Today I came to Turkey from Doha. I went for a long walk and saw lots of people walking. I saw lots of cats and kitties -they were very cute, but they were not wild as they got fed at least. And on the way back I saw a guy being bullied as he did not give enough money to the guy who was giving him something. My hotel room is quite small cause of …
Today we got to meet Lynn and Mom has been waiting for this for a long time! I am so glad that it worked out. Breakfast was the usual plus a few extra cups of coffee before heading out. We were to meet Lynn at the end of the funicular by the Galata Tower we had been to on Saturday. Lynn would be coming from church and then we would travel …
Well, you can choose where you want to go but you can't always pick the weather! That was today. Friday had been gorgeous but today was gray and cloudy with threats of rain. Perseverance was the name of the game and warm clothes! Here's what we needed to do today-Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia, the Hippodrome, the Topkapi Palace, a trip back to the …
This morning was a great breakfast at the hotel. It was a traditional European breakfast of tomatoes, cucumbers, bread, boiled eggs, yogurt, cheeses, coffee and teas. All of us were able to find things to eat and many good cups of coffee to get me going for the day. Mom has a cousin that has lived here for about 30 years and has a daughter, Wylla …
Well, I had hoped to get back to Istanbul and here I am! I am playing legal hooky and so is Kia from school.

Historical Traveler Reviews Best Western PREMIER Acropol Suites & Spa Istanbul
The Acropol Hotel is lovely and comfortable.
The Acropol Hotel is lovely and comfortable.
We have stayed at the Acropol Hotel for over 5 times and there is no reason for us to stay anywhere else in Istanbul because Acropol Hotel is Our Home in Istanbul ! The staff were very helpful and attentive.
The roof restaurant is romantic! You can see blue mosque, St.Sophia and the other side is grate view of marmara sea.
We eat dinner there while we stay in this hotel.
The Location is in the heart of the old city, within walking distance blue mosque, St.Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Archeological Museum, Underground Cistern and Grand Bazaar.
Some of the other reviews almost make me wonder if we are talking about the same hotel...! Our room was very small, it needed renovation and it wasn't clean. It did not have a balcony (most rooms don't!), even though they promised us a balcony and a nice view. Our room was very noisy, and we could hear people talking in the room next door. The breakfast was average.
Buena realción calidad-precio. Situación excelente
Hotel de estilo otomano totalmente reformado. Las habitaciones pequeñitas peró muy límpias. Las vistas desde la terraza al mar por la mañana merecen la pena. Muy bien situado a un paso de la Mezquita Azul y de Santa Sofia. La calle es peatonal, muy tranquila. El trato con los empleados del hotel muy cordial y agradable.
Si vuelvo a Estambul, repetiré.
I took a small group to visit Istanbul and chose Acropol for its wonderful location, just a few steps from the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. It is located on a lively street with many restaurants and shops of various types. Just on the other side of the mosques is the ultramodern street tram, which makes all parts of Istanbul accessible easily and cheaply. We could not have been happier. The rooms are clean and comfortable with all the usual amenities. Both the sidewalk cafe and the rooftop restaurant (with wonderful views of the tops of the Mosques and also out over the Marmara) had excellent and reasonably priced foods including turkish specialities and international dishes more suited to the timid palate - the buffet breakfast was plentiful with fresh fruits cereals, breads, juices, excellent coffee and more. Free internet access in the basement was a real plus. Despite the liveliness of the street, our rooms remained quiet, even though we were visiting at the time of the World Cup finals which were broadcast at several of the local street cafes.
Thank you very much to all of the Acropol Hotel staff. We will come again. I hope soon.
We booked three nights at hotel Acropol through bookings.org - and when we arrived at the hotel, they told us they had overbooked but that they'd "find us another hotel - we'd pay the Acropol rate (105 euro) and they'd arrange for the payment to the other hotel". We told them that we needed WiFi in the room - which we "of course" would get.
