The hotel fits the name. A cozy nine room former Ottoman mansion on a hill overlooking the Sea of Marmara right at the mouth of the Bosporus on one side, and on the other a close up view of the magnificent domes of the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia uphill just a couple blocks away. This is how you begin each day along with a satisfying (and free) breakfast (w/great coffee) in the rooftop restaurant…a comfortable glassed-in room with optional outside seating. The guest rooms are small, but very clean and have nicely sized modern bathrooms. The hotel is extremely well located within easy walking distance of the above mentioned mosques, the sprawling Topkapi Palace, the site of the former Hippodrome, the beautiful Underground Cistern, and many nice-but-not-expensive restaurants, pubs, and shops. Even the Grand Bazaar, Spice Market, and Galata Bridge (with its many shops and restaurants beneath the roadway span, all overlooking the Golden Horn waterway) are within a 30 minute walk.
Getting to the Hotel from the Airport….
