My wife and I have an overnight layover in Istanbul in June. I've been to Istanbul about 6 years ago and loved it. She has not. We want to make use of the hours we have there. Our flight gets in at 5:00 pm on a Saturday and have to fly out at 1:00 pm on the next day (Sunday).
I want to stay in Sultanahmet so we can see as many sights as possible (even if it's just from the outside). Since we only have one morning, I'd love to have a wonderful breakfast the next day..as authentic as possible. We're looking for room somewhere in the 100-150 U.S. dollars, but that's a little bit flexible. We'd like a decent room, but don't need too many amenities (other than free wifi) because we'll only be there for a night.
Any suggestions would be most welcome.
And while you're at it, I know the Grand Bazaar is closed on Sunday (I think at least). Is the Spice Bazaar open?
Thanks in advance.
