  2. Dear Lind,

    The closest point for your hotel is Sultanahmet. Please find the bus which goes to Sultanahmet direction.
    Best Regards.

  3. Yeah, generally it happens whenever we travel somewhere and we just want something which makes us safe and secure for our ride and tour. As if you are thinking or planning for an Istanbul tour then there are many pickups and drop tour services providers. As I read this blog my conclusion about the transportation during any tour is we should have planned and aware of the services. Also, we should make us update with that particular place where we are planning to go. Many times, it becomes a challenge of the transportation from Airport to the hotel and so on. Moreover, for the Istanbul tour, I would like to suggest you for private cars or taxies which feels us safe and comfortable for our tour. As I know a company for Istanbul airport transportations that is offering pick up/drop services in Istanbul and all around Turkey for 24*7. The name of that company or agency is Toursce Turkey.
