Nice hotel on a pedestrian street and only a few minutes walk from Taksim Square. The rooms were large and comfortable but unless you request and get an "inside" room, you might be up all night with the folks walking the street until all hours of the early morning. We had a TV, free internet access, and a coffee maker in our room. The restaurant is good but not great. It is a long, but beautiful walk across the Galata Bridge to the Sultanahmet Mosque and Grand Bazaar but on a nice day it is worth it.

... our 4 ½ hour flight to Istanbul. We were happy to be flying Etihad which meant a great movie selection. Aware of the potential for another wave of panic if given too much time to think about what lay below our general flight path, I dove into a movie and got completely transported.
We landed in Istanbul around 1:30 only to see almost everyone in puffy jackets, we arrived in short sleeves. We got in a cab and made our way through the thickest traffic ...
... Muslim world, including Muhammed's cloak and sword. The palace complex consists of four main courtyards and many smaller buildings.
