Perfectly located for Blue Mosque and most sights of interest. Sadly too close to recent suicide bombings. Staff very friendly, attentive and went out of their way to make the stay a memorable one despite the underlying problems in the area

Ideally located in Sultanahmet, close to the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia. It was easy to get around the city from here, either by walking or taking the metro. The thing I particularly enjoyed was the restaurants and bars close by, after a long day of walking and sightseeing it was really nice to be able to go back... More

This was one of a few I have stayed in Istanbul now and the location being not too far (2mins) from the blue mosque, hagia sophia and sultanhmet tram line is a big bonus. Lovely hotel great staff and clean rooms too. Breakfast was good. Recommended.

The hotel has an excellent location, walking distance from the main attractions. Breakfast is good and the room was clean. Bathroom with a good shower head and the required toiletries and hair dryer. The room, even though was for three people, was very small and it was hard to fit the luggage and still be able to move. The spa... More

staff are very friendly and helpful and they really care about their customer's satisfaction , location is perfect, quiet, beautiful, great neighborhood . standard an annex rooms are very small and you feel like being in cage! breakfast is not great but not bad. I recommend the superior double if the price worth in compare to other options.

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.
