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.

... an enormous building with some amazing tiled fresco scenes from early Christian times. That box ticked we move on to the "underground cistern" which is an incredible water tank built under the city. A simply massive structure built 500 years ago for the purpose of water storage. For those Dan Brown readers of his latest book Inferno, this site is depicted in the last scene of his book. It is exactly as he described it in his book and makes me want to read the book again. For a ...
So most of the day was spent just getting to Cappadocia. I think my inexperience in planning a trip like this definitely contributed to this. Ideally, I should have taken an overnight bus from Istanbul. This would have saved me the cost of the one night stay in Istanbul, plus I would have saved a day by getting here really early. A lesson for the next few weeks. I got to the hotel by about 4:00 pm. Yes, I am staying in a hotel here, not an hostel. Probably a mistake ...
... a bracelet, and I bought Turkish Delight. Reunited with the boys we started our walk back to the Galata.
We could not believe how many cats we saw wandering the streets of Istanbul. Not mangy looking cats but well fed friendly cats. As we looked closer along our roads and ally ways we saw piles of cat food and containers of water left for the feral felines. We listened to street musicians and had coffee at the café near the ...
... a new and interesting experience; and it's also not every day that you get to see women walking around in full burkas at an amusement park. The park's main attraction was a red hair-raising rollercoaster called Nefeskesen, which apparently means "breathtaking" in Turkish (according to Google). Sam Jackson and I were the only ones brave enough to try it. Like several other rollercoasters we have ridden, this one accelerated brutally right out of the gate using ...
... Bosphorus and played a few hands of gin. The ride back was uneventful and consisted of us nodding off.
Since we were a little tired, we decided to find a restaurant near our apartment. We walked Taksim Square and were persuaded to dine at one of the popular cafes. Much like the night before, we loved the meze (appetizers) but were less impressed with the main course of kebabs. The service was friendly and they gave us dessert for free which was ...
