Travel Blogs from Istanbul
The official start day for the trip!! Today we would meet the crew and all the other tour members, but that was scheduled for the evening. That left the whole day for sight seeing!!
Jules and I headed up to Topkapi Palace, once the seat of the Ottoman Sultans and the resting place of many important artefacts. On the way we wandered …
Rising well rested from a good night's sleep and after polishing off a continental breakfast we headed out to see the cities many sites. We’d met a few fellow travellers at breakfast, David, an Aussie from Melbourne and Bruce and Sheila from Cambridge (they should be Aussies shouldn’t they?) We headed out with David to have a look …
3 days in Istanbul and I'm ready to move on but really enjoyed the bustle of this hectic city. Saw the main sites Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Spice Market, Grand Bazaar and a boat trip down the river.
However one the most interesting sites was seeing the film set for the next James Bond film. They were filming outside the New Mosque for, I …

Mosques are generally pretty sparse places, but the architecture ...
How has this b&b rated in the past?
It was my first visit to Turkey and these guys made the time there very easy and enjoyable. I used the hotel as the starting point of my travels, it's easily in reach of a lot of the main tourist sites and handy for the trams and trains.
The staff organised a airport transfer for us which at 10pm on a Friday was just what weary travellers needed!
The staff were excellent, very helpful and always on hand.
Our room was a small double, not much room to walk around and a little cramped for two people with huge rucksacks but this was not a major issue. The cleanliness of the facilities was very good and the bed a very welcome rest for weary, airplane knotted muscles!
The breakfast was good and plentiful.
Wi-Fi service was slow to start with but later was excellent.
All in all a very good establishment, I would stay again!
