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!

It was great :) We spent the rest of the evening saying our goodbyes to the crew. It was really sad to leave our amazing server Namik, who we spent hours with us at the dinner table ...
... another comedy act as the young waiters made fun out of showing me how to prepare my eat my dinner the Turkish way, They speak English but I still have no idea what they are saying. Walked again to the Gulhane park, back to the hotel of course picking up turkish delight. YUM Tomorrow is a 6.30 am start, so that's it for ...
