Istanbul is one of the must-see European travel hotspots. There is something for everyone, and fortunately the former Constantinople is still a reasonably-priced city. Smart travelers know that being on a budget does not have to mean giving up comfort or service. The Hotel Büyük Keban, in central Istanbul, is a perfect example: a three-star hotel with four-star hospitality and services. All the marvelous attractions of Istanbul’s Historic Peninsula are within walking distance: the Grand Bazaar, the Blue Mosque, the Sultanahmet Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, the Topkapi Palace, the Gulhane Park, the Süleymaniye Mosque and the Beyazit Tower.
