Beautiful at night

It is 25TL. I thought it was worth it. The pictures I took at night were beautiful. Also it is im a more affordable area of town so meals, shopping is reasonable.

There are two amazing things that distinguish this mall from others. The panoramic view and the helicopter simulation which there are located at the rooftop. There is a coffee shop that has two sections; open and closed areas where both of them you can enjoy the fantastic view of Istanbul and its Bosporus from the top. To get there you... More

The highest building in Istanbul which made me enormously perplexed because of it's astounding view from the top. I enjoyed great restaurants too like the Cafe vista. This have 2 towers, four floors with nice restaurants, wax museum, and also with 3D cinemas. It's nice to come to the top during sunset as you can witness the panoramic view of... More

Seeing the modern skyscrapers of Levent next to the winding informality of Gultepe gives you a great sense of what Istanbul is.

But if you go on a cloudy day you won't see anything. I just went because they offer a discount on cloudy days.

Istanbul Sapphire is one of the most high buildings in Turkey. Exciting impression from being so high above Great City Istanbul. Fascinating chance to look over vast landscapes from Black Sea to Marmara.

I could say that it's almost 5 stars because the view is not exactly 360 degrees, but you can see most Istanbul from above. The observation deck contains an open terrasse with tables and chairs and a nice cafe with a souvenir shop. In order to come up, there is a nice, elegant elevator. The entrance is through the Sapphire... More

This is a fantastic view of the whole of Istanbul. Can see all the way past the airport one way, to the Asian side in the other direction and also the beautiful princes island. The view is tremendous. The mall is dying so there's no need to do anything there, just pay for the elevator and head on up. Probably... More
