Llegar a Estambul fue un largo camino, nos levantamos en Patmos, tomamos un ferry de una 1½ hora y arribamos a Samos, una isla grande, 40 mil personas. Tomamos un taxi y nos fuimos al puerto principal de la isla, desde donde partiríamos a Turquía.
Almorzamos la última ensalada griega, se paso!! Y partimos a esperar el ferry; conocimos a …

There was a photography exhibit but I'm not a big fan of photography in general. One piece that stuck out was a man who photographed his wife everyday as she went off to work. My first thought was, why did she marry him? Also, how did she dress in a different outfit (albeit with some repeating pieces) for 30 days? Those questions were probably not the ones the artist had hoped to ...
... with a carpet! Just another quick side note: up until this point we had had many people come up and try to sell us things (this is quite normal in any quality tourist spots) - however once we said a polite 'no thankyou' we would get a smile and they would walk off again. Compared to Bangkok or even Rome, this was so easy and nice!! We made our way to the Grand Bazaar, and it was huge!!! We put on our game faces and entered into the labyrinth! Happily, the same rule applied in ...
... for being the place where Asia was just across the water. There was no line the kids could straddle, so with the bridge that connected the two continents in the background as we headed out of port, we used an imaginary line that centered with the middle of the bridge and pretended it existed. Tomorrow we will be in Asia.
Late port call tomorrow for Ephesus. It's turned chilly. Sweatshirts came out for deck time tonight, but the rain has been good to us with its timing. ...
... home to a famous school for sculptors as the area had a quarry of high grade marble nearby. From Pamukkale we drove to Dalaman and then flew to Istanbul. We are here for eight nights. PS While in Pamukkale we sat in a restaurant and watched Queensland win the State of Origin with the travertine cliffs in the background. The poor blokes working the in restaurant had no idea what was going on but they clapped every time we cheered when Queensland scored. It was lots of ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Ipek Palas Istanbul
The place is convenient to those who would like to walk and discover new places around. It is nearby the big mosque, the metro and the market.
The only thing I don't like is that their elevator is so small and scary.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Ipek Palas Istanbul
I lived for 5 months in Istanbul to study. Whenever I had guests coming over from Holland I booked room in Ipek Palas. First time I stayed there with my sister and we liked it very much. The room was small but very clean. Also bathroom was clean and opperational. The beds were very comfortable. It was lovely to take a rest there after a long day in this magical city.
I travel a fair bit internationally and basically live in my suit case. This is the second time i stayed at Hotel Ipek Palas in Istanbul, It is definitely not a 5 star hotel but the service, pricing and location was important... specially long stays in Istanbul and the location.. Basically, all public transport at your doorstep, lite-railway, train, busses and ferryboats and of course restaurants and small bars.
Personal perfekt sehr freundlich, höflich
Ich möchte mein bestes für dieses Hotel schreiben.
Besonders die Sauberkeit, die Freundlichkeit des ganzen Personals hat mich fasziniert.
Das Frühstück war auch sehr gut.
Die Lage des Hotels ist sehr gut nahe dem Meer und in der Naehe von Sultanahmet die Sehenswürdigkeiten von Istanbul z.B. Hagia Sophia Museum, die Blaue Moschee etc.
Das naechste Mal, wenn ich nach Istanbul komme, werde ich sicher in diesem Hotel bleiben.
I was robbed
During the night,someone broke into our room and stole our money,valuable things.DON'T GO THERE!
L'extérieur du bâtiment peut faire un peu peur, la construction ne date (très) visiblement pas d'hier mais cela peut être trompeur.
This hotel is a historical but immaculate hotel with astonishing views of the Sea of Marmara, the Bosphorus, the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia from the terrace. A short albeit steep hike uphill brings you to the entrance of Topkapi Palace. The breakfast restaurant in the terrace beds are comfortable,the air conditioner works well.It has a very popular place as it is so close to many important places around.
Careful, apparently all the web sites give totally misleading information and terrible lies.
Just...don't go here!
This hotel I would definately NOT recommend, the service is absolutely lousy. The prices may seem low, this appears to be possible because of cost reductions on cleaning personnel. Also don't expect anything from the reception-people, especially a younger guy who's name I don't remember right now.
Their website states: "LAST FEW rooms remainging!". I really wouldn't take this seriously as during our stay we appeared to be the only people in the hotel. I gather the last because of all the keys I saw at the reception whenever I got in or left the hotel!.
