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.

... spotted a cushion cover in a shop so had an idea of a reasonable price. We did buy 2 at half the price that the stall holder had asked for one. We were intending to buy Turkish delight but the stall near an entrance where we did try to bargain may have been too close to the way out. John made a counter offer and the man just spoke on his phone. So he left the items and the stall.
We then were faced with finding a taxi in the rain. It was clearing when we finally found a taxi ...
... off bus. Waiting at the bus stop just outside the port gates was an experience. The heat, the noise, the filth. Everyone in a car just honks incessantly at each other. It's like a big game. No one is particularly angry - they just love their horns. Bus trip was good I thought - but not the others. It was a bit hot up top but we got to see all the main sights, bridges, mosques etc. Even went over one ...
Istanbul is a shopper's paradise, and because I was all Mosqued out I thought I might check out some major shopping destinations in Istanbul. I had already walked down Istiklal Avenue from Taksim square. This is an elegant pedestrian street ( the Champs Elysee of Istanbul ) ,one and a half kilometers long, lined with upmarket shops, and with many sidestreets full of downmarket shops. On the weekends they estimate that 3 million people a day visit there. I confess that I did ...
... found it. Wow - it was truly beautiful. This Ottoman Mosque took 8 years to build in the 1500's and is the largest in Istanbul. I spent a bit of time in there, soaking up the peacefulness. By 4pm I was pretty tired as I had been walking since 9am with a brief lunch stop, but I made it to the tour along with some nice people from Dublin and the US (the Dubliners came to Istanbul for the weekend....how lucky are they!). The tour took 3 hours from 4pm to 7pm and ...
... In the end, the sultan solved the problem by sending his architect to Mecca to add a seventh minaret.
The mosque is 64 x 72 meters; the dome is 43 meters high. The construction of the mosque was not as daring as its neighbour Aya Sofya: four huge 'elephant's feet' pillars hold up the dome, a less elegant but sturdier solution to the problem of support.
It gets its name "Blue Mosque" from the tens of thousands of beautiful blue, green and ...
