TravelPod Member ReviewsMarmara Guesthouse Istanbul
Marmara Guesthouse is in a perfect location to enjoy the old city of Istanbul. It is quiet and comfortable with a lovely view over the Bosphorus. This family run guesthouse offers help with local tours as well as arranging trips throughout the countryside. Very good choice

... was the center of the world for centuries, and was the largest dome in the world for more than a thousand years. Kings and queens have walked these steps, and seen the same view as seen today.

On the way back to the hostel we discovered we could go into the mausoleum in our outfits. So in we go and look at many ...
... who aren't too big on palaces anyway, so we walked away.
We did go to Saray Muhallebicisi for a little snack. They specialize in puddings, and I got a chicken breast one. That's right. It wasn't actually very good. The drink I got, called Sahlap (or Sahlep, or Salep), is a combination of vanilla root and condensed milk with some cinnamon. It's quite thick but pretty good.
The place we're staying is actually just a few rooms at a restaurant, so the breakfast is ...
