PS. If you find yourself in Beyoğlu, we can really recommend the hotel we slept in – Peradays is a modern small hotel with very chic rooms and a killer breakfast! All within a two-minute walk from Istiklal Street. The neighbouring hotel, the Armada Pera Hotel, was our second choice and we did end up at their sister hotel in the old city for the rest of our visit.
