More about Istanbul

Where can I store my luggage in Istanbul?

To call Istanbul a “historic city” is quite an understatement. This strategic port along the Bosporus has been one of the world’s most influential cities since it was founded in the 660s BC. First named Byzantium and then re-named Constantinople, Istanbul literally and figuratively straddles the divide between East and West. Although Istanbul is no longer the capital of Turkey, it remains the nation’s most significant center for culture, business, and tourism. But it’s not just this city’s history that attracts international tourists. As you’d expect in one of the world’s most populous cities, Istanbul has a diverse range of high-class shopping, dining, and nightlife activities.

Originally constructed in the 1890s, this station’s opulent architecture has also been a point of pride for residents of Istanbul.

Luggage Storage Near Hagia Sophia Museum

Visiting Istanbul without touring the Hagia Sophia is like visiting Paris without seeing Notre Dame. You just have to do it. Located no far from Sultanahmet Square, the Hagia Sophia Museum was originally built as a Christian church in the 6th century. When the Ottomans took over in the 15th century, however, Hagia Sophia served as the city’s central mosque. Today, the Hagia Sophia serves as a museum, but you will see heavy influences from both the Christian and Muslim worlds on your tour. Visitors are always impressed by the Hagia Sophia’s spacious interior, massive dome, and the glittering remains of Byzantine mosaics. No matter your faith, a tour through the Hagia Sophia is sure to leave you speechless.

When you’re in the Hagia Sophia, one thing you don’t want to be worried about is lugging around heavy bags. For a stress-free experience of this architectural masterpiece, look into luggage storage options on Bounce's website. You’re sure to find loads of Bounce-approved hotels and stores around the Hagia Sophia that will take good care of your luggage.

Luggage Storage Near Haydarpasa Station

Ironically, one the most distinctly European attractions in Istanbul is in the Asian section of the city. Designed by two Western architects, the Haydarpasa Train Station looks almost like a castle when viewed from outside. While touring this station’s massive interior, guests are treated to fabulous stained glass windows, mosaics, and highly decorated ceilings with allusions to Istanbul’s legendary history. Although Haydarpasa still functions as a train station, its impressive architecture has made it a must-see stop on any tourist’s itinerary.

Whether you’re riding the rails or taking a ferry, chances are you’ll visit Haydarpasa at some point on your Istanbul journey. Before you head out to Haydarpasa, be sure to browse Bounce’s bag storage in the Istanbul category. For just $5.90 per day, we promise to keep your belongings safe wherever you decide to drop them off.

Luggage Storage Near Istanbul Airport

For many years, the main airport for international tourists coming into Istanbul was Istanbul Ataturk Airport at the southern end of the city. Since 2019, however, the City of Istanbul has decided to close Ataturk and instead divert all air traffic to the northern Istanbul Airport (IATA: IST). Considered the largest airport in the world, IST is expected to handle about 40 million passengers per year on some 250 different airlines. As for its distance from the city’s center, IST is roughly a 40-minute drive north of the Hagia Sophia. Although metro service isn’t currently available at IST, these lines are slated to be ready sometime in 2020.

Interested in luggage storage in Istanbul Airport? If so, then you’ve come to the right website. Bounce is proud to offer our customers many baggage storage options in and around bustling IST.

Luggage Storage Near the Blue Mosque

Just a 5-minute walk from the Hagia Sophia you’ll find another one of Istanbul’s great structures that were actually based on the Hagia Sophia’s design: The Blue Mosque. Officially named the Sultan Ahmed Mosque, this glorious house of worship was built in the early 1600s by Ottoman Sultan Ahmed I. This mosque got its nickname due to the heavy use of blue tiling and blue-tinted lighting.

Please keep in mind, however, that unlike Hagia Sophia the Blue Mosque is still an active house of worship. This means you will only be allowed inside if you wear appropriate attire. Women must ensure to cover their shoulders and legs as well as wear a headscarf. Men are encouraged to wear long pants and long-sleeved shirts. Both men and women must remove shoes when entering the Blue Mosque, so be sure to wear a comfy pair of socks during your visit.

Because the Blue Mosque is an active house of worship, it’s advised you search through all of the bag storage in Istanbul options listed on Bounce’s website. As you’ll soon see, Bounce works with many reputable stores and hotels just a short walk away from this holy site. If you have more questions about our services, don’t hesitate to contact one of Bounce’s friendly staff.

Luggage Storage Near the Topkapi Palace Museum

Another opulent Ottoman-era building worth exploring is the Topkapi Palace Museum just a 3-minute walk north of Hagia Sophia. Constructed in the 15th century, Topkapi once served as the main home of some of the most illustrious sultans in Istanbul’s history. Thankfully, this sprawling complex survived the centuries and has been under state protection ever since the 1920s. Guests who visit Topkapi will get to see the rooms where Ottoman sultans and their administrators conducted daily business as well as the famed harem where the sultan’s concubines lived. Don’t forget to closely inspect all of the treasures housed in this palace complex, including rare manuscripts, bejeweled weaponry, and lovely textiles.

Please save yourself the hassle of carrying uncomfortable bags around this world-class museum. Bounce now has loads of options around Topkapki Palace clearly listed on our luggage storage in the Istanbul page. Need more specifics? Just download our user-friendly mobile app to find all of our storage destinations.

Luggage Storage Near Basilica Cistern

Very close to the Hagia Sophia Museum is yet another marvel of Roman engineering: the Basilica Cistern. Located underneath Istanbul, this cistern is an almost 10,000 sq. meter space initially built as a storage center for water. As you walk around this miraculous area, you can’t help but wonder how the Romans were able to erect these 300-plus columns back in Ancient times. By the way, keep in mind the Basilica Cistern frequently holds fun events, so be sure to check out what’s going on here before you visit.

Because the Basilica Cistern is underground, you could imagine how difficult it is to carry bags around with you on your tour. For your comfort, we advise leaving your luggage at a Bounce-approved hotel before visiting this fabulous attraction. Keep in mind Bounce ensures all of our customers’ bags for $5,000, so there’s no reason to worry about working with us.
