Istanbul: Readers' Tips, Recommendations and Travel Advice

Istanbul is one of the most interesting cities to visit and there is so much to see you would ideally need at least a five-day break.

Flying in to Istanbul Atatürk Airport means a 30-minute journey into the city centre.

The big sites, such as the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Cistern and the Grand Bazaar, are all within 10 minutes' walk of the hotel and the hotel's rooftop terrace provides a wonderful view over the Bosporus and Marmaris Sea.

A short tram journey takes you to the waterfront at Eminonu where a day's ferry cruise is available up the Bosporus to the entry to the Black Sea and calling at various stops on either side for around £10.
