Hotel for the F1 GP

Post by HolidayJunkieCH » Wed Sep 08, 2010 5:33 pm

Hi everyone. We looked this year at coming to the F1GP in Turkey, but the price and the circuit transfer problems put us off. Can anyone recommend a good hotel to stay in, and one that will offer guests a transfer to & from the circuit on Saturday & Sunday? Any other suggestions or comments re coming to the F1 GP gladly welcomed.
Many thanks.

For the record, the Formula 1 Grand Prix race will take place in Istanbul on the weekend of May 6 to 8, 2011. Expect hotels to be fully booked well in advance.

If I were going, I'd contact Backpackers Travel in Istanbul, as they not only own their own hotels, but also have a fleet of mini- and midibuses to shuttle guests to the races. Their service is good and prices reasonable (I first recommended them for their excellent, value-for-money airport transfer service).

If their hotels aren't what you want, they know all the other hotels in Istanbul as well.
