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.

After a nanna nap :-), we headed out for dinner. On the way, we witnessed a woman, who was stopped from driving down a street under repair, hurl abuse at the young man on duty. They were yelling at each other and as she turned to leave, she spits on him! Not content with that display of aggression, she then tries to run him over when another vehicle leaves the area. He meanwhile tries to stop her with more yelling, a witch’s hat and metal stand. ...
... was packed. Our museum cards did their thing again and we skipped the 500 people in the queue but not the 5,000 who were already there. The place was wonderful but its clear that it's May bank holiday weekend here and most of the people in Turkey have decided to be a tourist too. The views over the Bosphorus are, however, very special.
After the palace it was time for a late lunch. We have already realised we cannot eat more than two meals a day so a good ...

Time to Sing
After a quick break to grab some delicious Turkish food (I had some kind of chicken sandwich, I believe), we changed into our choir uniforms and started to warm up. Warm up our voices, that is. It was pretty chilly in there by the time we began our performance. Since it's an old building, however, we expected that there would be no central heating ...
