a small, white metal double door, and the courtyard with the church building is inside there. God bless!
  • Is the church open everyday?
