The Right Hotel Chemistry
The old part of
town in Istanbul is called Sultanahmet.
Considering the location
and history plus the daily opening bell start (1100 hours) of Logitrans
at convenient Ataturk Airport this week, we opted out of a high rise-fashionable
show venue hotel and stayed in Sultanahmet.
The small family-run inns
and restaurants that punctuate the ancient winding stone roads and narrow
passageways are an endearing feature of this area of Istanbul.
We discovered the Ada
Hotel in Sultanahmet a couple years ago whilst admiring a 1,600-year-old
minaret, which still stands just across the street from the hotel.
Dr. Dogan Makes A House Call
Ada and companion hotel
Ada 2 just down the road are owned and operated by Dr. Dogan Sumengen
and his wife, Havva.
Up Against The Wall
We are sitting upstairs
in the garden rooftop enjoying breakfast. On the wall above our table,
smiling down on the scene below, is the Sumengen’s son, Baris, pictured
here with Dr. Dogan.
Ada Means Island
“Ada in Turkish means island, and
we consider our hotel as a place that can be reached from anywhere around
the world as a sanctuary of comfort when in Istanbul.”
