Our family of four had a great stay here on our vacation. Hotel is lovely, and ideally situated for touring historic Istanbul. Could probably have given a fifth star, but held back for a couple of reasons: 1 - Despite the impressive room description "Executive Suite King Bed", which is their largest room type, the accommodations were seriously cozy for...

Plenty of restaurants in same street. Highly recommended. One thing I would recommend for tv channels with family of children I did not see much selection of cartoon channels but... More

Rooms are large for a European standard and very nice. Breakfast is complimentary and great. Headed to the free Turkish bath next. If you go to Istanbul,... More

This location is fantastic for the most visited sites in old town. As soon as I walked up I was greeted by staff (even before I walked in). I was upgraded as I checked in, and the room was beautiful and had a pretty nice view of the street and you could see the water as well. The bed was... More

The Best Western is located on a great street, lined with shops and restaurants. Breakfast was outstanding - our room comfortable and spacious. The staff were so helpful especially Sethi. Istanbul is an amazing city with so much to see and do.

This is a clean and comfortable hotel located a five minute walk from Sultanahmet -- close to the action without being noisy and touristy. The rooms are clean and well appointed. The staff are friendly and welcoming. Breakfast is good; lots of fresh options.

Initially selected this hotel due to the comments. I do confirm that the hotel is very acceptable as building but its charm comes from the personnel who is the most friendly and helpful team ever seen. Special thanks to Abodan the most adorable waitress. I do recommend this hotel for the following reasons: 1- near the most attractive place in... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
