This was our first trip to Istanbul and we stayed 5 nights here in perfect comfort. We were met at Ataturk airport and speedily driven to the hotel (we travelled next to the Red Bull Racing team as passengers with BA so maybe the driver was emulating them). The roof top view was superb, Ayia Sofia one way, Blue Mosque the other. Everything was immaculate, breakfast excellent. We had a large quiet room on the ground floor with jacuzzi. And even the muezzin at 5.00 am seemed to add part of the romance. One tip: don't bother with Topkapi: it was heaving with people. Some rooms were closed (the kitchen) and we couldn't get past the door of the Treasury. The cafe prices were exorbitant. As you can visit the mosques at almost anytime I wouldn't bother to queue at 9.00am. Go later in the evening whenb all the crowds have gone. The finest mosque was Sinam's Sokkulu Pasha, there was no-one there except the guide who offered a not unreasonable collection of photos for TL 10. Take the Bosphorous trip, really excellent. Eat at the Meat restarant 50 yds from Huyan. And cheaper but food not as good at Melase where you'll see Dervish dance. The hotel was fully booked and I suspect gets booked full most of the time.
