... We're barely better with the airports, the best of which greet visitors with snazzy but completely predictable malls.
Nevertheless, airports remain a good place to people watch. In the Cafe/Bar/Brasserie (they used all three descriptors in the name) we eventually got seats in at Ataturk, there was plenty of interesting people watching. First of all, there was a whole contingent (like hundreds) of guys wearing nothing but towels. Don't think ...
... was packed. Our museum cards did their thing again and we skipped the 500 people in the queue but not the 5,000 who were already there. The place was wonderful but its clear that it's May bank holiday weekend here and most of the people in Turkey have decided to be a tourist too. The views over the Bosphorus are, however, very special.
After the palace it was time for a late lunch. We have already realised we cannot eat more than two meals a day so a good ...
... and back again. We stayed overnight at Gallipoli. There was no shelter it was just a mat (if you had brought one with you) and a sleeping bag. Sim was luckily enough to have the camping mat to himself while I got shafted to a garbage bag for the night. Sim's excuse was that I don't share well enough. Didn't really worry me seeing as I was awake for most of the night anyway. They had documentaries on the war running on big screens all night and a band and ...
... Palace instead to make the most of the good weather (15 degrees +). That turned out to be a good decision. As well as the palace itself we enjoyed a great view over the Bosphorus and loved sitting in the sun. The palace is all courtyards and pavilions, very different to the giant palaces of Europe. I guess that has a lot to do with the weather in summer. We spent a good few hours there and the time passed really quickly.
We then had lunch ...
My first Turkish breakfast was somewhat of a shock. I have now learned to approach dairy products with some hesitation as they are typically much more salty or sour than is preferred by the American palate. The majority of the dairy products here are from goats, and it is common that salt is added in excess to such dishes. Besides that, I could recognize everything that was on my plate, I just wasn't use to those flavors for breakfast. Is it weird ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ada Hotel Istanbul
Ada is a home away from home!
Our stay in Istanbul was amazing and the Ada Hotel was such a warm and friendly place to stay. Such gracious hospitality! The hotel is new and very charming with all amenities. Lovely view of the Sea of Marmura. Breakfast included. A fabulous location in Sultanahmet. This is a hidden gem! I highly recommend it.
All'Ada ci si sente come a casa!
La nostra permanenza a Istanbul è stata stupenda e l'Ada Hotel si è rivelato una sistemazione confortevole e amichevole. Un'ospitalità davvero eccellente! L'hotel è nuovo e veramente incantevole, dotato di ogni comfort. Bellissima vista sul Mar di Marmara. Colazione inclusa. Posizione favolosa nel Sultanahmet. Questo posto è una perla rara! Lo raccomando altamente.
Bonne adresse pour découvrir Istamboul
Petit hôtel très récent avec de grandes chambres bien meublées et très propres.
Bien situé, tout près de la mosquée bleue, dans une petite rue calme (sauf l'appel à la prière de 5h dans la mosquée voisine). Toutes les chambres ont une jolie vue sur la mer de Marmara.
A 5mn à pied de l'arrêt de tramway Sultanahmet.
Bon accueil, patron serviable et accomodant.
Une curiosité : la baignoire à remous est dans la chambre et pas dans la salle d'eau.
Upscale small hotel in Sultanahmet
We spent two days at the Ada Hotel in November of 2006. The hotel was opened in July - with some features in the final stages of completion - ie the elevator and terrace. These are due to be completed in early 2007. The hotel itself is modern, spacious and luxurious with views to the Sea of Marmara. The hotel has been built in the design of a Turkish house but with all the modern features that attract North American travellers. In some rooms there are even jacuzzi bathtubs looking out to the view. The hotel is located in quiet residential area a block from the Hippodrome and Blue Mosque. The owners, who designed and built this hotel, also own the very successful Best Western Spectra Hotel around the corner. For people who would like a bit more luxury, kingsized beds, designer linens and up to date bathrooms, this is the place for you.
Le vrai charme de Constantinople
Nous avons passé 5 jours inoubliables dans ce petit hôtel. Il est vraiment très joli avec ses vues byzantines sur la mer de Marmara et avec ses chambres propres et lumineuses. Cette vieille maison ottomane se trouve en plein centre ville, juste à côté de la Mosquée Bleue, dans une ruelle très calme. Elle est récemment reconstruite dans un style un peu simple mais chez-soi. On se sentait vraiment à l'aise ici. Le personnel était très gentil et les petits déjeuners sur la terrace - magiques. A vrai dire, cet hôtel vaut plus ce qu'il coûte.
One of the most beautiful places in Istanbul !

Great Place to Stay in Sultanahmet
After planning to stay at the Spectra Hotel by a friend's recommendation, the hotel manager offered us a room at the new Hotel Ada (about a block from the Blue Mosque). We stayed a week. We had a third floor room that over looked the Sea of Marmara and the neighborhood mosque. Not only was the room new and spacious, it was spotlessly clean, beautifully appointed, including a jacuzzi, and latest in room temperature controls..
The breakfast (included in the price) was elaborate and delicious. Food included:cereal, eggs, cheeses, juices, sweet breads, fruit, yummy yogurt, tea and coffee. The view was breathtaking.
Great management! They helped us negotiate the historical sites, transportaion, dinners, whirling dervish show and shopping. They treated us as if we were their personal guests.
The location puts you within walking distance of all of old Istanbul.
We hope to return to this beautiful city and would look forward to staying again at the Ada!
Great Hotel - Ada Hotel Istanbul
This place is just renovated and looks GREAT! There is a nice panoramic view of the Marmara Sea from every room, and each room is equipped with a jaccuzzi tub.
It is a five minute walking distance to all the central tourist areas, such as Aya Sofia or the Blue Mosque or the Grand Bazaar. The hotel staff are very friendly and accomodating. They speak fluent English and are very helpful.
We held our family reunion there and everyone enjoyed the accomodations. We highly recommend this place.
Great hotel with fantastic views
In this hotel I took my best picture of Istanbul - from my room's window. The hotel is a small wooden house located in a very quiet street just near the Hippodrome and Blue Mosque, on the slope of the hill. So every window in the hotel faces Marmara sea and beautiful ruins of an old ottoman mosque.
The hotel is very small and very new (it's just opened when I came there in october). And it's very cozy. Generally it's made in traditional turkish style, but there is jacuzzi in each room, so you can enjoy the sunsets on Marmara sea laying in jacuzzi.
Staff is great and very friendly. Cleaning is perfect every day. Great value for reasonable money. Highly recommended!
I*ve been 10 days in this hotel and it*s been great. The hotel is completly new. With an excelent bathroom and yakusi style bath. (Wonderfull). Place was very clean, and every day they cleaned it up everything. The breakfast amazing, was almost the best food of the day, no joke. If I'd came again I'll book the same hotel and I'll recommend it to all my friends.
