I landed at the Attaturk International Airport and I took the metro here to the Topkapı-Ulubatlı station. I then walked about 1.8km to the hotel. It doesn't go through the best neighborhoods but I felt safe.I got there and was quickly given my room. I asked the hotel receptionist many different things and they always helped me. I never met...

This hotel is in a great location, off the beaten track, in an interesting neighbourhood of Istanbul. Getting to the city center might look far, but if you like a stroll through the neighbourhood, you can travel in by boat which is a lovely start to the day. The hotel has a great restaurant, loved by local food-lovers. We were... More

This oasis of calm in the hurly-burly of Istanbul is the perfect choice for those who relish the peace and quiet of a traditional Istanbul quarter with the additional plus of having not only the world-renowned Chora Church next door but also one of the city's most renowned restaurants, the Asitane, within its walls.

I stayed in two hotels on my recent trip to Istanbul. One was a Western style hotel in the old city and one was the Kariye Oteli near the Chora church. I thought Karyie was great, especially for the money. Staff was friendly and went out of its way to be helpful. One of the receptionists even gave us a... More

Staying in Fener & Balat

Neighborhood Profile
Fener & Balat
This sleepy and rather socially conservative area of Istanbul hosts a small but thriving Jewish community, the patriarchate of the Eastern Orthodox Church, and some of the most beautiful churches and Christian art in the world. Much of what’s most interesting to witness in Fener and Balat sits between the surviving ancient city walls of Constantinople and the serene shores of the Golden Horn. Despite the many splendid sights, historic attractions, stunning vistas, and warm Turkish welcome, the area remains largely unperturbed by the tourist trade that characterizes the atmosphere in nearby Sultanahmet and around the Grand Bazaar. Travelers that like to explore off the beaten track will reap big rewards for making the effort to visit this low-key part of town.
