Istanbul

Istanbul's leap in popularity over the past decade or so has led to an array of new and upgraded hotels throughout the city. Many are located in the Sultanahmet area, which is the most convenient part of the city to major sites like Topkapi Palace, the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia. Luxury properties cluster around the Bosporus. Wherever you're staying, try to book in advance, particularly if you're visiting during the summer high season.
