Our hotel in Istanbul was amazing and had the nicest owner. Ozen went out of her way to give us sight seeing advise, help us with our horribly flight arrangements and she even dropped us off that the airport when we left for Cappadocia. I highly recommend staying there if you ever go to Istanbul!
The view from the roof top garden was amazing! One way you saw out over the water, the other way you see the Blue Mosque. It really left me awe struck. I had to call my husband on my new Itouch using Skype from the roof top just to tell him how amazing it was. I also wanted to try out my new toy!
