Can anyone help me?
Will be in Istanbul for 3 nights in January with my wife.
We have quotes from the above hotels and are not sure where to stay.
My gut reaction is to stay at the Ararat (only 135 euros for 3 nights, cash price) since it is cheap, well located, has great views and a fire in the winter. Only doubt is abou some negative reviews here on trip advisor.
If not, Empress Zoe and Dersaadet cost 189 euros (cash price for 3 nights) but seem a little more luxurious.
Do I splash out on the hotel or save the 54 euros and put them towards a really special dinner?
Any and all advice is appreciated.
