Istanbul with a baby


We're planning a trip in May to Istanbul and will be travelling with our 6 month old daughter. We'd like to stay in Sultanamet area for ease and I think it would be good for us to have some kitchen facilities for sterilising etc. does anyone know of either a hotel that has these facilities or a nice apartment? ideally it would have an area with a tv/ DVD player so if she is asleep at night we can relax too, and even better a terrace. It's our first time travelling with a child so we're a bit nervous and realise that maybe evenings out may not be on the cards, so it needs to be a nice place where we can spend our evenings. Any top tips on travelling with a baby gratefully received!

Thanks in advance

ettielochloch, welcome to Istanbul.

Here's a nice thread on travelling with babies. "tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g293974-i368-k5619…". Finally, it might be best to get an apartment at Sultanahmet. Here are some choices. "https:/…".

Maybe an apartment would be the better option. It´s more spacious, you don´t cling together like in a (small) hotel room, when your baby is sleeping and you have to bridge this time.
