Hotel in Istanbul

Jump to last reply

Hi!

My husband and I are spending 6 nights in Istanbul (first time) and I am torn as to where to stay. I like the idea of being close to the main sights in the Sultanahmet area, but also the idea of being in the Beyoglu or Karakoy area for nightlife/restuarants/cafes. We are in our 30s, fit, and are fairly fast-paced travelers, but not the backpacking type. We enjoy history, food, drinks, soaking in the atmosphere.

I was wondering if booking 2 hotels would be advisable for the amount of time we are spending?

AND what are some hotel recommendations? We are looking to spend in the 200-300ish euro range a night, and a view would be great.

If we do stay in the Beyoglu/Karakoy area, is it still pretty quick to get to Sultanahmet area? Thank you!!

May
