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.

He did manage to get some middle-eastern sounding melodies in the end so he was happy.

... Two very similar people. The traffic was mental. They has shut down part of the motorway because of an election rally. The drivers were crazy but nothing compared to the passengers hanging out the windows with their candidate flags. After we finally got to the hotel we checked in and had a much needed shower. We got ready to meet up with Renee so we could go to the Grand Bazaar. The Grand Bazaar was another mad house. It has hundreds ...
... and I had to wait outside for half an hour. After they finally came out they gave me the lowdown. Only one toilet was operational and two others were full with woman that didn't come out for all the time that they waited. Then when Kristy was washing her hands, they emerged in full covered garb and left without washing their hands- slow and unhygienic. Gross.
Time to leave the palace and get some food. We finally settled on a little ...
... Ozzie!" One grabbed my camera, saying he'd had experience taking photos for Playboy, and snapped a photo of me in his shop. If he HAD actually worked for Playboy, I felt in complete contrast to his usual models in my thick plum-coloured jacket!
For 2.50 lira we scored ourselves big chicken rolls, which would be inconceivable in Australia. I also bought some sahlep from a street vendor, which I proceeded to spill all over the floor of the ...
... I went into a Starbucks and got a water bottle and interesting sandwich with two different types of cheese and tomatoes, it was called Mystic. It was pretty delicious. Our concert pieces consisted of the spiritual songs in English and the space was gorgeous in the church. The Turkish audience seemed to really enjoy our performance and I am looking forward to singing again. We sang ...
