TripAdvisor Reviews Prestige Hotel Istanbul

... near Istanbul by about 5. I had the hotel on the GPS and watched the distance drop increasingly slowly as the traffic built up. Then the last 2 km. It was entertaining in a weird way, just as our taxi drive had been only this time we were in a bigger vehicle. With 1.5km to go, Huysein asked if he could leave us – it was a token ask as he had no choice as he had to be at the office before 6 and it was 5.40.

Unfortunately, due to our slow start, we had missed the ferry by the time we got to the docks. We regrouped and decided to get ...
... Palace...the palace of the Sultans, with its exquisite harem! The cistern (underground resovoir) was evocative due to the music and lighting but well worth a visit to see the columns with the Medusa Heads. We sacrificed our ability to understand you "get what you pay for" on the Bosphorus cruise...oops we didn't capsize and drown! No visit to Istanbul would be complete without shopping (sacrificed our remaining funds) and a visit to ...
