Vapur Iskelesi lane, Ortaköy
Çırağan Street leads to the western border of the Ortaköy quarter, which was formed in the 16th century in the valley of the stream with that name. Here I turned into the Vapur Iskelesi Sokak, which leads to the Bosphorus shore, where the main attractions of the quarter are located. In the alley there are many retail outlets where you can buy traditional jewelry and other small things.
There are several hotels here, among which I would like to mention the four-star The Stay Bosphorus, built in the traditions of wooden Ottoman architecture. The hotel offers rooms with a wonderful view of the Bosphorus and Cape Ortaköy.
In front of the hotel, you can see the original public communicators in the form of dolphins. Here you can use both a regular phone and get Wi-Fi access to the Internet.
In the next building is the luxury The House Hotel, known for its cafe The House. The alley ends at Ortaköy Square, which is considered the center of the quarter.
