“Levent district”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2012

Levent is a business district in istanbul and sports all the high end shopping malls like Kanyon, Metrocity AVM... The best part is the travel, from Taksim or Sultanahmet, in the metro all the way to Levent. The metro station opens directly in the metrocity mall. Overall its a pure business place, the dining is high end, and the malls were too expensive. I got bored of the place after a little while.

A one hour trip to this district in the whole stay should be more than enough. Metrocity mall however has some reasonable shopping places. My wife highly recommends the jewelry store "Six" which is right before the entrance of the MetroCity mall.

“The bussiness site of Istanbul”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

Levent can be accessed very easily by metro and is the center of Istanbul's finest brands. Here you can find many big malls, but I can say that the prices are ok.

“City life”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2012

Shopping is not the most important thing for me. If is it for you, go to Levent. Akmerkez, Kanyon, MetroCity malls; plenty of traffic and fine dining.

“Poor”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2012

There is actually nothing there, except 2-3 malls. One of the most terrible ones is Canyon, especially when it is raining or it is cold. Even though this mall got an architectural award, they found out later that it was impossible to be there as the mall is half open to all weather conditions
