We stayed here on the beginning and end of our tour of Turkey. The location is nice. Just below the Blue Mosque. You can see that from the rooftop dining area. That is a nice place to sit on the evening. Just a block away from a street full of restaurants. Walking distance from the Sultanahmet tram station. Front desk staff were pleasant and helpful. They called many times to the airport checking on my lost luggage.

We had a quiet night and woke refreshed, after breakfast we walked the short way to the Main Street, the end where we joined the street was mostly restaurants, but as we walk along, the shops were all top designers. Rolex, Armani, Louis Vuitton etc. We looked in the windows, the prices were 1000's of TL. A little out of our league, but nice to look. Further on there was a Marks and Spencer, we went in, it was more like a boutique than a department store, there was music ...
... feel. I almost imagined the rooms with a couple of National Trust matriarchs ready to answer questions. We walked back along the palace perimeter where large gates and ornate fences border the busy Bospherous.

In the afternoon we decided to visit the Basilica Cistern constructed in 542 AD, it was built to provide the ...
... br> It was still raining when it was time to leave for the airport. We had an eight minute walk to the metro and were please with our decision as we looked out the window and saw traffic on the expressway at a standstill. 40 minutes after stepping out of our hotel, we were in the security queue at Ataturk Airport on our way to Morocco.
We’ll write the next chapter of our story on our Morocco blog.
... We then returned along the Asian coastline, which contained numerous well-maintained homes.
Leaving the Bosporus, we traveled into the "new city" part of Istanbul. We departed from our minibus in Taxsim square. This is where there was a serious confrontation this summer between members of the Taksim Solidarity Platform and the Turkey government over the proposed destruction of adjacent Gezi Park for a new ...
... people. To the airport!! OMG... has anyone every flown out of Ataturk Airport? This as chaos of the highest order. We waited in line for over an hour and there were only 5 people in front of us in each queue (we hedged our bets!). No idea what the holdup was although watching a female clerk argue with a Saudi man was entertaining to say the least! Vicki was home in Kuwait before my plane even began to taxi down the Tarmac...I wouldn't be home for another 25 ...
