      I have read that in order to reach 4.Levent Metro Station...I have to take the airport bus towards Taksim Square and then take Metro from there.
      Is that the easiest and cheapest way (for a newbie and travelling alone in Istanbul) of reaching that area?

      Airport transport and domestic / international transit

      Istanbul Nov 9, 2014 at 9:04 AM

      What is the best way from airport (IST) to Sultanahmet? Likewise the best way from Sultanahmet to airport?

      I am heading to Istanbul, after a couple of days taking a flight to Nevsehir (Cappadocia). I am departing from Nevsehir back to Istanbul, then change to another airline to depart from Istanbul. I know there are 2 airports, but this is in the same airport, Ataturk airport (IST)

      I will arrive at about 1330 and my next flight about 1900. It is not a connecting flight but a different airline. I am assuming luggage collection takes up to 1430 and I could manage to re check in to my international flight by 1630 latest. Is this a fair assumption?

      Do I have to go through customs / immigration? Will domestic / international terminal be near? Any specific thing to take note of would be helpful.

      Anything that I can see / do in airport if I do have extra time?

      We are also considering renting a vehicle and driving to places along the coast such as Izmir and Antalya and then to the Cappadocia area. Would 10 days be enough to see these highlights and is it advisable to rent a car and drive around ourselves? Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks.

      by mkrbu50 Online Now Aug 12, 2007 at 12:22 AM

      I guess the post title tells some of the questions. However, I have a bit longer story. I contacted a hotel by phone in Iznik, I found its number on the hotels -rather shabby- website.
      The phone answered with a male voice on the other side, and I asked in what I believe is a polite tone: "I've visited your website and I liked your Pansiyon. May I make reservation for 2 nights starting from 30 of September?".
      The voice answered "No, we don't have. It is Ramadan, we close". The website did mention that it will not accept phone/email reservations, due to many cases of no show up. Instead, it provided bank accounts for payment deposits. Having said that, I would assume in all good intentions that this was an attempt to turn me down nicely because I did not follow his instructions.
      The big question is> Do they have something like business holiday/break during the mentioned period.
