Istanbul, well deservedly 'the melting pot' of East and West, is located on two continents; Europe and Asia. It is seperated by a channel, almost a kilometer wide, called Bosphorus which extend from the Black Sea to the Marmara (Marble) Sea.
At the southern tip lies a small peninsula, where the "Old City" is located. This is the place which shaped the history through three major empires: The East Roman Empire, The Byzantine Empire and Ottoman Empire. The peninsula is almost ornamented on every spot with up to 3000 years old relics.
Your hotel is right in the heart of this "Old City", in the closest proximity to these fabulous monuments. It further provides you the easiest access to the airport, the main seaport and the European train station also known as the "Orient Express Terminal".
