We were booked into the Rast Hotel by Medhills Travel when we visited Turkey. It is an old hotel in the old part of Istanbul. Yes, the rooms are small but that is to be expected in an older hotel. But that being said we would definitely stay there again. It is within walking distance to The Blue Mosque, Topaki Palace, Grand Bazaar and The Spice Market. It is in a great area with lots of restaurants and stores. The staff is great and the view from their restaurant is absolutely amazing. The buffet breakfast has a large variety of hot and cold dishes and fresh fruit. Everyone there goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable and at home. We would recommend this hotel if your are looking for a hotel that is in the center of Old Istanbul.
