I am traveling to Istanbul in less than a month, and I quite literally have 4 hotels booked...and am not sure which is best. We'll be there from Friday to Monday (running the marathon on Sunday) so we're looking for something near touristy sites but also accessible to start line for the race on Sunday.
I have World Heritage Hotel booked for now at $400USD for the weekend. Is it a good choice? Tripadvisor has it as number 1, but I have also found less expensive Best Westerns, etc. and am not sure whether to go with the traditional old city hotel or something more western for my husband and me for the weekend. Any recommendations are great. Also, if there are any recommendations for ways to see all of Istanbul in a day, please post.
