Istanbul is one of the becoming cities that is getting rediscovered in the last few years. Istanbul has a rich history of culture and lots of different people. As it’s located right near Europe, Asia and the Middle East it’s a mixture of culturals and especially for people who like to visit cities to try out different kind of foods, this is really the place to be. When we went to this wonderfull city we stayed at the Sultania which is located in Sultanahmet. We opted for this hotel since it’s located in the heart of the old historical part of the city and the most popular tourists attractions. Around the hotel you will find the most beautifull mosques, churches, and synagogues, but also the attractions as Hippodrome of Constantinople on Sultan Ahmet Square, Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia Church, Blue Mosque, and Grand Bazaar within short walking distance of the hotel. Ofcourse near the hotels are also many restaurants and shops to be found.As we stayed here we opted for the standard room for two people but there are also family rooms and single rooms available. The entire hotel is really built in a very old style and very suited to the surroundings while still having all the modern features. The room wasn’t really that large but large enough for the both of us. I thought the bed looked a bit old fashioned and wasn’t as comfortable as I would like it to be. Also the pillows could have been better. The most important thing was that the room was clean as well as the bathroom. The bathroom was very basic but had everything we needed. As we stayed on the upper floor we had a beautiful view over the rooftops of the surrounding buildings and the rest of the city. It was very impressive. All in all a very nice hotel, basic but everything that you need.
