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.

... about in an altered state of consciousness, I feel, like I have been given twilight sedation for a procedure or something. I felt that it was prudent that I get some sleep at the airport since I couldn't do anything else. So, instead of laying there awake on the benches, I decided to take a diphenhydramine, and the consequence was that I am neither awake nor asleep, but in a zombie state, a twilight zone. I decided to get food from from Burger Kings, for one thing, ...
... skills to the test as she picked out a beautiful bracelet from one of the jewelry vendors. Having read that it is practically an insult not to negotiate on the price in the Grand Bazaar I immediately put on my best frown and told the man that his price was too high and we would probably just go to another shop to get a similar bracelet. A line he has no doubt heard a million times because without flinching he brought the price down by a few lira and after ...
... outside on the sidewalk (none inside). We had no clue what to get, but settled on the Kofte (delicious beef meatballs) and a pepper stuffed with rice. Both were delicious. We ordered one serving of each to share and ended up ordering a second serving of each!
Well, we survived our first day in Turkey! Being in this neighborhood and hearing the call to prayers over the loudspeaker, we really feel like we are far removed from the western world.
