I went to the Legacy Ottoman Hotel when I wanted to take a break from the crowds of the Grand Bazaar. I had become separated from my traveling companions, so I decided to try the hotel rather than a cafe as I searched for a place to have tea. The people at the reception desk welcomed me and indicated that I could get tea at the restaurant on the ground floor or at the rooftop bar. I went upstairs and found a space that, though somewhat tired, boasted an excellent view and a very good staff.
The staff did not speak much English, but they were very helpful and eager to make my visit pleasant. When it became clear that I could not have much that was on the menu due to a gluten intolerance, the manager had the chef prepare a plate of grilled vegetables for me. I enjoyed it with tea and champagne. The cost was well below what I had anticipated.
The visit was a great break from the intensity of the crowds in the bazaar. I hope that I have an opportunity to go there again!
