This hotel has an excellent location - right in the center of very many main Istanbul attractions.
The building is old, which adds certain sharm to your stay, and the hotel room had all necessary things, and was quiet at night.
Overall - very modest, but a good value for money.

... to another of Istanbul's famous markets, this time it was the spice bazaar where we walked the numerous ally ways and streets listening to the banter of shop keepers and enjoying all the sights and smells on offer.
Considering how flu ridden we had felt earlier in the day we had still managed to cover a decent distance but wearily we made our way back home.
Not really feeling up to dinner and knowing we had a very long day heading to Gallipoli the next day we ...
... GR was a problem, it kept falling off
- the Hippodrome was built in the 4th century, primarily for chariot racing and was at that time the greatest sports venue in the world (seating 100,000 fans). There is very little of this left to see, except a couple of obelisks which decorated the centre of the track. They include the Egyptian Obelisk created c. 1500 BC and move here from Egypt in 4th century AD. ...
