Using public transport...

In the first leg of our trip to Istanbul we will be staying at Barcelo Saray Hotel, Yenicerilier Cad 77.

It seems that there are problems with taking a taxi. Therefore we are thinking of using the public transport. We have the following questions.

1) Is it correct that we should take M1 line of the metro and change to the T1 tram line at Zeytinburum ?

2) Which T1 stop should we get off the tram ?

3) How far (nearly) is the tram stop where we have to get off from our hotel ?

4) Can you please give a near estimate for the duration of the trip from the airport till we reach the hotel ? (We only seek an estimate). By the way our flight should arrive at around 4 in the afternoon. THANKS:

Father-Copenhagen,

1- Yes, take the metro from the airport and change to tram at Zeytinburnu.

2- You should get off at Beyazit stop (Grand Bazaar stop).

3- Th hotel is a couple of minutes walk from the Beyazit stop on the same street.

4- The trip will be approximately 45-50 minutes. So you should be at the airport within 1.5 hours of your arrival, approximately.

good luck,
