What’s important to know
Remember that in cheap hotels in Istanbul:
- They only clean when you ask – and not always well.
- Not all have central heating and air conditioning.
- Small hotels do not have elevators.
- Sometimes there is poor soundproofing.
So read the reviews carefully. A high rating is not always an indicator. Often tourists, especially European, put a good rating not to offend the host.
Still in the reviews met this situation: the hotel in the reservation system, filed the data that the guests supposedly did not come to them, and the system requires tourists to forfeit. In this case, keep the receipts of payment!
In Taksim area it is better not to settle behind the Tarlabashi street and do not walk there in the evening. The reviews write that tourists are harassed by homeless children and Kurds.
When choosing a hotel in Sultanahmet pay attention to exactly where it is located. Some are accessed by steep slopes – it will be difficult for the elderly or with a stroller.

Cheap hotels in Istanbul: Taksim
Apartof – from $30
Where is the best place to stay in Istanbul near Taksim Square? We stayed in this apartment hotel. We stayed in one of the apartments in Taksim Square and at the end of the day we stayed in a hotel that was luxurious, well appointed and comfortable. The room was above and beyond our expectations, warm, cosy, nicely lit and with a great mattress. The apartment has heating and a kitchen. Nice interior, large windows, walls lined with decorative bricks. It is 30 sqm in size. We stayed in a room with a window overlooking the courtyard so we did not hear any noise from Istiklal. Staying in one of our rooms costs from $30 for an hour.

Green Life Hotel – from $25
If you want to rent an apartment in Istanbul to explore the historic part of the city, the colorful Sultanahmet neighborhood is a good solution. We really liked the apartments in this family-run Green Life apartment hotel: cozy, bright, with a kitchenette and a sofa. The owners are wonderful. The location is comfortable, close to Aya Sofia, but you have to go uphill. However, the coolest thing about the hotel is the terrace on the top, where you can have amazing views! We loved meeting sunsets here. The price ranges from $25-35 in the summer depending on the type of apartment. I advise to rent apartments with a sea view!
