It s a common question - Should I book my hotel in advance?
We absolutely reccomend book your hotel room in advance. Istanbul is already a very bussy destination in europe and day by day getting more crowded. Especially easter holidays, (March April May) Formula one race, weekends and special days are getting much more bussy than other times. In these periods prices are getting almost double. High season for Istanbul April-May and August-September and october. So reserve your hotel at least the first night or two of your stay in Istanbul. First day you arrive in Istanbul will be confusing and time will not enough to check some nice hotels.
