If you need to reach Asian side from European or vise versa, and it is not a rush hour, but, honestly, even in a rush hour the traffic on the ground will be really bad, just flash your istanbulkart and go down 20 storeys down...More
If you want to get fast from Sultanahmet to Uskudar you should choose an underground trip from Sirkeci Marmaray station. And by the way there is a historical railway station Sirkeci besides this place where the world-famous Oriental Express had arrived and departed many years...More
I've found that Marmaray is very useful to go to Esenler otogar too. You can get on Marmaray from Sirkeci Station and change at Yenikapi. You can get Metro 1 and go directly to the bus terminal. You don't have to walk a long distance...More

retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
