EXCELLENT HOTEL AND OUTSTANDING LOCATION.
Posted Apr 12, 2015
Hotel Broken Column represents the best of Turkish hospitality.Located on a quite street just behind the famous Blue Mosque, every place of tourist atraction,e.g the Blue Mosque, Aya Sophia, Topkapi Palace , German Fountain etc are not more than 10 minutes easy walk from the hotel.The tram stop of route T-1 is also very close and one can reach SIrkeci, the heart of old town in 10 minutes.The boat tour ferry jetties are also very close to Sirkeci station. one of the best feature of hotel is the excellent breakfast spread, consisting of cold meats, juice ,, cereals, many kinds of bread, eggs,fruits as well as several Turkish delicacies like Borek[cheese pastry], and various kinds of delicious Turkish cheese.The break fast is served on a sunny terrace on the top floor with a great view of Bosphorus strait and the sea of Marmara. The rooms are clean and well maintained. I will particlarly recommend Lissabon,a triple room for the view from the window and comfort and Moscow a cosy double room for its view of Marmara sea from the large french window.The hotel staff is superb.Always helpful and smiling. and offer steaming glasses of nice Turkish tea..Special credit for excellence should go to Mr. Hakan who is on duty from 9am to 5 pm and always a great friend in need. I really loved this hotel and would like to stay here again on my next trip to Istanbul.
