Subject: Istanbul Hotels for Ken
We have stayed twice in the Yesil Ev

which is close to the Blue House which Richard's friend recommends. We would return to the Yesil Ev (Green House) in a hearbeat. The best place to stay, we feel, is in Sultanahmet as most of the historical places are there. Also, we have purchased art work from the Craft Center next door. Gretchen, SC
