Missistanbul recommends Sirkeci Hotel for a citytrip to Istanbul! This fabulous boutique hotel is in the heart of the historical Sirkeci district and within walking distance to all the landmarks.
The first time I rode a taxi in Istanbul was a true adventure! I was holding on tightly the handle above the door while my driver zigzagged 100 miles per hour through the streets…. Since I only spoke a few words of Turkish then, I told my friend sitting next to me to tell the driver that he had to slow down because we wanted to get out of here alive.
