Re: Short visit to Istanbul

Frankly one of the things that curbed my enthusiasm for visiting was the apparent inordinate transfer time Ataturk airport to city centre

Have been told in can take up to 2 hours

Rubbish...if you don't arrive at rush hour and you had a friend to pick you up it's no more than half an hour.

Re: Short visit to Istanbul

For those with out friends and u have to take a cab always ask to go via the E5 and not the TEM if your heading to the city centre.
Taxi drivers will not like it,but it will cost you a lot less than circling the city on the TEM.

Prices coming up at over 100 a night for me in Nov this year. How do you get this hotel for 20 a night Angela?

Re: Short visit to Istanbul

Wow, has that gone up in price since last year or what?! We only paid 20 each b and b there a year ago. You say it is 100 a night but I have found it for 89 a night = https://www.booking.com/hotel/tr/per...s=1&#hotelTmpl -and-

80 a night here = https://uk.hotels.com/ho361818/?q-ch...m-0-children=0 - and -

JUST 65 PER NIGHT HERE = https://www.agoda.com/hotel-el-blanc...1-47e72330d7d9

If you were to book El Blanco Hotel next month for, say, 23rd to 24th February 2018 ... then it is only 23 per night b and b each with TripAdvisor = https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_...-Istanbul.html

And the hotel for 1 night from 4th to 5th April 2018 would be 30 per night b and b.
