How 2 also possibly spend a weekend in Istanbul

“Long” weekend in Istanbul….


On the way down.. weather made it impossible to land in Istanbul so we stayed first night in Zurich Hilton Airport hotel.

Around lunch time Saturday We arrived at Hotel Witt and what a surprise.. the hotel had upgraded us to top corner suite.. so we just enjoyed a few glasses of wine and the view in prep for dinner

Room evening view

Dinner @ forgotten.. good food, reasonable service

Much better than our supermarket crap
