This hotel is near the Grand Bazaar and Galata Bridge, both of which are worth visiting.
The bazaar is a large market held daily and where lots of different transactions take place. Lively and colourful, you can explore this area without hesitations: of course you should pay attention to your personal belongings, but no more than anywhere else. Residents of Istanbul are very friendly so do not hesitate to ask for directions if you are lost. Fans of small alleys and nooks and crannies will be delighted: you will find many small improvised restaurants and bistros dotted around the bazaar where the catch of the day catch and soups are served with a friendly smile.
These places have no menus, of course, so if you are lucky enough to find one, just go with the flow.
Fish lovers cannot leave Istanbul without spending an evening at the Galata Bridge.
In the lower section, there are small spaces where the catch of the day is barbecued and served with vegetables. However, as they tend to be very busy and not always very clean, it is advisable to choose carefully. If you can, ask for advice before you go.
