Advantages of Staying at Hotel Büyük Keban

Hotel Büyük Keban has many advantages over other hotels in Istanbul. First, our location in the Old City makes life infinitely easier for our guests. The Old City is where you will find many of the main historical attractions, such as Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. You have only to step outside our door to reach many of the top sights that brought you to Istanbul.

Should you require travel other than by foot, our Concierge can call you a reputable taxi and make sure you understand the price. Our Concierge can also arrange an airport shuttle service for you (pick-up and drop-off), so you never have to worry about dealing with directions or traffic to and from the hotel.

Our staff is fluent in multiple languages and here to assist you with whatever else you need. We can make recommendations for dining, advise you about mosque etiquette, arrange a guided tour or set up a shopping trip to the Grand or Spice Bazaar.
