Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside the elegant New Mosque (opened in 1665). Nearby, the famed Galata Bridge offers pedestrian access to urban delights across the river in Istanbul’s more residential and contemporary neighbourhoods, while the must-see sights of Sultanahmet are but a leisurely stroll away.
In my opinion, this is one of the most underrated and overlooked locations in Istanbul. Built with an Ottoman baroque style, there’s a serene beauty to this mosque.
Arrive in-between prayer times, and you can find it almost empty.
While the interior is not as ornate as the Blue Mosque, it’s certainly beautiful. I personally found it a much more...
Looking back on our trip to Istanbul, we valued our time near the water. Galata bridge was closed temporarily to traffic. Instead, we strolled beneath (after a scenic boat ride) and ate freshly grilled fish from vendors there. Within a short timeframe of days, it wasn’t worth doing many tours. Although not far from Galata bridge, Topkapi palace was far...
We been this place with my girlfriend.we had shrims in better for start and after we had a sultan kèbab. Very tasty and delicius foods.atmosfer and music very nice. We will come again. Perfect service with enes hands. Thanks guys
Local restaurant very close from the Spice Market. It called my attention because both the meat grill and the oven where they make the bread are open. They offer Turkish food at very reasonable prices, and portions are good for main dishes. I had the best chicken skewer I’ve eaten, it was so good that I even repeated.
Don’t miss this place. The coffee is superb no matter which type you go for, Turkish or whatever the huge menu or the baristas are offering. Great tasts and very good and friendly staff!
Located not far from the busy spice marked Egypthian Bazaar.
Don’t let the ground floor atmosphere and cramped space deter you. Go upstairs to the second floor!!
Our private guide took us here to try the “Lamb Soup.” It was so excellent that we returned the next day!
Service is efficient, quick, and very polite. Lots of locals come here. It’s a bit hard to find, but worth the effort....

First time in Turkey. Stayed 4 nights. Had a comfortable and very pleasant stay. Hotel is super clean and all staff are super friendly, helpful and courteous. Adnan Kanat at reception in particular ensured our every need was met and gave us great advice about buying and getting to places. Was particularly impressed with cleanliness and facilities in the room....
Loved this hotel so much! Perfectly placed for walking to all the sights, Grand Bazaar, Agia Sophia, Spice Bazaar, Basillica etc.
Beautiful old building revamped with funky decor. Beautiful room, everything spotlessly clean. Every little thing catered for - toiletries, mini bar, coffee/tea, and large comfy bed.
Lovely little bar for late night drinks.
But best of all - the...
"A wonderful journey with a stuffing view on Bosphorus"

The central location of the hotel: it is located between the tourist areas (Sultanahmet and Ayosofia), and modern Istanbul (Galata and Taksim Square). The hotel is a 2-minute walk from the Suleymane mosque, and close to the shops of Eminonu where you can embark on the Asian side or simply take a stroll on the Bosphorus, the Golden Horn or...
