Neighborhood Game Changer: Mama Shelter Istanbul

Craving an alternative to the touristy zones around Hagia Sophia? This 81-room hotel has set up shop along bustling Istiklal Caddesi, in trendy Beyoglu. Expect the same winning mix of high style and low prices from the French brand, with colorful interiors by Philippe Starck (superhero masks by the bed, map-print carpets emblazoned with “Constantinople” and “Byzance”) and a restaurant conceived by notable French chefs Alain Senderens and Jérôme Banctel. mamashelter.com. $
