Where We Are ?
We are in "Beyoğlu", also known as "Pera", which is Istanbul's center for entertainment, nightlife, culture, and shopping.
Beyoglu is live almost 24 hours, which means you can go out relatively safely even at nights. You will have the widest choice of cafes, restaurants, various shops, bookstores .... at your service even at very late hours. The city's longest pedestrian street is just 50 meters away from the hotel.
The hotel's central location makes it easier than elsewhere to reach any point in the city; major historic attractions are less than two kilometers away, the city's best restaurants, entertainment and culture venues are just around the corner, and the major convention centers are less than a kilometer away. Taksim Square which is like the transportation hub of Istanbul, is only 250 meters.
Big tourist attractions in Sultanahmet area beyond the bridge at approximately two kilometers distance, so you may have to take a vehicle to reach there.
Here is a description in Turkish, for taxi dirvers to find our hotel easily:
