Turkey’s largest city is where East and West collide - literally. The city straddles both Asia and Europe. You can walk across a bridge or take a 20 minute ferry ride between the European and Asian parts of the city.
We have family hotels in central Istanbul, further out of town and another close to the airport. Whether you want to be right in the centre of the action or a bit further afield, we’ve got the perfect room for you.
The kids will simply love Istanbul Aquarium, which is absolutely huge. Around a 50 minute drive from the centre, there’s also a zoo. You will be stunned by the city’s many landmarks, including the beautiful Suleymaniye Mosque and Ciragan Palace. There are also more than 60 museums and galleries in the city.
Istanbul is a shopper’s heaven too, with bargain bazaars and chic boutiques both in plentiful supply. Istanye Park is a huge mall (even offering shoppers golf carts to get around with their shopping bags), the Nisantasi district is a label lover’s dream and there are scores of regular markets for those who enjoy the thrill of the haggle.
Sports lovers are not left out in the cold. There’s a Formula 1 racing track close by and Istanbul is home to three major football clubs; Besiktas, Galatasaray and Fenerbahce.
You can fly to the city’s Ataturk Airport direct from several locations in the UK, including Manchester, Edinburgh and London. One of our family hotels in Istanbul can be found right by the airport - perfect ahead of or just after a late night flight.
So pack a bag, hop on a flight and join us at one of our family friendly hotels in Istanbul, where you’ll be dazzled by colour, history and culture.
