Istanbul Hotels

Jump to last reply

There are many 4* hotels on TripAdvisor in the $150-$200 a night price range (we'd like to keep it to that, as we need two rooms).

We do not need "services" -- concierge is completely unnecessary, and while room service is nice, it's not needed -- but we do like stylish decor. What's imperative? Cleanliness, a great bed, a great shower, a pleasant lobby and staff. If breakfast is included, all the better (I don't know if that's typical in Istanbul or not -- it was in Egypt and Southeast Asis, but of course, is not in the USA or most of Europe).

By way of example, in Hanoi, we absolutely loved the Elegance Diamond (3* with 5* service!), but in Hong Kong, we thought our room at the well-priced YMCA, which is highly recommended, was in need of refurbishment and updating. The Holiday Inn in La Mesa, CA was fine, but the Holiday Inn in Burbank looked like it hadn't been updated since 1955.

Generally speaking, we're "Marriott", not "Four Seasons" (although the latter is nice for the right price!).

We'll be in Istanbul in June, and would like to stay near a metro, and near the Sultanahmet or Taksim areas.

I look forward to your suggestions.
