Istanbul’s tourist landscape, the up-and-coming Kadikoy district along Istanbul’s Asian coast, is becoming an increasingly popular destination. Avoid the cheaper alternatives, which can be hit or miss, as the relatively high-end hotels are surprisingly affordable for their quality. The Beyoglu district is home to many hotel chains, but if you want to live like a character from an Agatha Christie novel, stay in one of the area’s landmark hotels.
Elite World Europe Hotel
There are 401 air-conditioned rooms available at the conventional Elite World Europe Hotel, which is located near the Yeni Yenebiye Camii mosque. Siyavuspasa Kosku and Kuyumcukent are both within a 10-minute journey of the venue.
The hotel can be found in the neighbourhood of the European Side district.
This hotel caters to affluent guests who come to the city for shopping, shows, and corporate events.
Huge balconies with sights of the Bosporus as well as its bridge grace the 185 guestrooms and suites, which are decorated in a modern cultural Turkish fashion with marble bathrooms. All-day Rocca Brasserie serves Turkish and Mediterranean meals; a pâtisserie serves sweets from the East and West, and cool Isokyo serves Pan-Asian cuisine.
The exterior of this 15-story monolith is unappealing, but the rooftop bar offers some of the best city views. High seats and glass walls create the illusion that you’re flying above the top of buildings and minarets as you sip on your perfectly crafted drink. Beautiful views of the Golden Horn can be enjoyed from the in-room baths in all hotel rooms, but they are especially spectacular in the suites.
Sura Hagia Sophia Hotel
The 5-star Sura Hagia Sophia Hotel is just a short walk from the Blue Mosque in the heart of Istanbul. The Suleymaniye Mosque is just a short drive away from this hotel, which features 231 rooms with scenes of the garden.
While the primitive Sultanahmet district is just 500 m away, the Basilica Cistern is just 0.2 kilometres away.
The Galata Istanbul
The Galata’s Turkish bath dates back to 1720, making it one of the oldest in Istanbul. Located in one of Istanbul’s most vibrant and historic districts, the Galata Tower is just a short walk from the main hotel, which was constructed in the Art Deco style of the era. Each day and night, travellers, locals, and street performers fill the area packed with stores selling traditional Istanbul souvenirs.
The delightful Old City Sultanahmet neighbourhood where the Esans Hotel is situated is the centre of Istanbul’s tourist, shopping, and cultural events. Guests can take a boat across the Bosphorus anywhere around Seraglio Point to the Princes’ Island of Büyükada by sailing or cruising.
In addition to Internet connectivity in public places, a parking garage, valet parking, airport transportation, and round-the-clock room service, Esans Hotel offers a wide range of considerate amenities. There is a breathtaking 180-degree view of the Bosphorus Sea, Prince Islands, and Hagia Sophia from the terrace. Their employees are always cheerful, helpful in arranging activities and have never failed to meet the needs of the guests they have serviced.
