How to book a hotel in Istanbul?

Jump to last reply

We (kids 7 & 14, and parents) are going to be in Istanbul for 3 days in June. I am looking through the threads here about hotels and sightseeing. I have a few basic questions:

* If we book a room with two beds, can we expect that to be accommodate all of us? What are the standard bed sizes there? Is breakfast normally included? Our frame of reference is mid level US hotels.

* What is the best way to book a hotel room (through a US travel site, through hotel's own site, by calling the hotel, or some other way)?

* Usually we like to go around on our own, but because of the short stay, and because of the advice I have seen on the web, my impression is that we should look into guided tours. Any thoughts?
