A SULTAN´S BED IN ISTANBUL
Wake up to colorful Turkish textiles not only covering your bed, but also forming a luxurious canopy over your "sultan´s bed." The clean, modern room is furnished in the 18th century Ottoman style. You open the window to hear the dueling muezzins from the neighboring Blue Mosque and the other mosques of the Sultanahmet district, and see the colorful markets on the street below. As you climb the steps to the outside rooftop terrace decorated with bougainvillea and jasmine, you get a view of the sparkling Sea of Marmara on your left and the Blue Mosque on your right.
