Kybele

35 Yerebatan Cad.
Istanbul , Turkey http://www.kybelehotel.com/
90-212-511-7766

Dedicated to the ancient Hittite goddess Kybele, this boutique hotel in Sultanahmet presents a lavish, jewel-box like interior design highlighted by antique carpets and furniture, red and gold walls, curios, and more than 2,000 colored-glass candle lamps hanging from the ceilings. Only 16 rooms are available, each decorated in a similar but simpler manner, while the garden, where breakfast is served, is reminiscent of a gypsy caravan. Sitting partly over Istanbul’s famous Basilica Cistern, the hotel is in easy walking distance from most major landmarks.
