Lively Istanbul is where Asia meets Europe, both culturally and geographically. This huge city has both a fascinating history and a modern nightlife scene. Our hotels in Istanbul are an excellent base for a great holiday.
We have some great hotels in Istanbul for you. With a wide choice of 3 to 5* properties, there is something to suit all budgets.

Book one of our hotels in Istanbul's historic centre and you'll be ideally located to visit the major attractions. We recommend starting your sightseeing at the majestic Hagia Sophia. Commissioned as a cathedral in the 6th century, this stunning piece of architecture is now a mosque.
The Blue Mosque is also a popular destination. With its stunning tiers of domes and six elegant minarets, it's worth the journey from one of our hotels. Istanbul has some fascinating museums too, such as the Topkapi Palace Museum and the Turkish and Islamic Art Museum.
Avid shoppers staying in our hotels will be pleased to hear that there is nothing like shopping in Istanbul. The Covered Bazaar, also known as the Grand Bazaar, should always be your first stop. The biggest of its type in the world, it has 65 labyrinthine streets with over 4,000 shops, baths, mosques and teahouses. You can buy anything here.
Istanbul is also full of great restaurants. Turkish meals are traditionally served as a succession of small tasting plates in restaurants called meyhane. Kebabs, baklava, stuffed vegetables and wraps are all popular in Turkish cuisine, as are traditional simit bagels and borek pastries. Ask the staff at your hotel where to find the best meyhane restaurants.
