TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Zurich Istanbul
Upon our arrival - 3 single beds, a toilet that was so close to the shower screen it was put on an angle so you could actually sit on it to use.
Exception staff were nice, kitchen staff awful and so was breakfast.
Upon our return to the Zurich we stayed in room 121. This time we again had 3 single beds, the air conditioner did not work, however after we went and saw reception, they sent up four maintenance men. We now have the cleanest and most efficient working air conditioner than anyone else in the hotel lol.
This time we had a great bathroom and had enough room to sit on the toilet without sitting on the shower screen!
Breakfast we still not very nice, but the bread wad the freshness out of mall the other hotels we stayed at :)

... frescos are impressive but this time I was able to find the Viking rune writing ( Graffiti) on the railing from many hundreds of years ago. I had looked for it on previous visits but not found it. However it only says "Havan" (was here). We also had fun turning our thumbs in the magic pillar and then making a wish which is coming true of course. Topkapi palace is big but we covered nearly all of it. I am doubtful about the authenticity of ...
... of my favourite authors set one of his recent novels there, so my interest was piqued. It turned out to be OK. I wouldn't rave about it. Maybe I've just seen so much recently that the Palace didn't come across as all that impressive, or maybe it was just that the decorated rooms lack an impact with all the trappings and furniture removed. The harem section only contained one impressive room of the twenty or so I wandered through. It's not like ...
... sprinkled in to add color! Proceeding down Independence Avenue amongst the masses of folks even with all the commercial glitter and stimulus was cause for some interesting emotions; there was not lot of Caucasian faces in that crowd.
After walking down the street for 30 minutes, we decided it was time to try some Turkish food and headed into a three story restaurant with a smart food display in the front window that decidedly catered to the locals. We ...
