I did not stay at Hotel Silviya, actually, I tried several times going there to chance upon availability of room but surprisingly it's always full.

It's a "sokak" (street) away from where I stayed the first time - Arya Otel in Balyoz Street -which is a branch of Istiklal Caddesi (Beyoglu). From Istiklal Caddesi (the main avenue), go down the Asmalimescit Sokak (street).

The front of the hotel is neat and so are the rooms, basic non aircon but were kept clean, at 30YTL (or about Euro18), you can't go wrong.... including breakfast!

Update (2009): Rates became higher YTL50 for a single room, more than 50% increase from 3 years back. Well, I guess all costs went up in Istanbul.

Unique Qualities: Neat!

Address: Asmalimescit sokak #54/A, Tepebasi/Beyoglu
Comparison: least expensive
Directions: Coming from Taksim Square, either you walk about 15 min. or take the old tram for YTL1 and get off before reaching the end of the street going to the tunnel. The tram has limited stops, so better ask the driver.
