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.

We are now in Istanbul, soaking up this crazy city. Turkey has surpassed all my expectations. It's people are proud and generous and the landscape breathtaking. Next stop Belgrade! ...
... jammed into the tram, the air was hot and humid. When I finally arrived at the Sultanhamet tram stop, I was wishing that I had used the hotel's pickup service. Sultanhamet is a large rectangular square, with the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque on either end. It is full of people, ranging from tourists to men hawking city bus tours to incognito carpet salesmen. I waded through the human traffic milling in the square, ...
... to see comments. Chadd- thanks for the update, and we're not sure where we'll be on our 50th, but it had better be good! But where ever I am with Pete it's exciting! Erin- our little star. How exciting to be on "Dallas"- we'll have to watch when we get home. We always knew you were a star! Glad you're reading along. It's not quite the "Speckled Pallet" but I enjoy documenting things, as most know. Gran- And Happy 75th to YOU! I think I can be friends with Jess because you and Mom taught ...
