Istanbul, Turkey - August 27-31, 2007

Some nice options for centrally located Istanbul accommodation are listed below. You should book your accommodation independently and as soon as possible, given that August is peak season for tourism in Istanbul.

4- and 5-star hotels

Note: Hotels in this category will be more expensive than usual during the first few days of the conference, due to the Formula 1 Grand Prix being held in Istanbul at the same time.

If you require accommodation in this category, the travel agency Arttours would be happy to help you. They can provide discounts well below the standard rates. Tell them you're looking for accommodation in Sultanahmet or near Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University.
