Mustafa is the kindest, most informative and passionate store owner, we did not buy anything on this occasion due to a lack of space at home, but still he was kind and informed us all about the various wares the store had to sell, including...More
Mustafa and his equally wonderful assistant were a delight to deal with. We first passed the shop days earlier looking at Mustafa’s hat collection. He gave us a card and suggested we look at his reviews online, which we did. We went back a couple...More
I stumbled into this little place on my last night in Istanbul totally by chance. A rug on the sidewalk outside caught my eye and the excellent English and non-pushy ways of the salesman got me inside. I saw several rugs upstairs and was about...More
Wonderful little store with beautiful selection of rugs. Prices are very fair so need to haggle. Rugs are also packed in a good quality bags if you are taking them home yourself. Mr Cesur and his colleague are very knowledgable about their rugs and their...More

I had never been carpet shopping before and was quite nervous to walk into a shop. After reading some trip advisor reviews I gave Troy Rug a shop. The owner is very friendly, I ended up buying some Kilim pillows from him and he was...More
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
