We loved our stay at Tom Tom Suites -- the hotel is modern and beautiful and historic all at once, just like Istanbul -- a completely remodeled nunnery with spacious, comfortable suites and an art gallery inside. The rooms, the breakfast, the staff were all wonderful. The location is fantastic -- in the heart ofthe city, away from the tourist hordes in the old town and in an affluent, hip part of Istanbul a half block away from a 2 mile long pedestrian-only thorough fare with every type of restaurant, cafe, ice cream parlor and art gallery imaginable. We walked there almost every night and felt like we were part of the thriving young professional political Istanbul scene. The tram is two blocks away and we took it daily to museums, the river, and the markets, always happy to arrive back at the refreshing, comfortable and welcoming Tom Tom Suites. Yes the walk to the pedestrian thorough fare is up a steep hill but it is quite short and good for the legs and appetite. If you cannot make it then you can take a slightly longer route via trolley. We found the location to be fantastic and the beuaty, comfort and service to be exceptional.
