does anyone know the price of the fare from taksim to sultanahmet?????
the site tells me it will cost about 30 lira's.
the people from the hostel tell me it will cost more than 100 lira's ??????????

Probably the people of the hostel got your destination wrong; they might think that you're coming all the way from Sabiha Gökçen to Sultan Ahmet by taxi.
The site is much closer to truth.
Come whoever you are...
just come as you are

From Ataturk Airport or Sabiha forget the taxi..instead, take HAVAS bus for 12 lira flat rate to Taksim.
