The wife and I will be in Istanbul from 5th to 9th March 2007. We are not in the 5* mode of accomodation but just like warm, friendly, clean,comfortable and well positioned places. I have a few hotels in mind. Dersaadet Hotel, Sarnic Hotel, Uyan Hotel and Nena Hotel.
I seem to be swayed to Dersaadet Hotel. I am in my sixties and my wife late fifties. I hope it is enough to get around places. We will be spending our anniversay in Istanbul. I wish we had money to splash out but sadly we don't have.
Is Istanbul regarded as an expensive city? I know it is all relative and according to how much one earns etc. Any example of prices?
many thanks, Peter
