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.

... and got a creepy feeling about a young guy walking behind me, so I step suddenly off to the right, whirled around and stared directly into his eyes. I must have startled him or looked menacing or both (I hope I looked menacing and not just like a crazed squirrel) because he took a wide step around me. I still had that creepy feeling and looked quickly to see where Mary was. She was just getting into the bus
... experience was the anti-government protests that took place. A month before my arrival, there were some very historical and important protests and riots in Istanbul, as the country took a stand against the oppressive and conservative actions of their government. Young people are often accused of being disengaged politically, and apathetic to issues which are important. Until recently, such a perception was applied to young people in Turkey. However, the extent of the ...
