Bus from Yenikapi

Hi can a local advise please, I want to catch the Havatas bus from the airport, I think the terminus stop is at Ido, Fatih YeniKapi. Can I walk to the bustop just near there (Yenikapi Hareket) and get on any bus and hope it will take me along Kennedy to the stop below Agia Sophia. Would it then be walkable (no large bags) to Garden House Hotel? Does anyone know the bus numbers that will be ok? Many thanks

Hi krabikrazy,

Havataş airports buses do not go to Yenikapı (they only go from Yenikapı to the airport and Taksim one way) http://havatas.com/en/coach.aspx?i=6

In order to get to Sultanahmet where your hotel is located at by the public transportation, you'll need to take the metro from the airport and leave the train at Zeytinburnu station where you change over to the tram and get off at Sultanahmet station. To use the public transit in Istanbul you need an Istanbulkart or tokens/tickets. To buy the former, use the vending machines marked as Istanbulkart which accepts your credit card and lira banknotes and to buy the latter use the vending machines marked as Jetonmatik which accepts only lira coins. The jetons(token) for metro and trams are different and each costs 3 lira.

Hope this helps,

Borus

krabikrazy, Take the the Taksim Havatas bus from the airport but get off at Aksaray. And get on the tram at Aksaray and get off the tram at Cemberlitas and walk to your hotel. Here is the route. "http://goo.gl/maps/H0d2W". It is a 10 minutes walk.
