One of the largest and oldest bazaars in the world, Istanbul’s Grand Bazaar calls to mind spectacular visions: waterfalls of elegant fabrics, towering vitrines of treasures, lively vendors in tunics and fezes clamoring to sell their wares, old-world craftsmanship and new-world cosmopolitanism. This amazing and sprawling marketplace was built just after the Ottoman conquest of Constantinople in the mid-1400’s and was the center of the cloth trade. Today, it is so much more: cafes and restaurants dot the serpentine streets on its outskirts and dealers of every imaginable gift and gadget line its arched halls. This is truly a shopping experience like no other on earth. If you would like to find an affordable hotel of quality in the vicinity of the Grand Bazaar, the Hotel Büyük Keban is the place for you.
