TravelPod Member ReviewsZeugma Hotel Istanbul
This 3 story hotel offered character and a very quaint space. I absolutely loved the antique feel. There were beautiful hardwood floors and collectors style furniture. In the bathroom was beautiful marble finished tile. The hotel had winding, marble stairs that went to the 3rd floor and the office staff was very accommodating. My only complaints (which are minimal) are the fact that there was no elevator and the automatic lighting system employed there. The lack of having an elevator was not a problem for but definitely would have been for an individual who has maybe knee or hip problems. Good value for the price.

Jerusalem was an interesting place, especially during Holy Week. I've never been in any country where religion has been such a strong and public part of the local culture. That includes the Islamic countries I've just passed through, which have public prayers broadcast multiple times a ...
... is supposed to be about. We were allowed to enter and view people during prayer which was interesting as mosques to date have not been structures we have been able to visit. Interesting that christian cathedrals are open to all (well except when they are are on afternoon siesta's in Clermont-Ferrand France:)).
The typical tourist visit continued with a visit to the underground Cistern which as we descended the stairs felt like I ...
... Sultanahmet), so I got the obligatory sites out of the way first in order to explore the more authentic neighborhoods.
Besiktas is young, lively, and not too expensive; Bebek is on the sea, trendy and expensive; Balat is working class, home to minorities, and residential; Eyup is conservative and religious;Karakoy is trendy; and the list goes on... By visiting each neighborhood I got to see the many faces and of Istanbul. No matter which neighborhood I was in, I found ...
