Travel Blogs from Istanbul

The Grand Bazaar....was bizarre

A travel blog entry by jazminebattle


It is around 5:27pm here in Turkey and I just came from the Grand Bizaar in Istanbul. The Bizaar is like a flea market/street market and mall combined compares to the USA. This market is very big and is popular for tourist. They have a lot of great things but the vendors are very pushy. They were especially pushy towards me. Most of the people running their specific area are men, and for some reason, I was a ...

Culinary treats in Istanbul

... br>
The stalls in the lanes were a feast for the eyes anyway with the colourful spices piled up, fruit, vegetables, sweets, there were butchers, fishmongers…..and in amongst them are fast food places – slice off a bit of meat from a kebab skewer for instance, into a bun or wrap it goes with tomatoes, onions etc, pop it in a paper cone and away you go. It’s the start of the pomegranate season, apparently they’re a bit tart still ...

Gettin' High and Poppin' Bottles Before 7AM

... drastically contrasting shades. The canyons and gorges clung to long shadows, while the foliage deepened into a saturated green. One of my favorite memories was staring out at the giant 4000m high volcano that sat miles away in Kayseri. That mountain is what started it all, and none of this landscape would have been there without it.

For instance, Fairy chimneys (a.k.a. the phallic shaped ...

... and more easily to be appreciated. In the afternoon we headed south on to the remains of the Asklepion. A medical treatment centre built in the 2nd century and housed the first psychiatric unit. It still has running springs that are believed to have special healing substances. In the evening we went for a traditional Turkish bath which involved going into a big marble room which was like a sauna, after about 20-30 minutes BIG turkish men scrubbed the life out of ...

Topkapı Sarayı

A travel blog entry by kameron


... decided to pick up and I had no means of protection. Forty-five minutes later, kept dry thanks to a sweet Pakistani lady who shared her small umbrella with me, I entered the palace grounds. Topkapı is another example of the grandeur of the Ottoman Empire - massive walls with elaborate decorations, beautiful spaces for gardens, and enough space to comfortably fit thousands of people. Truly amazing. My favorite part about Topkapı was ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Stone Hotel Istanbul

    Little hotel with good location


    This little hotel has a very good location (5 min walk from the Blue Mosque), which enabled us to come back home for an afternoon nap before taking advantage of evening Ramadan festivities. The staff was helpful and English-speaking. We only regretted that our room was not vacuumed-cleaned even once during the whole week of our stay and that the breakfast was of low quality.

    Piccolo albergo con una buona ubicazione


    Questo piccolo albergo ha un'ottima ubicazione (5 minuti a piedi dalla Moschea Azzurra). Questo ci ha permesso di ritornare in albergo per un pisolino pomeridiano prima d'approfittare delle feste serali di Ramadan. Il personale era disponibile e parlava bene l'inglese. C'è solo dispiaciuto che non abbiano passato l'aspirapolvere nella nostra camera nemmeno una volta durante tutta la settimana del nostro soggiorno, e che la colazione fosse di qualità scadente.

    Ein kleines Hotel in guter Lage


    Dieses kleine Hotel ist in sehr guter Lage - bis zur Blauen Moschee geht man nur fünf Minuten, so konnten wir ein Mittagsschläfchen halten, bevor wir dann an den Ramadan Festivitäten am Abend teilnahmen. Die Angestellten waren hilfsbereit und sprachen Englisch. Wir fanden nur schade, dass unser Zimmer nicht täglich gesaugt wurde, das geschah während der ganzen Woche nur einmal und auch das Frühstück war nicht sehr gut.

    Un petit hôtel bien situé


    Ce petit hôtel est très bien situé (à 5 minutes de marche de la Mosquée Bleue), ce qui nous a permis de rentrer faire une sieste avant de profiter des festivités du Ramadan dans la soirée. Le personnel était serviable et parlait anglais. Nous avons seulement regretté qu'ils ne passent pas l'aspirateur au moins une fois dans notre chambre pendant toute la semaine où nous étions là et nous avons trouvé que le petit déjeuner n'était pas de bonne qualité.

    Clean, Friendly Hotel


    This is a great place to stay. My friends and I stayed here for 3 nights in 2 double rooms after researching many hotels in the Sultanahmet area. Great price and great location. The hotel is really just a few minutes walk away from the Aya Sofia and Blue Mosque. After a full dinner, you will be glad that you can walk off several minutes :-) Rooms have nice views of the Sea of Marmara. We were told to be prepare for the morning call to prayers, but the rooms must have been sealed quite tightly because we heard nothing but each others' snores! The free internet in the lobby was a nice perk too.

    Ein fabelhaftes kleines Fundstück in Istanbul


    Das Stone Hotel ist ein reizendes Boutique-Hotel im Herzen von Sultananhmet. Es ist erst kürzlich erbaut worden und alles ist neu und glänzt. Die Zimmer sind groß und verfügen über komfortable Betten, eine Minibar, Fernseher, Holzfußboden und tolle, warme Stoffe. Das Badezimmer ist groß und modern und meines verfügte über eine großartige Wanne. Ein Pluspunkt ist die kostenlose Internetverbindung - in der Lobby des Hotels. Das Hotel bietet zwar nicht viel in Sachen Essen aber ein traditionelles türkisches Frühstück ist im Preis enthalten. Dieser Mangel ist aber kein Problem weil es gleich um die Ecke viele Restaurants gibt. Und, was ganz wichtig ist: die Angestellten waren reizend und sehr, sehr hilfsbereit. Bei meinem ersten Aufenthalt kam ich um 2 Uhr morgens an und bei der Ankunft bat ich um ein Glas Wein um meine Nerven, die vom Reisen etwas angespannt waren, zu beruhigen. Ich bekam auch prompt ein großes Glas Rotwein. Als ich zum zweiten Mal ins Hotel kam wurde ich bereits wie ein alter Freund begrüst und mir wurde in jeder Hinsicht geholfen.

    Fabulous little find in Istanbul


    Stone Hotel is a lovely 'boutique' hotel in the heart of Sultanahmet. It has only recently been built and everything is new and sparkling! The rooms are large with very comfortable beds, and come with a mini bar, TV, wood floors and lovely rich fabrics. The bathrooms are large and modern, and mine had a great bath. A bonus is the provision of free internet (which is in the lobby of the hotel).

    Clean, quiet, friendly, good location


    We (couple and 1 child age 4) recently spent 3 nights in the newly renovated Stone Hotel and definately can highly recommend it. The location is app. 5 Min. walking from the Blue Mosque, the rooms are excellent, having been totaly overhauled only in May 2007 and the staff which speak english are very nice and go out of their way to provide information and be helpful. With the nice courtyard garden, the roof terrace with views of the sea of Marmara and the new rooms it really has a "boutique hotel feel" and it was among the nicest places we stayed at during 4 weeks of travel from Antalya to Istanbul. Most important for us: It is dead quiet at night apart from the muezzin at 5 am (but that you gonna hear anywhere) the rooms back from the street probably even more quiet than the seafacing rooms. Breakfast could be had either in the courtyard or on the roof.

    Avoid this flea ridden hotel at all costs!


    We had the terrible misfortune to stay at this 'hotel' for one night in Sultanahmet last week.
