Just today my girlfriend and I booked a 5+ day trip to Istanbul for the first week of November--couldn't be more excited! That having been said, we still need to find a place to stay, and though I've scoured TripAdvisor for popular hotel picks, I have yet to see one that is price-driven. Being on a very modest budget, we're looking for something in the heart of the city--the Sultanahmet district--that's going to provide us a comfy bed and a private bathroom...and that's really all we require. I've noticed that many hotels supply a nice, modest breakfast, while others also supply a nice view of the sea, and though both perks are welcome, they are not necessary, as we plan to be out and about in the city a majority of the time and can get our fill of both view and food there. A friend of mine has recommended the Cordial House (though reviews are mixed here), and the Stone Hotel--through my own research--sounds pretty nice. I'd say our maximum price per night is $75...though we'd like to aim for something closer to $50. Any suggestions?
