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.

... the exhibits which included several hundred clocks given as gifts. Apparently, one of the sultans enjoyed clocks and so it became the gift to give when ambassadors came from other countries. We also toured the Arsenal which had swords, daggers, bows and arrows and rifles from approximately 400 years of history. Nate and I were blown away by a Hungarian sword on display; it was probably 3½ feet long. I’m not sure how strong one would ...
... self-important in their fluoros, competing taxi drivers who won't back down when head-to-head on a narrow Sultanahmet street, religious types in immaculate white robes, and those who work the lanes with hand trolleys full of rubbish, mobile kitchens with charcoal braziers, and knife sharpeners with foot-treadles to drive their old heavy grinding wheels. But street scenes are busy and good- ...
... Hoje posso entender melhor que não importa a cor da sua pele, a roupa que você usa, em que país você nasceu, quem é o seu Deus, quanto dinheiro você tem no bolso, o tipo de educação você teve, sempre haverão homens fazendo guerra, e cada um deles sempre terá sua razão e desculpa verdadeira, sempre haverá discussões que julgam e comparam violência e terror. Mas eu jamais deixarei de acreditar na humanidade, pois posso encontrar amor e fé por onde quer que eu passe.
