Hard to find by public transportation. View on the Bosporus and Istanbul is OK, but not spectacular. Do not expect any alcohol in that region, so Turkish tea or soft drinks are served in restaurant.

If you want to go to Eyub from Pierre Loti Hil or to Pierre Loti Hill from Eyub Ansari Mosque then the best way is through the cable car. It's a short ride with great views of the Golden Horn.

This ride will take few minutes from you while standing in queue will take much more than that unless you go very early. A short ride crossing crowded roads with a nice view. Good to stop for ice cream or a cup of Turkish coffee

chic streets are considered the very heart of
contemporary Istanbuli life, where an epicenter of
fashion and a thriving business district meet to
create an expressly “downtown” feel. Though largely a
residential neighborhood, luxury hotels, fine dining
