This trip was not it. I would love to sell a dream and say it was amazing but unfortunately, this particular visit wasn’t. There were some highlights, namely the food and the hotel. But there was a LOT that went wrong including some casual racism.

I was staying at the Hilton Istanbul Bomonti which as far as I can tell was in a pretty good area and the hotel itself was quite nice. I had really nice view and their Sky Lounge/Bar was amazing.

I would definitely recommend going to Mangerie (Bebek), Aheste and Nusr-Et Steakhouse (which is cheaper here than everywhere else).

Massive heads up, do not try and order an Uber at the airport. They are not allowed to pick you up!
