Just back from a week's vacation in Istanbul; my first trip there, but with experienced friends, who returned to Berk after 15 years. Really lovely family-owned and -run small hotel across the street from the Four Seasons (formerly the prison where "MIdnight Express" was filmed) with views of Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque from the amazing roof deck. Staff were all very helpful with restaurant recommendations, directions, and reservations. What makes the place is Yeshim, whose grandma's house is now Berk. The warmth and openness of her welcome really makes coming back to the hotel after a day of sightseeing or dinner feel like coming home.
