Can’t make up your mind between Europe and Asia for your next big getaway? Europe is classy, refined and distinguished—like a snifter of smooth, malty brandy. Asia, on the other hand, is exotic, colourful and breath-taking—not unlike the pit at a weekend music festival. So which do you choose to visit on holiday?
Well, you could flip a coin to help you decide. Or you could just visit both continents.
You may not know this, because it flies a little under the radar, but there is a magical city that is in both Europe and Asia. It’s Istanbul, not Constantinople (get it?)—the only city whose boundaries lie within two continents. Problem solved. When you stay at boutique Istanbul hotels, you get the class and luxury you’d expect from Europe, as well as the service and flair typical in Asia. That’s a win-win.
And when you book Istanbul boutique accommodation through Wotif, you save some significant scratch. That’s a win-win-win.
Your boutique accommodation in Istanbul is a great home base for your intercontinental adventure. Take a trip through history as you walk around town. The Hagia Sophia Museum used to be a church, then it was a mosque. Now it’s a museum where you can make a wish by sticking your thumb in a hole in a column. We don’t make this stuff up.
Be sure to check out the Blue Mosque, too. The intricate blue tilework on the interior will make that macaroni mosaic you made when you were 5 look like a, well…like a macaroni mosaic made by a 5-year old.
You can also climb the Galata Tower, where—supposedly—the first man ever to fly with wings jumped off and literally flew to another continent. Hey, speaking of continents, the Topkapi Palace Museum was once the home of emperors from three continents. You’re probably going to think that the third one is Antarctica. Sorry, it’s Africa.
We hope you like food cooked on a stick, because Istanbul is famous for its kebabs. To be honest, kebab is a type of cuisine, not a blanket term for something grilled on a skewer. There are dozens of kebab options, so you’re going to have to eat a lot.
You can pair your meals with some of the best coffee and tea on the planet. After you’ve fuelled up on caffeine, head over to the Grand Bazaar to find a sweet treat or a colourful souvenir.
Istanbul boutique hotels are very much like the city that surrounds them. You get the perfect blend of ancient with modern and service with style. Here are some of our favourite places around town:
Use Wotif to book your stay at any of the amazing boutique hotels in Istanbul today. You can spend the money you save criss-crossing your way back and forth between two continents like the jet-setter you are.
