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.

Finally made it to Turkey. Our bags are not here yet.
After filing for lost baggage we got on the metro and transferred to the tram. That was very easy and only 2 lira for each leg. We walked to the hotel, the long way because we were off by a block.
We met up with Herb. Donna has not shown up yet.

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. A lake in front of the house had a lovely fountain where swans spurted water from their mouths and there was even terrapins in it! 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.
