The place to be if you like shopping and good food!

If you like great little restaurants and great shops, that´s the place to be. Modern, full of people all day long! Really loved it!

We stayed in Cihangir and I wouldn't recommend any other part of Istanbul. Not more than 5-45 minutes walk from all major attractions or connecting points. Safe and quiet (if you're not on some major road, of course).

well beyoğlu is a tricky place to visit as a tourist, terrible taksim square with an empty concert hall, hotel construction sites everwhere, terrible walkways, few bookstores (recommend mephisto) The best part of BEyoğlu is you hear music everwhere anytime of the day if you can ignore the crowds of course; street musicians, türkü houses, rockbars. Of course crowd may... More

Strolling the Istiklal street is a perfect place for people watching. I heard that 2 million people walk through Istiklal a day. Also the old tram goes all the way from Taksim untill to the end of the Istiklal. So it is a perfect place to stop for a while and watch the people go by. But you should deffinately... More

Came upon it by accident on visit to the museum. Amazing view of the castle, very upmarket and a bit pricey, but worth the visit.
