Very close to public transport:
→ 5 minutes walk to Taxim square where you can hop on a subway or a bus to go any quarter you like
→ 6 minutes walk (450 mt.) down to stairs to reach the sea side or hop on a tram to go to the historical peninsula. It takes 15 minutes to reach main historical highlights of Istanbul like Hagia Sophia, The Basilica Cistern, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Spice Market and Grand Bazaar. / The airport shuttles from both airports (Ataturk and Sabiha Gokcen) have Taxim square as destination point.
