Beware of Noise

For a good accommodation in Istanbul, there one fact, you should be careful about hotel's location. Sometimes the area is bustling with people and cars, and the noise is almost unbearable. Just be careful about the hotel's street, it should not be a boulevard or a avenue or any busy street of that kind.

If you are a new generation customer, probably you will be using the internet very often. So consider checking the hotel locations through google map, and try to find some REAL reviews through trip advisor or booking.com

I meant by saying REAL comments, it should be genuine. There are a lot of fake comments in Istanbul Trip Advisor pages so you should be careful about it though.
