5.0 out of 5 stars istanbul weekend
I opted for the pocket guide as I only had 3 days to spare in Istanbul. It was great - enough info without being overwhelming and enough quirky things to keep me away from the crowds around Sultanhamet. Good advice too on the bars and eating places in Beyoglu. To my surprise I managed to navigate the transport system successfully. Good value for money and easy to...

3.0 out of 5 stars Only just adequate
I bought this because it was small enough to carry round easily, had a good map and covered quite a lot of attractions. The downside was that it was sparse on actual information about the sites and was quite frustrating to read. I started to long for more details. We tried a couple of the recommended restaurants which were nothing special.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent pocket guide to a great city, 10 Jun. 2014

This review is from: Pocket Rough Guide Istanbul (Pocket Rough Guides) (Paperback)
We bought this guide for a three day break in Istanbul. As we were there a short time only we didn't want to spend much more than a fiver and had used Rough Guide books and found them very good in the past.

It was great for transport, places to eat (and some excellent Turkish coffee places!) and things to see. It has the rough outlines of historical things and cultural things to experience. As always, Rough Guides give a good overview of the place you're visiting and throw-in some little gems as well that you would be lucky to just stumble upon. The pull-out map was very handy.

We did spend a bit of time researching what we wanted to see and this book really helped us get to those places and get around while we were there. It was very lightweight and didn't take up much space of our small bag.
