Down a little residential side street but still close to all the attractions of Sultanahmet, this renovated traditional wooden townhouse's turquoise paint and antique carved wooden door are the first hint of the hospitality inside. The rooms are spotless as are the good sized modern bathrooms. As all the other reviews point out, the owners, a husband and wife team, are incredibly helpful and will arrange anything without being pushy and overbearing. Breakfasts are delicious and plentiful with regional cheeses and sometimes homemade baked goods from the owner Ismail. Dont miss the Sokoulu Mehmet Pasha Mosque around the corner with some of the most beautiful tiles in all of Turkey and dinner at the Kumkapi fish market whose dozens of restaurants turn into an open air all nigh party a 5 minute walk away.
The last night of our trip turned cold and we gathered around the stove in the cosy living room with other guests and made good friends from Shanghai to Perth.
We will be back for sure!More
