If you are looking for somewhere truly unique to travel to, then Istanbul in Turkey should definitely be right at the top of your list. This is often known as the place where East meets West, as you are able to see almost a perfect combination of those two major world cultures colliding at this place in a harmonious and enjoyable manner. It is definitely something that everyone should see at least once.

Of course, when you go to Istanbul, you will need to ensure that you find a decent hotel. With that in mind, let’s take a look at fifteen of the best hotels in the city that you might want to check out for your next visit to this beautiful and exotic locale.

Days Hotel

Wyndham Hotels is one of the most-trusted brands of hotel in this part of the world, and the Days Hotel in Istanbul is one of their most-loved. If you are looking for some beautiful land and sea views, then you will find it here in one of their 80 rooms. This is a 4-star hotel that really earns its stars.

Kunlun Hotel

If you want to visit the famous historic peninsula, then the Kunlun Hotel will place you in a more or less perfect position from which to do so. Known for its comfortable rooms with interesting designs, the Kunlun is also great for those who want to sample the local cuisine - some of the best eateries are right next door.

Prestige Hotel Old City

For travellers sticking to the European side of Istanbul, the Prestige Hotel in Old City should be your first go-to choice for where to stay. Here you will find a modern-furnished and fancy hotel only 500m from the Grand Bazaar, and a fantastic prestige restaurant that everyone raves about.


Another Wyndham Hotel - and another great contemporary option for anyone wanting to unwind in a little luxury at a fair price. This hotel has a full fitness centre, a well-renowned spa, free wifi, and one of the better hotel restaurants in the city. It is also one of the more affordable options, so a good choice if you’re on a budget.

MB Deluxe Hotel

The location for this hotel is perfect, being situated right in the heart of the Merter Textile Center, itself a popular tourist hotspot, and it is within walking distance of all of the local transportation links that you might need. It also has some of the most economically viable rooms you will come across.

Ibis Istanbul West

You always know where you are with an Ibis, and there is no doubt that they offer some of the best, simplest hotel experiences. The Ibis in Istanbul West is a great all-rounder: affordable yet chic, full of amenities yet stripped-back and minimalistic; it’s well worth a shout if you are staying in the west part of the city.

GLK Premier Sea Mansion Suites & Spa

You can probably guess from the name that this hotel is one of the fancier ones in Istanbul, and it is definitely a good choice if you are looking to be a little pampered on your next holiday. The spa is incredible, the hotel staff offer fantastic hospitality, and it is full of modern comfort with beautiful decor.

A11 Ataşehir Hotel

This is a cute and modern family-run hotel that has been in their hands since 2017, and it’s quickly becoming one of the best-loved hotels in all of Turkey. It is a particular favourite amongst business travellers, so if you are here on business this is one that is going to cater to your specific needs quite well.

The Istanbul Airport Hotel

Sometimes you just want a hotel that is well-situated and can offer you exactly the right location, and that is something you are definitely going to find with the Istanbul Airport Hotel. However, unlike many airport hotels, this one is incredibly affordable, making it a great last-minute choice for the rushed traveller.

GLK Premier Regency Suites & Spa

As with the other GLK Premier option above, you are also going to be pampered here in exactly the same way, with yet another spa that you are absolutely going to love spending time in. It also has a stunning terrace that will take your breath away.

Adela Hotel

If you want a simple yet modern room, free wifi, and all the necessary mod-cons for a good price, you don’t really need to look any further than the Adela Hotel. Plus, there is even a health centre in the hotel, boasting a sauna and a Turkish bath - not to mention the amazing terrace restaurant.

Keten Suites Taksim

This centrally located apartment hotel has all the swish and glamour of a New York apartment, and yet it’s also surprisingly affordable. If you want to be truly comfortable when you visit Istanbul, then you are definitely going to want to at least consider this one. It’s an apartment experience with a difference.

Grand Zentrum Hotel

This is best known for having a really modern style, and that is something that you are going to notice about it right away. At the same time, however, it has maintained its more traditional decor, so that is something to really love about it too. It also offers great views over the Bosphorus, something a lot of hotels lack.

Bekdas Hotel Deluxe

A truly unique Turkish experience in the heart of the Old City - what more could you want? The Bekdas also has some of the best hotel cuisine you will find anywhere in the city, so it’s well worth checking out.

Hotel Diamond City

And finally, the Hotel Diamond City - go here for an incredibly affordable and very central hotel with some lovely simple rooms and plenty of good service. You’ll be amazed at how much you can get for your money when you stay somewhere like this.

As you can see, you have a lot of options at your disposal, so check out each of these in turn if you are keen to ensure you find somewhere good to stay in Istanbul.
