TRAVEL DETAILS

We prefer to use the hotels in the Sultanahmet district, where it has the most elegant and touristy atmosphere and where we will not depend much on the traffic of the city.

But this neighborhood is known for its hotels that are old-fashioned buildings and now function as hotels.

So the problem with these hotels is that it has half-tight rooms. But as our goal is to get to know the city and the culture then we will stay in the hotel room just to spend the night.

That is why we prefer it. We have the modern hotels also only that are a little distant. Then when selecting your hotel take into consideration and we advise, please. So that we select a good hosting option where we can combine already before hiring the package.
