Comparing Locations for Accommodations


I will be in Istanbul for 4 days next July. I currently have a hotel, which is refundable, booked at this location: Kumbaraci Yokusu No 66, Istanbul 34435, Turkey.

However, friends of mine who will be there a week before told us about an accommodation that they are using which is significantly less expensive and located in Karaköy: Şimal Sokak, Istanbul, Istanbul Province 34200, Turkey

According to google maps, it is about a 20 minutes walk. I am just wondering if there is a certain advantage of one location over the other. The latter has a beautiful view of the river and is $400 cheaper for the duration of our stay.

Any information you have is much appreciated.

hereishome, Şimal sokak is at Asmalimescit: "http://goo.gl/maps/qHY9F", but it is a good location. Take that one it is very close to Istiklal street and you say is cheaper.

Thank you for your advice, enigma. It sounds like it is a central location--and it is always nice to save money that will go towards another part of our trip; looking forward to this short trip to Istanbul!

Happy Travels!
