Hotels in Istanbul

There are several good hotels in Istanbul, located in the city center, on the Bosphorus, or near the airport. Some of the five star and deluxe hotels are international chains and some are local chains, all offering the best service during your stay in this magnificent city. You can also choose four star superior hotels during your stay for a better budget.

Besides five star hotels, there are many special category hotels too. These are usually restored old buildings and decorated in the traditional Ottoman way. They have a limited number of guest rooms and are very stylish. Some of them are along the Bosphorus and some located in the old city center.

Istanbul has over 90.000 bed capacity divided in all categories. In 2008, there were about 7 million tourists visited the city. and in 2009 it's expected to be around 8 million. In 2010 Istanbul will be the Cultural Capital of Europe therefore over 10 million visitors are expected. New hotels are in construction and these will top the bed capacity up to 120-140 thousand until then.
