I'm a 40ish female traveling solo to Istanbul for the first time in the fall. I've been researching hotels and have narrowed it down to a few- Hanedan, Grand Peninsula and Kaftan. They're all centrally located, look good (online, that is) and within my budget.
Berurier told me that Grand Peninsula is quiet- very appealing as I'm a light sleeper when in a strange bed.
Other qualities I'm looking for are- clean, friendly and decent bathroom amenities...the ladies will understand :) Airport transfers are a definite plus
Any info would be appreciated
