DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Istanbul - Moda
Local Life in Istanbul
Eating, drinking, and shopping in Kadıköy, on the Asian side of Istanbul, will give you a true taste of local life. While a few expats and tourists have infiltrated the area, it's worth the 20-minute ferry trip from the European side. The Doubletree is the most luxurious hotel, but there are many hostels and low-cost motels around the area. Eat fish sandwiches, drink Rakı, and give your spare coins to the Romany children playing drums and selling roses.
