On our recent trip to Istanbul we were lucky to stay this close to the Blue Mosque, in the charming old suburb of Sultanahmet. All the hotels in the area boast roof terraces to enjoy the views and good weather, and they all jostle for position with each other. A bonus of staying this close to the Blue Mosque (apart from it being one of the great buildings of the world, of course) was waking every morning to the beautifully evocative call to prayer, which we very much miss now that we are home.
