Best Place to Stay Near The Old City in Istanbul

If you are traveling to Istanbul, whether for business or pleasure, one of the best things about your trip will be feeling like you’re really immersed in the city’s culture and history. You also want lodging that is easy to reach and conveniently located. Here are a few reasons why you should make Hotel Büyük Keban, located in the heart of Istanbul’s Old City, your boutique hotel of choice whenever you visit this exciting Turkish destination.

Simple for Logistics

Your first concern when arriving in a foreign city is often how to get from the airport to your hotel. Hotel Büyük Keban is quite close to Istanbul Atatürk Airport, which many people use for the final leg of their flights. Our Concierge Department is happy to help you with your ground transport from the airport to make your arrival in Istanbul hassle-free.

Our location in Istanbul also makes it convenient to travel around the city. We are less than 200 meters from the Vezneciler Metro Station and just 500 meters from the Aksaray Tram Station, where you can access public transit. A brief stroll takes you to the Yenikapi Underwater Metro Station, the ideal transportation hub to visit the Asian side of Istanbul.

A quick cab ride puts you at the city’s hottest bars and nightclubs, but you can also walk out the door and visit some of the world’s top sights on foot. This is ideal if you are traveling with kids or with elderly people who want to be in close proximity to their activities. Whenever you’ve had enough sightseeing for a while, simply pop back to Hotel BüyükKeban for a nap, a refreshment at our 24/7 Lobby Bar or a bath at our traditional Turkish hammam.

Close to Historical Sights and Attractions

Being in the heart of the peninsula that contains Istanbul’s Old City means you won’t miss a thing during your visit. With wonders like Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque so close by, your schedule and time to explore won’t be eaten up by transit and waiting for rides. You’ll have plenty of time to leisurely enjoy the history and artistry that makes Istanbul unique.

If you have shopping to do, you couldn’t be in a better location. Both the Grand Bazaar and Spice Bazaar are in the Old City too. You don’t have to worry about carrying parcels all day; simply head back to the hotel with your finds, then return to the bazaars when you are rested enough for more exotic bargain hunting.

Of course, if you just want to sit back and soak up the flavor of Istanbul, literally and figuratively, there’s no better place than one of the Old City cafes. You can enjoy an authentic Turkish meal or coffee while watching the world go by.
