Which side to stay in Istanbul

Jump to last reply

I'm struggling to decide which side of the Golden Horn to stay in Istanbul. We are 4 adults with a 4 year old child. My and my wife in early thirties and my parents just turned 60. We will be in Istanbul mid-May for 5 nights. We like atmospheric places with history but also like the more authentic, vibrant parts of the places we visit.

I'm getting various apartments / family suites in similar price ranges in both Old Sultanahmet 5-10 mins walking from the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque as well as in Galata/Beyoglu (one apartment is directly on Istikal). While I understand we will have to visit both parts of the city several times during the day, I'm finding it hard to determine which side we would more enjoy staying at.
