The flight from Frankfurt to Istanbul was only about three hours; after retrieving our bags we were met by a Regent representative and driven through the city to our hotel, which has a great location close to the golden horn.
After taking a quick nap, we headed to the rooftop restaurant for a quick dinner. I start my day tomorrow with a visit to the Hotel Spa before we do some touring on our own!
Here are some shots from the Hotel's rooftop restaurant:
