Since the other reviews echo our sentiment, my focus will be the staff which made all the difference. The "morning guy" as we called Tugrul is charming, patient and well informed about his city. The "night guys" Serhat and Hayrettiz (not sure about that spelling) are just as helpful and kind...genuine interest in our comfort and ease. And all three are beautifully dressed. Danett, again spelling...is warm, quick, friendly, a darling woman....she provides the lovely presentation of fresh vegetables, breads, eggs etc. every morning. Kerim is all around capable for every kind of repair or request...sweet smile too. The two TALL handsome young men for so called "services" are Koray and Mujdat (spelling?) are full of warm smiles, a helping hand or arm and all too happy to keep the music on a station full of popular, modern Turkish singers....I could hear them in my sleep!
We spent almost one week in Istanbul at the end of August and experienced Victory Day on the 30th of that month. If anything, we regret not being better informed or educated about this part of the world. That would have made our wanderings far more meaningful. Next time!
