    We preferred this hotel mostly because of its courtyard. It is really peaceful and special - and comes with two adorable cats! The staff is nice and helpful. Our room had a nice balcony overlooking some historical remains.

    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
