I will be moving to Istanbul in a few months for my new employer. I will be working from SAW airport and have to find accommodation on the Asian side. I have been looking at Kadikoy, Maltepe and Kartal area's. A friend advised to live on, or close to bagdad street, as there is where the activity is... But that is a very long street, so where on that street is good? I will be moving with my wife, baby daughter and three cats. I was wondering if anyone can advise me on where to live. Im open to all options at the moment. And is it a good idea to rent furnished or unfurnished in Istanbul? Any info welcome!
