TravelPod Member ReviewsIbrahim Pasha Hotel Istanbul
I love this place! It is a small hotel located a few steps away from the Hippodrome. IT is just steps from the major attractions and the tram line. There is a fantastic view of the Blue Mosque on the rooftop terrace. The rooms are very comfortable and the staff is amazing. They are extremely helpful and full of good advice. The hotel bent over backwards to help deal with a few travel difficulties including losing a credit card and arriving on a very early flight. I would not hesitate to recommend this place and I will return on my next trip.

One more thing. Yesterday I used one of those squat toilets for the first time. I'm not entirely sure what you're supposed to do. Do you need thighs of steel to use these things effectively? What happens if you get the angles wrong and accidentally get some on your pants? I hope these aren't a reoccurring phenomenon through Eastern Europe.
Another early start, even though we are in a muslim city and it is Ramadan, the mighty tourism dollar does not rest. We had a prearranged small guided tour of the area of Sutlanahmet. Off the boat at 7:45 looking for 'Robert' on a sign. After a few minutes of panic, as there was every name but 'Robert' on a sign, Selime our guide from Istanbul Daily Tours arrived. Our confirmation email said that we would be in a group of 8, after ...

On the way there we walked past a gathering of people, they weren't doing anything, just standing there but there were also people with cameras and police gathering as well so we didn't hang around to see what was about to happen.
On our way home we stopped at Taksim Square for dessert, I had rice pudding which seems ...
