What a jewel of a find! This was our first trip to Turkey, and we decided to focus on Instanbul since the city bridges East and West, as well as ancient times and modernity. We were quite lucky to find the Kumru Hotel, which is tucked away in a neighborhood of cobblestone streets and little shops and restaurants, while being only a five to 10 minute walk either from the beautiful waterfront or the most important sites in the city (The Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, The Grand Bazaar).
The owners are like family and bend over backwards to make sure everything is perfect. The newly opened hotel features clean, well appointed rooms of a design modern yet very comfortable. They work hard to remove all potential sources of stress, including providing a quite large continental breakfast each morning, free internet access, assistance with airport transfers, and plenty of advice about where to go and what to see.
Of course we'll be back, and I can't imagine staying anywhere else now that we've found the Kumru. Enjoy!
