Istanbul, Turkey’s largest city, straddles two continents – Europe and Asia, either side of the Bosphorus Strait. The postcard scenes of grand mosques are impressive, but Turkish hospitality means you don’t have to feel like a tourist. The city also has a great nocturnal scene, from cocktail bars to atmospheric raki taverns. For all its scale, the Ottoman-era capital can get the little things just right – and that goes for places to stay.
