This is definitely one of my favorite places in Istanbul so far.  It has just the right mix of glamour and artful disheveled-ness.  It’s showing it’s age, but that just makes you realize how OLD it is (completed in 537).  It was also featured in From Russia With Love, not nearly so empty in there as James Bond had though.
