I've read that the Ritz-Carlton is on a steep hill close to Takism. Why does everyone keep mentioning this? Is it unbearable to walk?
Also, if I want to go to the Sultanahmet area, how far is it and can I walk or do I need to take a cab? How much would a cab fare be from Takism to Sultanahmet?
Is the hotel close to restaurants/bars to go out at night or would I have to cab that as well?
