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 are many Australians, (who always seem to be on a vacation), a few Canadians and I assume the rest are Americans. We will get a full list tomorrow.

Sue and I determined that "Noah's Pudding" was what Noah's wife found left-over in the galley. Turkish Children were told that this is what Noah fed the ...
... so we ended up near the front. We had to put little plastic booties over our shoes before going inside (which was interesting in our thongs!) then we went in. We got a tour through this crazily fancy and ornate palace. They had a huge entrance hall, then we went up a crystal-banistered staircase, through many more ridiculously rich looking rooms, with massive crystal chandeliers, fancy Turkish rugs and upholstery, and there was a very pretty grand piano in one ...

Dave and I went to check it out for the next day and spent several hours, even with help of tourist office and the helpful English speaking volunteer high school students in blue shirts with "ask me" written on them, were unable to find the location.
We were sent to a place by the Green House (nice stuff but no ...
So I have my set morning coffee location already. This will kick things off everyday for sure. Safe bet. Very cool joint. It's called Nano and is run by one guy. My mate! Tourist wanderings today I think. Tick off a handful of the key sites. Blue Mosque etc. more news to come once I have been to these spots! I get the distinct feeling this city runs on an uneasy energy with a mix of danger and excitement without being too crazy. It's gritty and ...

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!.
