Byzantium, Constantinople, Istanbul – by any name, the city that both unites and separates Europe and Asia is the epitome of cosmopolitanism. For your upcoming trip to the heart of Turkey, consider staying in the Old City – where all of the marvelous experiences of Istanbul are at your fingertips. The Hotel Büyük Keban is right in the midst of it all: cuisine, architecture, music, history, cinema, fashion, and culture. Nearby are countless must-see marvels, such as the Grand Bazaar, the Blue Mosque, the Sultanahmet Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, the Topkapi Palace, the Gulhane Park, the Basilica Cistern, and the Beyazit Tower.
Experience Istanbul History from the Heart of the Old World
As the historical seat of four great empires – the Roman Empire, the Byzantine Empire, the Latin Empire, and the Ottoman Empire – Istanbul weaves a tale of historical proportions unlike any other metropolis. Owing to its long background of Roman domination, Constantinople was a center of Christianity – yet also an important bastion of Islamic faith throughout the centuries of Ottoman caliphates. Its cultural importance in music, cuisine, fashion and culture has always been underscored by its unique geography – it literally is the crossroads of two continents meeting.
A visit to Istanbul is always is a venture into the new and unexpected – you will trace the footsteps of Ottoman sultans and Roman emperors as you explore the city’s back alleys and hidden corners, unknown cafes and secret passages. One moment you are enjoying a strong, sweet Turkish coffee and reveling in the gorgeous panoramic views over the Bosphorus, and then next discovering an exquisite architectural gem at the top of one of the city’s rolling hills. No two visits are ever the same to this remarkable and metamorphosing capital.
