Hotel Kybele cannot be beaten on location and service.
It puts you bang in the middle of Sultanahmet, a minute or two from the key sights - Ayia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Yerebatan cisterns, Sultanahmet Square and only another ten minutes by foot to the Grand Bazaar and the Spice (Egyptian) Bazaar. Taksim is about 45 minutes by foot, across the Galata Bridge. Good for walking off greedy dinners.
The hotel owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome, making dinner reservations for us, giving us tips about getting around and going the extra mile for us. Their taxi service to and from the airport is a must. He was the only taxi driver we met who wore a seat belt and stuck to the speed limit.
Breakfast is perfectly nice - hot and cold options, turkish tea or coffee. There is a very sweet little terrace at the back of the hotel, a sun trap painted all the jewel colours you can imagine, and we stopped there for lunch and for cold drinks on different occasions. It's a great hideaway from the chaos of Sultanahmet Square.
All was fine with our room. Wish we could have cranked the air con up, but it kept us cool enough.
Thanks again Hotel Kybele. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you.
