We'll be going to Istanbul for the first time and we would like to get suggestions on where to spend New Years Eve. We want a a restaurant/bar/club overlooking the Bosphorus to see the fireworks. We'll be staying about 5 mins away from Galata Tower so we prefer something around that area...
We would really appreciate your help! Thanks!!!

I am planning on coming to Istanbul for the very first time!!! I can't believe I've never been before, but it is true! I am planning on coming on Dec. 27th and staying until the 31st December, 2013. I will be traveling with another woman friend and we would like to have a place with separate beds perhaps in a private flat. I've been looking on airbnb, but I am not familiar with Istanbul at all. We have a budget of 60Euros each per day for accommodations, so 120 per day if we share and if it is with separate beds. Also, we are not 'Spring Chickens' but still we are walking! We'd like to be somewhere nice and near the tourist areas, Agia Sofia, the Blue Mosque, the Bazaar, and we would like to avoid having to take many taxis and buses, I don't mind taking the metro and an occasional taxi will be necessary. Can anyone recommend a nice private flat that would be also in a good neighbourhood? Thank you very much. Janet
