Cheap Hotels in Istanbul
Being the most populous city in Turkey, Istanbul is its cultural and financial center. The city is filled with hotels for any budget and taste.
Choose the Taksim area if you are looking for a budget place to stay. It also the area to stay in, if you are looking for shopping and entertainment. Harbiye is the area in the new city on the European side where there are plenty of moderate hotels for budget travelers. Sultanahmet, located in the old city on the European side, is where you can find moderately priced hotels. The western suburbs are where you can find quite pricey hotels.
Prices for hotels in Istanbul range anywhere from €42 to €80 per room per night in a 3-star hotel, right in the middle of the high season. The price does depend on the location of the hotel so you can easily find 2-star hotels which cost the same or even more, but are in a more expensive area.
