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.

They were dropped off by taxi, which most definitely ripped them off, at the city's original walled gate at the far northern outskirts of Istanbul, on the western side of the Golden Horn. Their map was clearly not accurate and, in the blazing heat, they walked through winding old streets, up and down hills, around numerous churches, mosques and synagogues, but could not find the meeting point. Chad did, ...
We headed past Istanbul University before making our way through the back streets to find the Bozodogan Aqueduct. There are so many interesting things to see in these back streets. We walked our way down to the river and crossed the new town bridge in order to get to the other side and see the magnificent views of the old town.
Up and up we rose towards Taxim Square before heading down towards the Golden Horn in order ...
... only encountering the opposite sex. I quickly decided to throw my cardigan over despite the warm weather already at 9:00 am no longer feeling comfortable in a short sleeved, but not at all sexy polo shirt being looked at with a slight frown.... by the few women I encountered. When in Rome... I do have to say, that I feel much safer and less bothered than in Madrid, as one is not constantly being "verbally attacked" to buy ...
