Perhaps the most enchanting city we have ever visited, Istanbul is one of the largest and most populated ones too. We know from personal experience that choosing where to stay in cities of that size can be rather difficult. Even though we spent only 5 days in the city, we managed to get a clear picture of the best places to stay in Istanbul. Therefore, we decided to write this guide so as to help all of you who plan a trip to this city of magic make the right choice. Both in terms of neighbourhoods and hotels.
