Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.

Helpful from before we even arrived - with a couple of emails they had arranged transport from the airport to the hotel with clear meeting instructions. Rooms were comfortable and spacious if not luxurious (totally soundproofed and even in the cold of winter very very warm).

Shared taxi, c. 20 $ p.P., common taxi c. 30 $. However, I strongly suggest to use the Metro. Get TYL while waiting for your luggage, buy two jetons p.P. at a vending machine, use the first jeton to go to Zeytinburnu (six stations), change trains there, use the second jeton and take the train to Kabatas. In c. 45' you will be in the Old City. I always use the Metro.

There wasn’t an iron in the room but I’m sure if you ask the staff they’ll provide it. They are exceptionally nice. If you want to be a little sure drop them an email and they’ll answer your questions. The room had a minibar, kettle and hair dryer like other hotels though.

Definitely you're right!... The early hours of a morning can be the footprints of an endless day... Istanbul is actually timeless... From a monument from 6th century you can easily face to a 21st century building.
