Looking for some good leather shops we stumbled upon Prens leather and didn't regret it at all. The shop owner was an master salesman. We tried three jackets and in the blink of an eye we bought them all. He knew exactly which size and style will suit us the best and did a great job. Beside that, the leather... More

If you like the hard sell with fashion parade & drinks, this is the place. Good quality but better value in the old city. Be careful you don't get swept up in the big discounts offered, the price starts way too high anyway. I enjoyed it but glad I waited. Nice staff.

Dear j b, Thank you so much for sharing your experience on Tripadvisor. Well; as an information, we sell only “Turkish” leather. There are so many different leather qualities in this market and in parallel with this, the relationship between value and quality differs. We take your opinions seriously and we are glad that you have realized our high quality.... More

Really had a delightful experience shopping at Prens. I read the reviews from TripAdvisor and sure enough, the owner "Dilek" was very nice. All 6 of us purchased our leather jackets from Prens and we are all happy. Mine was custom made, I told her what a wanted, a black leather trench, she measured me, ask me the details and... More

In my opinion, this store is the best in Istanbul. Great models, nice prices (if you know how to bargain). But first of all, staff. So nice people. Wonderful atmosphere. I bought the great leather jacket for my wife. And next time I will come to them for my own.

The quality of stuff in this shop is good to very good, and I am sure it's a genuine leather. The only thing the people in that shop are so over nice and extremely clingy. They will keep distracting you with cookies and and asking you personal questions and every time you try to leave the shop they will provide... More

I have no knowledge about leather, not to say about Turkish leather. I was told that turkish leather is one of the must buy item in Turkey. Hence, I need a reliable shop, buy with a peace of mind. Prens has lots of design, they do good recommendation from design, fitting and your budget as well. Being honest to them... More

I did love this place; the staff were excellent and the products good. But I was saddened that, after about three months, the hidden pocket buttons (magnets) came adrift and after less than a year the inside of one of the sleeves has dropped (so it hangs out beneath the cuff). Given the price of the jacket (about USD 500)... More

Staying in Grand Bazaar

Neighborhood Profile
Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside the elegant New Mosque (opened in 1665). Nearby, the famed Galata Bridge offers pedestrian access to urban delights across the river in Istanbul’s more residential and contemporary neighborhoods, while the must-see sights of Sultanahmet are but a leisurely stroll away.
