where to stay on Turkish coast, in Istanbul?

Jump to last reply

Hi there,

My husband and I are planning a 2 week trip to Greece and Turkey. We are planning on taking a ferry from the greek isles to a spot on the Turkish coast (Kusadasi, I believe - any advice on booking ferries would be greatly appreciated!) and would like to spend three or four nights somewhere near there.

The only place we know we want to see is Ephesus, but I'm not sure if people actually stay there, or stay in a town nearby? I would love recommendations.

After that we are flying to Istanbul for another 3 or 4 nights (should we spend the extra night on the coast or in Istanbul?) and are also looking for a hotel there. I would like to be near the Blue Mosque, and one thing I would really like is to have a hotel with a balcony so we can hear the call to prayer. Looking for someplace with tons of charm - not a sterile chain hotel. We can spend up to $300 per night on hotels. Thanks so much in advance for your help!
