Welcome Artefes Hotel
IBBP.com welcomes Artefes Hotel located in Istanbul, Turkey.
Istanbul, a metropolis of 15 million people, is often described as "the crossroads of Europe and Asia" - a heaving bazaar-city of carpets and caravanserais with an imperial history stretching back for more than 1,500 years. The city center, including the areas referred to as 'the old city' and 'the new city', which are separated by the estuary of the Golden Horn, is located on the European side of Istanbul, on the Western side of the Bosphorus Strait. Its varied history is mirrored by the stunning Ottoman mosques, classical columns, Byzantine structures, ancient city walls and fine churches. A fine example of this is Haghia Sophia, or Church of Divine Wisdom and Topkapi Palace is another Istanbul must-see. Famous for its markets and bazaars, bed and breakfast travelers should also check out the Covered or Grand Bazaar and the Spice Market. Get away to Yildiz Park with its woodland and landscaped gardens or take in culture pure at the Archaeological Museums or the Istanbul Modern Museum. Whatever your pleasure, let IBBP help you to find the ideal accommodation for your unforgettable visit to Istanbul.
Artefes is a boutique hotel located at the heart of Istanbul's historical peninsula. It is in the center of the Old City,within walking distance of most of the major sites.
The hotel offers a daily four-course menu of regional Turkish specialties and Ottoman classics either inside or out on the terrace, with a magical view of the Marmara Sea.
