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.

... we have already been to 5 times, Babel. As it’s a city that never sleeps, we get there at 10.30, have dinner at 11 as the restaurant closes around us, we go on our way at 12. Andrew and I promise that this is the last time that we will go; 6 times is enough :-)
On Friday we tried a pide (an open pastry shell in the shape of a long submarine, filled with cheesy and pizza type goodness) at the Spice market. On the way home, we were walking along the street and bumped ...
Today was our last full day in Istanbul. Les decided that he wanted to go see the Old City walls, which I wasn't interested in, so he headed off without me while I caught up with my sewing. I discovered a few free craftsy tutorials which I watched and basically mooched for a while. For dinner we went to the same place as yesterday, this time I had the wild mushroom chicken dish. Not bad, but far too much, all the servings here are massive. We then wandered ...
... heading onto the ferry. Seems like the whole city is out right now. Great atmosphere. I'm going to miss the atmosphere the most; there's a liveliness and sense of community that doesn't exist in Toronto, even during the summer.
Sat on the side of the boat on the way back, which is ...
