TravelPod Member ReviewsAquarium Hotel Istanbul
This family owned hotel is situated in a side street in Sultanahmet near the "Gülhane" Tram Station and in walking distance to Ayasofia, the blue mosque and Topkapi Palace.
The staff was really friendly, and "Babba" speaks fluently German.
The room was small but tiedy with a private bath. Unfortunatly one could hear all the noise from downstairs through the staircase - but considering the fact I always was tired, when beeing in my room it didn't keep me from sleeping well at all.
The turkish breakfast served on top of the building was very basic but good and adequate.
There is an internet cafe (in the basement of a souvenir shop) up the street from the Hotel which I thought was too expensive.

After Checking out of my hotel I took my final taxi ride through the city of Istanbul to Ataturk Airport to board a 1:30pm flight, my stopover would again be at Singapore's Changi Airport. After a near sleepless night whilst on the plane, the plane touched down once again at the enormous Changi ...
... because dammit I'm on vacation. The hotel is clearly non-smoking, but I asked anyway. Oh yes! We have an area in the garden - right this way! They led me to a patio where large canopies protected the furniture from the rain. One waiter scurried off for the seat cushion. As I settled back on the cushions, I realized the rosy glow over my head came from heat lamps! All this for one person! And I didn't have to pay $700 a night to experience it, only about $25. Now that's a bargain. ...
... terminal at Eminonu by the Galata Bridge. It was close to 1900 (7pm) when we caught the ferry. Fortunately, it wasn't a long ride across. We found a little cafe on the main drag by the Bosphorus and ordered a fish sandwich for dinner before returning as the sun was setting, this time to Karakoy (north of the Galata Bridge). For old times sake, we thought it would be nice to walk across the Bridge (we had dined at a fish restaurant the last time we were here over 25 years ...
... a slippery set of stairs. Our eyes had to adjust to the dark lighting before we could see anything. However, when I could finally see, my breath was again stolen from me. This underground chamber of water and pillars was absolutely amazing. It was a picturesque example of Ancient Roman architecture and ingenuity. The pillars holding up the ceiling were magnificent and awe inspiring. The pictures that I have included can show you a glimpse of this. At the end of the ...
After a LONG bus ride back to Istanbul, I finally arrived. The cab driver that picked me up from the Bus Station insisted that I sit in the front seat, and kept trying to talk to me all the way to the DENIZ Hotel, and each time he'd laugh, he'd try to pat me on my hand, or my knee. I continued to move both until he finally gave up.
I arrived at the DENIZ around 8am, and of course my room wasn't ready, so they invited me to eat breakfast while I ...
