10 Best Romantic Hotels for couples in Istanbul
Before the hotels, there is a most common question about Turkey which is can unmarried couples stay in the same hotel room in Turkey? The answer can change. Maybe you can’t stay in some towns, villages and small provinces but not in Istanbul or the other touristy cities.
However, it’s a good point to make that clear. Probably you won’t have any problem sharing the same room even if you are unmarried at well-known hotels. So here is the advice: choose a popular place to stay or make sure that they accept unmarried couples, too.
The place that you stay will show you the sentimental value of your relationship. So deciding the hotel that you will stay, is a very important step. You should consider some points like privacy, services, offers, optional facilitates and ambiance of the hotel. However, the location of the hotel is very significant, too.
