How to Mix Business and Pleasure in Istanbul

How to Mix Business and Pleasure in IstanbullotiIf you are visiting Istanbul for work, there’s no way you can pass on visiting at least a few of its most remarkable highlights, or experiencing a few of its greatest charms. One important tip – stay in the Old City on the European Peninsula, where all of Istanbul’s remarkable historical eras are fully on display, so even if you’re busy with work, you can easily slip out for a quick visit to the city or a walk around the wonders of the neighborhood.

Total Comfort and Convenience in a Central Location

The Hotel Büyük Keban is located in central Istanbul’s Old City, just steps away from all the best Istanbul has to offer: fascinating art and architecture, enchanting music and cinema, gorgeous fashion and delicious food. We are an affordable, comfortable, and convenient hotel within walking distance of all the most amazing historical landmarks: the Grand Bazaar, Gulhane Park, the Blue and Sultanahmet Mosques, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, the Basilica Cistern, and the Beyazit and Galata Towers. So when you have a morning free before meetings or an afternoon off, you can easily slip over and visit some of the most remarkable landmarks, museums, and sights of the city.

Work by Day, Explore by Night

Istanbul is famous for the exceptional variety of its architecture, the quality of its cuisine, and the fascinating mix of culture that its history represents. All the interwoven strands of its historical development are reflected in the magical Old City on the Historic Peninsula. Even if your business obligations take up the whole day, you’ll come back to the Historic Peninsula and be able to appreciate historical jewels in the neighborhood by night. If you head out for dinner on your own or with colleagues, the plethora of delightful restaurants and charming cafes in the neighborhood around the Hotel Büyük Keban guarantees a delicious culinary experience. Enjoy a walk along the banks of the Bosphorus, amble around the peninsula and marvel at the Topkapi, or take a stroll around the vibrant neighborhood of Fatih. There are many places to visit around the peninsula or across the Galata Bridge that are still just a short walk from the hotel.

Treat Yourself to Wellness

Just because you’re here on business doesn’t mean you shouldn’t indulge in some wellness treatments outside of work hours. Our inviting lounge offers a selection of refreshments and cocktails, and our elegant Turkish bath, sauna, and jacuzzi allow you to unwind after a long day of meetings. Treat yourself to a good workout in our fitness center, enjoy a traditional Turkish bath and sauna session, or book yourself a healing massage. In the morning, after enjoying our bounteous international and Mediterranean breakfast buffet, head out for a stroll along the Bosphorus and drink a strong Turkish coffee while you take in the breathtaking views across the sparkling straits. There’s no end to what Istanbul offers intrepid explorers, even those here on business.
