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 sat in the courtyard and just absorbed the atmosphere while listening to the call to prayer. One mosque starts and then the others just seem to follow but one mosque never seems to call over the top ...
... once again we got lost. Within the first 50 metres of our walk we had a dog take a liking to us and he followed us throughout most of our journey. Before we knew it Shannon "the dog whisperer" had five dogs following. Our morning stroll ended with a yummy breakfast at our hotel rooftop restaurant. With another two days here before we set off for Ankara who knows how many more times we will get ...
