Sultan Palace Hotel (3*) is a small, but comfortable boutique hotel located within the old city of Istanbul, Turkey. Its close proximity to many famous landmarks is the reason why my BFF and I chose to stay there for three nights.
Assorted Stuff #1
The hard-boiled egg wasn't overcooked with a moist centre, while the omelette could use a bit more salt. There wasn't anything to complain about the cold cuts, pickled olives and cheese. I was actually amazed by the cherry tomato, which was truly fresh and juicy.
Assorted Stuff #2
The sigara boregi (Turkish cheese roll) was pretty crispy on the outside, but the cheese filling inside wasn't as delicious as what was offered by Hotel Baylan - Basmane in Izmir. The simit (Turkish bread encrusted with sesame seeds) wasn't disappointing at all as it was highly crispy. On the other hand, the raisin cake was a tad hard for my liking. I'm pretty sure some of you may have seen the chocolate-covered biscuit in the supermarket, no?
The variety of fruits offered was amazing. Shown on the plate were only some of them, and they were fresh.
Grape & Orange Cordial Drink
I had a preference for the grape cordial drink over its orange counterpart. The former was refreshingly sweet and sour, while the latter was mainly sweet.
Pika's advice: One thing to note is that one has to go down steep slopes to reach the hotel, and that means hiking up the said slopes is inevitable. While the overall score given may not be that high, I have to say that the sigara boregi was really good.
