Hotel Booking in Istanbul Turkey

Online booking to any domestic and international hotel makes the life easier for travellers all around the world. Here, I will share my experience with the Online booking of a Hotel in Istanbul, Turkey. Many trusted websites are available from which we choose booking.com to get our Aspen Hotel online booking in Istanbul.

Aspen Hotel in Istanbul, Turkey
Before selection we kept a few things in our mind as follows:

i. Hotel Ratings, Hotel Rooms, Hotel Facilities, Hotel Reviews & also an important thing the rates of the room.

It is mandatory to have a Hotel Reservation before applying and one of the Documents Required for Turkish Visit Visa from Pakistan. Our group of four friends starts finding the hotels keeping the above requirements in our mind and then we share our choices and finalize a hotel that was Aspen Hotel Ist.

ii. An area to Stay in Istanbul (European or Asian Side, Old City or New City, Taksim or Sultanahmet)

Four stars Aspen Hotel Rooms, facilities, reviews were matching our requirements. It was located at the European (Old City Sultanahmet) side of the city. We booked 2 Economy Double or Twin Rooms at 94 Euros for each room for 2 nights including free breakfast with no cancellation fee. We take the printouts of our hotel reservation.

iii. Distance from the Ataturk & Sabiha Gokcen International Airports

Aspen Hotel was only 20 km from the Ataturk International Hotel (European side of Istanbul) & 45 km from Sabiha Gokcen International Airport (Asian side of Istanbul). We paid 70 Turkish Lira to the taxi driver for 30 minutes ride from airport to hotel & 135 Turkish Lira from Hotel Trend to Sabiha Gokcen International Airport for 1-hour ride.
