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.

... and altars which are the hallmarks of Catholicism. Instead, there are simple but colourful designs adorning the walls and Arabic calligraphy reciting the Quran. The impact is no less effective. You still know that you're in a holy place.
I confess to not knowing much about Islam, so I read up on some of the information displayed on the walls outside. I'd no idea that Islam shares most of its historical figures with Christianity. ...
... military center that has been converted to a large park with historical reference. Taksim Square has become the "social, political" center where music concerts, opera and ballet is often performed. Independence Avenue runs from Taksim Square for 1.6 kms connecting to a number of modern, upscale districts. Independence Avenue or Istikal Caddesi is the main pedestrian thoroughfare along which can be found an eclectic mix of restaurants, cafes, boutique shops, ...
... so Steve took out 2 ten euro notes and the old man immediately whipped out another coin and said “2 for twenty!”. I just cracked up laughing and walked away - Steve thankfully just bought the one. Every time I think of it I burst out laughing - Steve says he doesn’t know what my problem is - he beat him down from 40Euro. LOL
Well that’s all for now. Hope you are all enjoying our trip and thanks for the comments - we enjoy them a lot. Love to all,
