This was a great location in the heart of the old city. We could walk to most of the sites we wanted to visit. We had a beautiful view of the Marmara Sea from our room and the service was fantastic. We would recommend to anyone visiting Istanbul!

As it is an active mosque we had to take off our shoes, wear long pants and I had to wear a head and shoulder scarf. Inside, the tiles are gorgeous. There are patterns on the carpet showing the ...
... be and was told 5am which seemed very odd before even the morning prayer call at sunrise. Everywhere else does it from 7.30am onwards. I've never been in Turkey for Eid and don't know how it is celebrated here. I was going to try for 7am and if I've missed the prayer then I'll pray later.
