TravelPod Member ReviewsFaros Hotel Sultanahmet Istanbul
Initial concerns about where we where going to stay were laid to rest when we walked through the door. The greeting welcome set the scene for what was a great stay experience. The location to the key 'must see' attractions is an added bonus. We will be back

... I'm pretty sure that many of the retaining walls I've been involved in constructing over the past few decades won't be around in the year 6,500.

Troy was also the location of the famous Trojan Wars fought in the late Bronze Age between the Greeks and the inhabitants of Troy at the time.

He is teaching me the numbers now and I have to ask him how to say so many words.
As we were getting off the bus in Bursa, the ...
... with a gun looks at our passports, laughs and sends us back to the hamlet. At the hamlet it becomes clear that we need three separate stamps in our passport before the man with the gun will allow us into his country. The first stamp is easy. Hilli shows our visas at the appropriate desk. The second stamp is not easy. A little chain-smoking 'customs' man with scary moustache is playing cat with queues of harassed mice, mostly ...
... a bit, just to find out that my hotel is only about a 10 minute walk from the Blue Mosque and some of the other highlight sites to see in Istanbul. After having lunch and chatting with my mom, I made it to the Blue Mosque just in time for the visiting hours to resume. The mosque closes daily between prayer hours to allow the devotees to pray in peace without the masses of tourists gathered around. The Mosque is stunning. It was build around 1609 and uses 20,000 blue tiles to adorn ...
