Honey on the comb We're staying in a small hotel in the old part of the city, now called Sultanahmet, just steps from the Blue Mosque and with a view of the Bosphorus from our window.
The breakfast buffet is basically Turkish, which is fine by us. A great feature is the honey – if you want some, just cut a chunk of comb!
Another nice feature was that towards the end of the afternoon, as we were resting in our room, a knock on the door signaled the arrival of three members of hotel staff holding a birthday cake for Polly, complete with candles and two sparkling sparklers!
A nice, friendly place!
