Reviewed 4 weeks ago

The Eminonu Square is the best square in Istanbul in terms of View to the bosphorus, Shops, Close to main Souks (Sultanahmad shopping Street), Kiosks selling chestnut, Corn... . From there you can grab a ferry to do the bosphorous cruise and to visit Dolmabache Palace.
You can stay there as much as you want and you will be amazed by this place.
A must when in Istanbul.

Istanbul is full of fabulous neighborhoods and Eminonu is right up there. Great for walking, shopping, eating (it is Istanbul after all!). We stayed at a small wonderful hotel close to so many attractions: Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern, Topkapi, Gagia Sofia etc. We just walked and walked. Fabulous. People are generally helpful in spite of possible language barriers. If we felt lost we would show a map and we and they would just point out where to go.

The square can get very busy with lots of action. Plenty to take in and lots of food options. Take a seat and watch the action
