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.

This is why mosques are highly decorated with intricate designs, but usually have very few figures (and if there are figures then their faces will look neither female nor male, nor have any expression).

... in Istanbul at 1 o'clock, then we got our bags and got picked up by our tour guide, Ahmed. We got driven to the hotel Kent, and unpacked our bags before we went for a walk down the road. We walked for about an hour and a half and there were lots of cats and mosques. We went back to the hotel for a bit before we went out for dinner. For dinner we went to a kebab and stuff restaurant, we ate chips salad and meat. We went back to the hotel and went to ...
