Introducing our newest hotel guide--HotelChatter's Must Stay Hotels--where we pick four hotels for four different types of travelers in a particular neighborhood of one major city. This is also a seasonal guide so the options may change depending on when you're going. Got a question about where to stay and when? Email us.

Looking for a hotel in Istanbul? You can troll online review sites, crowdsource on Facebook and comb through endless “Best Hotels” lists but why do all that when we’ve done all the work for you already?

Istanbul is famously enormous – if spanning two continents wasn't enough, it also enjoys the largest urban sprawl in Europe – so location is key for getting the most out of your stay. Beyoglu, separated from old town Sultanahmet by the Golden Horn and the Galata Bridge (pictured top) is the trendy part of town (divided into even trendier districts like Karakoy and Cihangir). When you’ve finished sightseeing, you’ll come here for the eating, drinking and shopping. By the way, all these have free WiFi.

Room Mate Kerem (so new, they have yet to put a face to the name*) will be in Beyoglu, a block up from pedestrianized shopping strip Istiklal Street, right by the British Consulate (a few minutes away from the Pera Palace).

It’s a historic building (of course – it’s Beyoglu) re-envisioned by designer Lázaro Rosa Violán, and the renderings look superb: a modern take on Art Deco, with lofty ceilings and oversized windows, lots of mirrors and glass to flood the lobby with light, and even a library and what looks like an antique display cabinet of glass and pottery. Drool over all the pictures here.
