Travel Blogs from Istanbul
Since I started doing this blog, I have noticed that I have a bit of a trend when it comes to writing. The general rule is that the more impact a place has on me, the harder it is to write about. I think about it for a long time. I muse on the best way to present it to others. AND I procrastinate putting anything on paper. This is even more likely …
... to point us in the direction of our friends. Needless to say between the four us we bought possibly everything we could from pashmina, jewellery to lamps. Everything looked so good and if it wasn't for our limited luggage allowance we easily could have bought more, saying that I was impressed that Nicole bought a big beautiful plate and managed to fit that in her bag amongst everything else! We spent a couple of hours in the market looking around and buying and stopped when we were ...

As I am carrying my bike out into the streets I spy two men taking apart their bikes. I approach them and they are two German brothers who have just finished their trek from Munich to Istanbul and ...

One part of my brain was pushing me toward throwing in the towel, declaring a vacation, and hanging out on the hostel's rooftop terrace for two days, but the more adventurous side was really struggling with the idea of giving up 2 days of sightseeing here.

TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Marmara Sisli Istanbul
I read that the Marmara Pera was the "funky little sister" of the Marmara Taxim. I don't know about that. It didn't seem particularly "funky" from my perspective. But I may be a bit harsh on that, as I have spent a lot of time in really funky NYC hotels. But, all that being said, this is a great hotel. It is nicely situated. The staff is friendly AND helpful. The rooms are well designed and cozy. AND they just happen to house one of the top restaurants in Istanbul. Overall, well worth the price.
