We talk about the popular place to stay during Istanbul travel in this guides.A tram line runs through Sultanahmet and public transport is plentiful,connecting the district with other tourist attractions further afield.Another popular place to stay is across the Galata Bridge in the Beyoğlu and Taksim districts,these are both lively entertainment areas in the center of modern Istanbul.Below are some highly-rated hotels in convenient locations for sightseeing:
Buy yourself a glass lamp
The colourful glass lamps you’ll see hanging in almost every establishment in the city make a great souvenir to take back home.If you are looking for a bargain on these,I suggest you try purchasing them outside the Grand Bazaar and away from the main touristy areas;you’d be surprised at how drastically the prices drop.A medium sized lamp should run you$15-20 USD.
Dine with the best view of Istanbul
If you want a restaurant with a great view that won’t break your wallet,I recommend Hamdi Restorant.The 180-degree views showcase the Süleymaniye Mosque,Rüstempaşa Mosque,Galata Tower,and the Bosphorus.Not only that,but they make a delicious köfte and roasted eggplant.
