I'm having a hard time deciding between Richmond Hotel and Karakoy Port Hotel. I'll be spending 5 nights in Istanbul in September. I'm traveling with two friends and we are all females in our mid-20s. We want to have a safe, clean hotel in a central location. We will probably go out to dinner at night and want to be able to get back to our hotel without worrying.
Can anyone help me decide between the two? The Karakoy Port Hotel gets better reviews online but seems a little more out of the way. The Richmond Hotel is a bit more expensive but seems to be in a very central location.
I appreciate any advice! Thank you!
