More Bark than Bite

Perhaps the first thing you notice on arrival in Turkey is the fact that many people are calling out to you, "Hello! Excuse me? Nice Family! Come. Would you like a Bosphorous tour? How about a tour guide/book/ entry card? Are you American? Sprechen Sie deutch? Parlez Vous francais? Where are you from? What are you looking for? What do you need?" < …

West to East

A travel blog entry by anavela


Most of the times, the first question that people ask me is about the duration of my flights. Normally, the answer is around 8 hours, but no matter how long the journey is, I always get excited about the whole experience. The fun begins at the airport. My favorite thing to do is observe people and guess first of all, where they are all from and then where they are flying to. Moreover, I have a good time checking their outfits as sometimes I find great inspiration on what ...

Istanbul day 2 -we've been here before!

A travel blog entry by boomermaxwell


... had been located where a vagrant hot air flow from the hot water system blew across it, so hot air system kept cutting out too early. Both the Boomer designer and builder were contrite and assisted with the fix. The locals are borrowing our tools- one would expect it to be the other way around! Caretaker showed us how to use washing machine (instructions in Turkish, of course, ) and where to put up clothes line. We feel we have done justice to Istanbul and will move on tomorrow to ...

Leaving the West Behind

A travel blog entry by benstevens


... as suspected, a carpet shop. I gingerly entered having now come too far to back out, and besides I hadn’t yet had Turkish Coffee and was determined to drink one here for free at this rug merchant’s expense.

I entered a dimly lit room and got served coffee, tea and cake, the buttering up process no doubt, and got talking to this young guy who seemed rather nice and pleasant and engaging. Ere long, his ‘uncle’ entered the room and quickly barked orders at ...

Travel Days & a little fun too

A travel blog entry by marqual


... steak, which was set on fire just in front of our table. Since I was so tired from the only 1 hour of sleep last night, and the fact that I had to pack and get up at 5:15 am tomorrow, I was the first to leave. Quite a few of the group are staying another day or few. So, I went thru the guanlet - hugging and saying goodbye to everyone. I hope I will see some of them again. I went back to the hostel and packed my bags and then got some much needed sleep.

    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.
