Having only two days to see Istanbul, I took a chance on a new hotel located directly in historic Sultanahmet Square. The hotel is well-built into the local architecture, and as a female traveler I felt very safe in this area. My room was lovely with a balcony overlooking the Bosphorous, and was spotless.
The hotel owner Mehmet-was extremely helpful, and made excellent suggestions about where to go, to eat and to shop. His suggestions are what made our trip.
I enjoyed the traditional Turkish breakfast and cheerful staff even brought our breakfast and coffee up to us on the roofdeck. The deck will be renovated more in time, but even now the views are breathtaking both day and night. If I were to go to Turkey again I would most certainly stay here, as there is so much to see within walking distance.
