Situated in the newer area of Istanbul, near the pedestrian Mall leading to Taksim Square. Great for shopping. The room was spacious and clean. The best thing about the hotel is the view from the rooftop pool and bar - sensational overlooking the old city, Golden Horn and Bosphorus Waterways.

Sim was luckily enough to have the camping mat to himself while I got shafted to a garbage bag for the night. Sim's excuse was that I don't share well enough. Didn't really worry me seeing as I was awake for most of the night anyway. They had documentaries on the war running on big screens all night and a band and ...
... with her, smiling ear-to-ear! Because we were seated on the stage, we seemed to get a bit more attention than the other tables. There was an audience participation segment, and the guy they chose to participate was from the USA and he was hilarious! His moves and his facial expressions were hilarious – he really got into it. That was one of my favourite parts of the whole night!
The show seemed to transition to a dance ...

The kitchens were in this area – catering for 5000 palace inhabitants. The Harem was off this – didn't have time to go to this but it was more like the private quarters of the Sultan compared to the official quarters ( the Second Court ). The girls in the Harem were all foreigners – war ...
