How many breathed,died,buried in Istanbul ?

Today, a drained culture and soul remained in the dirty streets of Istanbul.Here in Sultanahmet, a real traveller,a catcher can find the remains of the haunted city.Ayasofya Pensions is unique in terms of Architecture and with it reminds us.

Unique Quality: Food, Service,Rooms.. Well if you like to grab a bite of "history"

a row of 9 wooden hotel buildings with athmosphere of 19th century Ottoman style, very charming, cosy and green, but not so old in reality, just imitating Ottiman style archtrecture, it was built and opened to public in 1986, each of the houses is romantically named "rose", "jasmin"....there is no tv and air-co in rooms..to have better feeling of old Istanbul i suppose...
i read in one travel guide that it's not a good thing half of rooms having window view at Topkapi wall..and you can practically touch it with your hand...
but for me..touching such old wall would be just one of greatest experiences of my life...:) i would be honoured!
where in Moscow could i find such an old and authentic wall??

Directions: small street between Aya Sofia and Topkapi Palace walls, close to the traffic

Right next to Topkapi Palace walls

Located in a pedestrian street next to the outer courtyard of Topkapi right behind the Ayasofya. The narrow street is known as the "Street of the Cool Fountain". The houses built against the palace walls form part of a complex that includes the fountain dated 1810 that gives the street its name. The hotel is owned by the Turkish Touring and Automobile association. There are 9 hotel buildings.

Unique Quality: The hotel takes up the entire small, pedestrianised cobblestone street of Sogukcesme Sokagi. It thus has a very quaint, old-fashioned feel as the street itself is something of a tourist site because it preserves an old upper-class Ottoman neighbourhood.

It is also literally right between Ayasofa and the walls of Gulhane Park. Our windows looked out at the doems of Ayasofya, the Fountain of Ahmet III, and the Bab-i-Humayun.

Directions: It is right between Ayasofya and the wall of Gulhane Park (old outer wall of Topkapi Palace). One end is near the Bab-i-Humayun and the Fountain of Ahmet III, the other is down near the Gulhane Tram station.
