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.

Some of the walls are adorned with the most beautiful mosaic tiles, others with graffiti which is either artistic or sadly has destroyed something historical and valuable. And many many shopping opportunities. The suburbs and smaller towns are a little rough around the edges and it saddened us to see crumbling houses ...
Flights were on time and we arrived about 3:40PM Istanbul time to find sun, wind , cool temperatures (low 50s) and literally tens of thousands of tulips in bloom around the roadside. They have planted picturesque flower beds of tulips, petunias and other vibrant colored flowers all along the major roadway from the airport to the city. We pre-arranged for an airport- to-hotel ...
We woke up and got ready today before walking down to sultanahmet where we were meeting Lena and Birkan and found a seat in the shade. I bought a pretzel type bread ring to snack on while we waited then saw them get off the tram. We walked together down the road to the basilica cistern, where we lined up in the surprisingly small line to get tickets then went down the stairs. It was amazing! The whole cavern type area was filled with huge pillars, with about ...
