Eminönü Square Popular Places

Eminönü is Istanbul's crossroads. Located on the south side of the Golden Horn at the southern end of the Galata Bridge, it's a major transportation nexus for trains, trams, buses and ferries. 

Besides transport, it has sights: the Egyptian (Spice) Bazaar, the Yeni Cami (New Mosque), Central Post Office (Merkez Postanesi), Rüstem Pasha Mosque and Sirkeci Station. 

It's a major shopping area and has been for centuries. The Byzantines bought their fruits, vegetables and grains here a millennium ago. During the early Ottoman centuries it was the home of a Karaite Jewish colony, who were later moved up the Golden Horn to make way for the building of the Yeni Cami. 

You're most likely to use the Eminönü-Zeytinburnu tram and the many ferryboats.

What Our Guests Say

"The location is excellent! A few minutes walk from 3 major attractions. Room is made daily, and some of the staff are very helpful. Very comfortable bed, when the room had cooled down!"
