Beyoglu is a must in Istanbul. Its location is very easily reachable as it is very close to Sultanahmet and Eminonu square (just cross the Galata bridge and you are in Beyoglu; if you want to get to Istiklal street without climbing the hill which can be quite tiring, you can take a funicular right from the end of the...

Every city has its own special spots. Beyoglu is one of them in hudge istanbul. You can observe and experience what you want at that moment. BUT! The fantastic part is sometimes you may experience what you do not expect which makes you high there... Listen me and walk around Beyoglu... And write your moments here. I also wonder. ;)

At the Beyoglu square you can get into the Galata Mevlevihanesi museum, walk among the shops and stalls, or get to the famous istiklal street by taking a Tram from Beyoglu. The are is full of street museums, shops and restaurants, make sure to visit this place at least once

Beyoğlu still has many things to offer to its visitors with its very rich cultural and historical places.Due to its very central and good location,anybody coming to Istanbul is more or less passing through this location to see some most important sights of the city.İf you have enough time,strongly recommend you to reserve a full day for this location and...

This was the first time I stayed in Beyoglu - Taksim Square area & I plan to stay again when I next go to Turkey. It's a great area where there are always things to to, go out to eat, bars etc... The place is always buzzing & full of life with many tourists as well as Turkish people around.

While Sultanamet is the prime district to visit while in Istanbul, Beyoglu is perfect for an extended stay. Easily accessible by the Galata Bridge by foot or the T1 tram from Aksaray going towards Kabatas, this charming neighborhood is the pulse of the city. While Sultanamet may have the landmarks and history, Beyoglu has the culture, people, food, and activities... More

Nice area to choose the hotel you will be staying overnight. European influences in the architecture,but local after all; there are plenty of restaurants and bars and not as many tourists as in Sultanahmet; do not miss walking along the narrow streets around the Galata Tower and the beautiful passages (especially Cicek Passaji!)...
