... big than expected whereas the Hagia Sophia had a reverent atmosphere, perhaps due to its low-hanging chandeliers that cast a glow at person-level but leave a dim void above your head. The Hagia Sophia also boasts some rather lovely mosaics like this one - plus the unusual combination of Christian and Islamic imagery.
We also ...

... to let him walk away. The money for her trip was gone completely. She contemplated her options: heading to the Embassy she could get herself home (but would sacrifice her plane ticket and have to pay for another one), or she could struggle forward on the charity of her friends and try to complete her trip. The latter option won out (luckily for me), and she was able to get a few loans from friends at home and continue her travels.
All of this deeply resonated with me, as I ...
... t really like to waste much time on our trip as you probably noticed so we were up and at em early. A Turkish breakfast which included eggs, olives, tomato, bread and cereal was included in our breakfast. Then we checked out and headed to Hagia Sophia. Just as impressive as the Blue Mosque from the outside it cost 20 Turkish Lira to enter. You pretty much divide this by 2 for AU$ and 3 for the GB£. Just ...

A few minutes later, I saw him trying to ask a Turkish man outside for help, also with no luck, so I just pointed to the things on his map, like the Hagia Sofia, then pointed to the real deal. Hopefully this helped? Through about 1pm, I humored myself, revisiting several markets, this time hustling and bustling more than ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Divan Hotel Istanbul
Un personal muy amable y atento
Alojarse en el hotel Diván te hace sentir como si estuvieras alojado en casa de tus amigos, son tan agradables y serviciales y el Hotel Diván es también como tu propia casa. Me quedaré allí de nuevo cuando vuelva a Estambul, yildirim enes (También tienen un estupendo desayuno incluido).
Un buen lugar donde alojarse por un precio razonable
Es un lugar estupendo donde alojarse en la zona nueva de la ciudad. Espacioso y limpio, del estándar de un 4 estrellas. Cuesta sólo una fracción del precio que cobran las cadenas internacionales (por ej. El Hilton). Hay un excelente desayuno estilo buffet. El acceso a Internet de alta velocidad gratis en la habitación es genial, aunque es un poco lento a veces.
Das Divan Hotel ist eine erstklassige Unterkunft im Herzen von Istanbul!
Dies Hotel war spitzenmäßig, vom Anfang bis zum Ende unseres Aufenthaltes. Die Angestellten kennen sich in der Stadt gut aus. Das Hotel ist perfekt gelegen - nah am Platz Taksim und auch Beyoglu (5 Minuten). Die Metro, die gute Anschlüsse zu den anderen Sehenswürdigkeiten von Istanbul bietet , ist nur wenige Minuten entfernt. Der Service und die Qualität der Zimmer waren hervorragend. Ein Dankeschön geht an die Angestellten des Hotels für diesen einzigartigen Urlaub. Wenn wir noch einmal die Chance haben, werden wir noch einmal hier buchen
Gute Unterkunft zu angemessenen Preisen
Gutes Hotel um im neuen Teil des Ortes zu übernachten. Großzügig und sauber zum 4 Sterne Standard. Es kostet nur einen Bruchteil des Preises, der von den internationalen Hotelketten (z.B. Hilton) verlangt wird. Gutes Frühstücksbuffet. Gratis Breitband- Internetzugang auf den Zimmern, obwohl dieser manchmal recht langsam war.
Divan Hotel was a top notch accommodation in the heart of Istanbul!
From the moment we entered to the hotel and till to our departure this was a top notch experience. Very knowledgeable staff. Locationwise this is a perfect hotel close to Taksim Square and also Beyoglu (5 minutes). Metro that provides transportation opportunity to other Istanbul attractions is only a few minutes away. Service and the room quality was excellent.
Thanks to Divan Hotel staff for this unique experience. We will definitely stay at Divan Hotel again when the opportunity arises.
Good place to stay for a reasonable price
Great place to stay in the new town. Spacious and clean at 4-star standard. It costs only a fraction of the price charged by international chains (e.g., Hilton). Excellent buffet breakfast. Free in-room high-speed Internet is great, albeit a bit slow at times.
Very kind and gentle staff
Staying at Divan hotel makes you feal like as if you are staying with your friends, they are very friendly and helpful and Divan hotel also is like home i will stay there when ever i am in istanbul ,yildirim enes (they also have graet free brekfast )
My wife and I stayed at the Divan Hotel in May 2004. We paid $ 89.00 per night plus tax, breakfast included. Their Turkish Delight breakfast buffet was excellent. Divan bakery is one of the best bakeries of Istanbul. The service was perfect. We had no problem at all with anything. We shall go back to this hotel with pleasure when we go to Istanbul.
Air condition? Yok !
We ordered a room through Expedia for the rate of 120$ per night. On checking in we were informed that the rate including tax is 142$. We got a small room with a bathless bathroom (only shower) on the noisy street side. Although the air condition was ON - the temprature in the room was very high and a very strange smell came out of the AC system. We called reception desk and they promissed to send a technician . Nobody showed up for hours . Only after three times we went to reception, they admitted there is NO aircondition at that time of the year. The weather in Istanbul was at least 28 C . Only after we told them we will have to leave the hotel they moved us to a better room - bigger and cooler. We will hopefully visit Istanbul again - but Divan hotel was a great disappointment for us.
A fine value
Quality and competence are the hallmarks of this fine, older, five star hotel. Rooms (especially the bathroom) are on the small side, and there's no pool, but otherwise the Divan compares favorably with the Hyatt, Hilton, and Intercontinental hotels at a fraction of the price.
The Divan's restaurant, patisserie, and pub are among the city's best. And the business center offers free e-mail access.
