If you're traveling to Istanbul, you may have natural concerns about the your safety in such a big city. While it's wise to take precautions when in any large metro area, Istanbul is every bit as safe as cities like Los Angeles or Paris. Staying in a hotel like the Hotel Büyük Keban, where guests' security is a top priority, can also help minimize your risks while away from home. Here are four reasons why Hotel Büyük Keban is one of the safest places to stay in Istanbul.
Istanbul is in the far northwestern corner of Turkey, on the other side of the country from any border turmoil with Syria. Within Istanbul, Hotel Büyük Keban is located in the heart of the Old City, a bustling part of the city frequented by tourists. The area around the hotel is very safe for walking, both day and night, and we are within a few minutes of several populated public transit stations.
Hotel Büyük Keban offers attentive personalized service that benefits your safety as well as your security. Because we are a small boutique hotel, we know our guests, and it's not easy for people who are not staying at the hotel to be there inappropriately. Parts of the hotel, like our Lobby Bar, are open 24/7, so there is staff around at all hours of the day and night.
When you want to leave the hotel, you don't have to be at the mercy of random cab drivers or unknown restaurants. Our Concierge Department can make travel arrangements for you both to and from the airport and around the city. They can also assist you with dinner reservations and sightseeing tours, so you know you're working with trustworthy locals.
Unlike in youth hostels and other hotels, Hotel Büyük Keban offers private rooms with modern security. You can store your belongings in ample closet space. Additionally, each room has its own private bathroom.
If you have valuables with you, you don't have to take them with you when you leave the hotel or worry about them in your room either. Every room is equipped with a personal safe, so you can stash your mobile phone, jewelry or credit cards and keep them protected from theft.
So your loved ones at home know you are safe and sound, there are multiple ways to stay connected from Hotel Büyük Keban. If you have your own laptop computer or mobile device, you can use the free WiFi Internet that comes with every room. If not, we have two computers you can use at any time in our Lobby Internet Corner. These are outfitted with webcams, so you can video chat with friends, family and work colleagues.
