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.

... never been in line to board and 'watched' them add it. Then once on board the young woman sitting next to me began hyperventilating because she was 'scared'! She's sitting here now,.....blowing in a paper bag, with sweat dripping down her neck. Ok,....slow, deep breaths Debbie,.....slow deep breaths!
