TravelPod Member ReviewsAmiral Palace Hotel Istanbul
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 may go to a show tomorrow night. Today we took a tour. We hung out with a couple of single guys who were traveling on their own. It was really good. Our tour guide was wonderful and we learned a lot about Turkish history. This is a very old city that has been home to the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman empires. It has been Pagan, Christian and Muslim with all three claiming to be ...
... the Topkapi Palace, Lois needed a bathroom break. See tomorrow's post, featuring how to expel unwanted fecal matter into an orifice in the ground.
The Palace headquartered the power of the Ottoman Empire, second only to the Roman Empire in world domination. For centuries sultans ruled the empire from the palace, murdering threatening brothers and sons, ...
... in the UK. So within 1 hour we were in a taxi speeding through the city at breakneck speed, with Maddie teaching us the basic Turkish words we would need. She has been practicing at home with the aid of an iPad app and has about a dozen words down pat. Needless to say she is very popular with the locals with her Turkish! First impressions are that this is very sophisticated, orderly city. Much ...
