Even though I spent only 4 days at Turquhouse Boutique Hotel, I still have the feeling I was at home.
Located in an old part of Istambul, you find amazing views of the city from the "Aziyade Restauant" while having your breakfast.
The staff was friendly, welcoming with broad smiles, service - perfect. Though the rooms are small, they are always kept clean.
On the first day of our arrival we felt tired and slept too long, so our breakfast time was gone. We woke up as hungry as a wolf and started to look for a place to have something. We went into the cafe next to the "Aziyade Restaurant" and inquired about the breakfast (we didn;'t yet know anything)... though the Turkish guy didn't understand our English, he soon found out that we were newcommers and offered us breakfast for free(!) that was touching.
There is also a "Nargilevi" bar where you can smoke water pipe (Nargile), play backgammon ("Tavla") and enjoy various teas.
I think the hotel will be the perfect place to visit during summer time. If you want to get acquainted with Turks and Turkish life well, you should come to Turquhouse Boutique Hotel.
Taxi arrives within a minute. You don't have to wait long.
I will upload the photoes taken by me a bit later.
