Preparing for a 3 day trip to Istanbul, and needing somewhere to stay, as well as the most important sites to visit, we sifted through a few travel books in a book shop. We decided straight away that this was the most complete, informative and useful guide for us -----so on to the Amazon website to order it!

The section for 1 or 2 or 3 days in Istanbul was a great help in deciding our hotel (many are redcommended in differing price ranges and areas) and the tourist sites are described in detail, thereby reducing the need for an expensive guide. We do not go until October, but will definately be using the shopping and restaurant sections whilst there.

The maps are excellent and the whole book easy to carry around, with good layout.

An excellent guide to Istanbul. Small enough to carry in a pocket but enough information for a short visit as it features all the major sites and plenty of general details.

I loved the size of this book, the concise informative content and the map. I've lent it to friends who were all equally impressed.

I don't like looking like a tourist, but when you've only got a couple of days in a new city needs must!

This is an excellent book for a short trip to Istanbul. The Top 10 tips on each section allows you to get to all the important parts of the City easily. There are pictures and maps taht help - plus a very handy fold out map.
For a longer trip though I would recommend the larger format DK Guide

Another disappointing Top 10...
To be honest, a city the size and magnitude of Istanbul really deserves more coverage than this little number. Compare the size of the Top 10 Rome with this one and you'll see what I mean.
Due to the lack of detail/depth - which it can do in the Top 10 series (e.g. Rome!) - I didn't use this at all when out in Istanbul. I preferred the sister DK title - the regular 'Istanbul' one. Maps were generally of no use on the ground but helpful enough for planning where roughly sites were laid out.
Can't really recommend this title and hoping the next Top 10 I pick up is an improvement as I love the size and concept!

I used it when I went to Istanbul... and since I didnt have much time this book was useful to select what to see and what to leave for later. Also the price is very reasonable.
