I'm traveling next week to Istanbul for 5 nights. The best value quotes I've got from 3 hotels I've narrowed it down to:
Conrad Hilton Istanbul. $170. Kind Bosphorus View w/Breakfast
Marmara Pera. $182. Pera View Room. Includes Breakfast and VAT.
Pera Palace. $182, Pera View Room. Includes Breakfast, excludes VAT.
Any suggestions? I think the Conrad is a bit out of the way from things, but a water view would be great too! The Pera Palace has all the charm and history. And the Marmara includes VAT as well making it more economical.
