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 clock room had mostly English clocks and pocket watches. There was a marbled terrace with a bathing pool set into it. It was all very impressive. After we had finished at the Palace we made our way back to Dream Catcher, as Logan had been on his own most ...
... afterward on top of that. So it's stress and anxiety combined with a sense of guilt which happens to be in no way an effective mixture. So, on the whole, the whole thing is merely frustrating. For me, I've discovered that a good thing that do would be to eat normally ahead of the big occasion and after that to merely try to be sensible during those times. It is far better to cheat with excess fat and proteins compared to carbs and sugar. But when this isn't probable, I ...
... area wasn't touristy, mostly locals. It's nice to be able to get away from the tourist hustle that seem to be at most the places we are visiting. We knew it was part of the trip but everything is so much more relaxed without the huge crowds. While it wasn't the most exciting afternoon, it was a nice change of pace.
We then returned to the hotel and got our laundry. We took it to the laundry mat which we found out was not self serve. We instead ...
... working the crowd for a tip. He was then further distracted schooling Jeff in carpets and ceramics (pronounced keramic). Don't buy carpets here, all made in China. Buy them in your country. "You understand sir?" Of course Jeff says he does. He's very smart. Alan continues to try not to laugh too loud. We want to get to our hotel. I don't get it (but staying quiet seems like best approach) and Sally and I are now having to plot a ...
