Lodging near Ataturk Airport in Istanbul

Jump to last reply

I will be arriving into IST around 1700 (5:00 pm) and departing from IST the next day at 13:30 (1:30 pm). I have will have been to Istanbul in the recent past, so I am looking for something more than likely frequented by locals rather than tourists.

Rather than your typical airport hotel lodging, is there a neighborhood or area around Ataturk Airport with quaint hotels or B&Bs in a walking neighborhood with shops, restaurants, cafes, bars, etc. I have seen reference to Florya and Bakirkoy, but I don't know know anything about these areas.

Please advise if there are any locales that I should consider, and more particularly, if there is a particular hotel or B&B I should contact.

Thanks in advance for all responses to this post.
