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.

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?

If you’re going for work, you’re probably going to be spending most of your time well away from Beyoglu and Sultanahmet - you’ll be in the ‘business triangle’ north and east of Beyoglu that encompasses Levent, Besiktas and Sisli. Obviously these are all suitable for business, but some business hotels are more ‘business’ than others.
