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 :)

We left 25 minutes late and arrived at Istanbul airport at 5.30pm, then we had to endure the Long and very arduous journey to our hotel, the Hotel Zurich.

... there was a few things certainly making the visit worthwhile. These included the "sword of David", the staff Moses used to part the Red Sea, a moulded footprint of the prophet Mohammad, and one of the worlds largest diamonds. It's lunch time and after convincing our guide that we weren't going to the cafeteria in Topkapi Palace (where he probably got a kick back), he punished us with a 2 or 3 km walk down towards the port where he took us to one of the best Turkish restaurants ...
... orient me to the place. I finally ended up walking for about two hours. The place is beautiful. Goreme is itself a very small town. Walking in any direction for 10 mins takes you outside the town, and into this "other worldly" landscape. I guess an apt description considering that they filmed "Star Wars" movie in this area. But for me, the biggest difference has been the change from the chaotic Istanbul to this small town that is deafeningly quiet by comparison. ...
The Galata 1875 presented us with cards for a complementary breakfast at a little restaurant half a block up the street. We donned our puffy jackets and ventured over. The proprietors did not speak English, a basket of bread was placed on the table and each of us presented with a plate of one hardboiled egg, cucumber slices, tomato slices, cheeses, olives and jam as well as traditional Turkish tea. It was ...
... was a nice change to walk around a modern, Western-style mall with a few brand names we could recognize like GAP, Starbucks, and Nike. We bought Sam Jackson some new socks and a couple of Nike sports shirts for his birthday. One of the main lessons we've all learned on this trip (and that hopefully we will retain after it's over) is that you don't need a lot of "stuff" to be happy. So he was really happy with his new clothes. We even managed to find a movie in ...
