I will be staying in Istanbul for 4-6 days in Sept had a couple of questions over where to stay?
I was considering ether Takism or Sultanahmet since the prices for a good hotel are very reasonable outside the big name chain ones.
1) Which one offers easier access to Ataturk Airport? Or does it really matter?
2) I'm a big history buff but I really value night life. I hear most of the good night life and restaurants are in Taksim but the sights tend to be in Sultanahmet. Are both fairly quick and easy to get to on foot?
