TravelPod Member ReviewsAsur Hotel Istanbul
I was pleasantly surprised upon arrival at Asur Hotel. The hotel is perfectly located just a 3 minute walk from the Gulhane tram stop and the underground metro. The Sultanahmet district is a 10 minute walk away. This is the historic center where you will find monuments and sites such as the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and the Basilica Cistern.
The reception staff were always on hand to help me out at any time of the day or night. The room I stayed in was clean and beautifully decorated. The bathroom was small, but manageable. The housekeeping staff cleaned the room well every day. The WiFi was superb.
Breakfast was a large spread and typically Turkish with bread, cheeses, some cold meats and Turkish pastries.

Day 1 Izmir (Friday). Third largest city in Turkey. Set in a bay, the Riviera of Turkey, and the most liberal city in Turkey. At last a port with only two cruise ships docked. We had decided to go to the bazaar, visit a mosque and see the very high end stores on the main boulevard. We luckily met a German couple who asked if we wanted to share a taxi. So, off we went on a wonderful drive. Along the the picturesque promenade, with many waterfront restaurants with patios. Could easily ...
... found Pavillion after Pavilion. We loved them. High, high ceilings and domes, tiled and a breeze straight off the water. A view to top all views and couches everywhere. ( You could just imagine The Sultan lying there being fanned by servants.) There was a Pavillion for everything. Everything. There was a special Pavillion for circumcision. ( I did say 'everything') Magnificent lily ponds, enormous old trees. Roses in bloom everywhere. And the white ...
... we will explore tomorrow. The landscape here is really unique, we pull off the quite road before the village and set up camp. The local farmers are bringing their animals back to the village, one stopped to chat, him in Turkish and us in English, as usual we manage to make some sense of each other. Later in the evening a car stopped on the road and a couple of chaps walked around us with torches, they didn't knock, so we stayed in side and they went away. Photos to ...
... summer is just around the corner.
After lunch, we walked down to the port, trying to find one of the recommended coffee places. After a full lap and about an hour of walking (the map not exactly to scale…), we found Bej, a cool sixties style café that served up a short macchiato – we just can't do the Turkish stuff. It requires a level of skill (to not suck up the grounds at the bottom of the cup) that takes years to learn. I think they’re in ...
... we all wanted to follow him! So we all bonded over a traditional Turkish meal at a restaurant Oscar often visits. Although it is no secret that I am a ridiculously picky eater, I have been trying all sorts of new things! Not everything was good, to be honest, but some things are definitely Sam-approved. The gyros there were very different that gyros you'll get in America, most specifically, the meat is very different. Most of us felt like it ...
