Istanbul

Istanbul, where east meets west, is a wonderful city to visit and with more great hotels in Istanbul than ever before, you're certain to find the one that's perfect for you. There's so much to do in Istanbul - why not take the Bosphorus ferry for a great view of one of the world's busiest waterways? You'll see numerous yalis or fabulous residences, mosques and palaces as well as riverside parks where you can hop off. The Haghia Sofia is one of Istanbul's most iconic buildings and the exquisite mosaics and domed chambers are breathtaking. The Galata tower was built in 1348 and restored in the 1960's. Ignore the awful nightclub and restaurant and head right to the viewing platform for spectacular views over the city. Whatever appeals to you, from fine dining, great nightlife and excellent shopping and accommodation, you'll be sure to find it in Istanbul, and with the right apartment or hotel you'll have a memorable break.

The Istanbul Four Seasons hotel is located in an old prison building. However there's nothing austere or punitive about this hotel, apart from possibly the rates. If you can afford the very best, it's the height of 5 star luxury in the heart of the Old city. The A'Jia is a chic and modern boutique hotel that is aimed at those looking for a great mid priced option, while the Richmond Hotel enjoys a superb location on Istiklal Caddesi, one of the city's premier shopping and nightlife streets. Perhaps an apartment break is what you had in mind. Choosing an apartment in Istanbul allows you lots of scope and you can rent your dream apartment from the owners or through an online apartment rental site. If you're on a more limited budget, try the Devman Hotel, which though cheap is well run and clean and just happens to be on one of the most trendy streets in the city.

From the perfect apartment, to the 5 star glamour of some of the top hotels in Istanbul, to the cheap but charming budget rate hotel which is a real find - Istanbul has it all.
