The hotel location - excellent!!! it's near to the almost all sight-seeings in Istanbul. 5-10 minutes walking distance to Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque, Aya Sofya and Basilica Cistern. Service- one of the most high quality service. Breakfast- very good with high quality and variety of food Rooms- very clean and beautiful. Although too small

Well, I have to say it's a pretty hotel but not as good as I expected. The breakfast is amazing. The scrambled eggs were incredibly tasty. The staff was really nice and helpful. But the bedroom was to small and the closet was a joke. They said the tea was for free but after the first day we had to... More

The buffet breakfast was amazing and the staff were very friendly and helpful, particularly the manager (Ayatullah) and a young member of staff (Ozjon), who made great Turkish and English tea. The location was perfect; the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia are both within walking distance. Overall, it was a great experience and if we were to ever visit Istanbul... More

Best localization, best breakfast, friendly staff, very good Turkish bath. The bedroom is modern and very comfortable. It's close to all the most important touristic places in Istanbul. We were allowed a late check out which was very nice of the staff

The location was excellent as it is close to the Blue mosque, the Marmara sea coast and the Hagia Sophia. There is a regular transport service through the Sultanahmet tram station from 6 am to midnight. This service connects to the airport. The accommodation was of a high quality. The 4th floor rooms on one side of the hotel offer... More

If you plan to stay at the Byzantium Hotel, which is situated in a very good location (within walking distance of many attractions) - make sure you get a good room - ours was small, pokey and overlooked the noisy front street - great shame as Istanbul is a place we would like to return to, lots to see and...

I cannot speak highly enough of our 4 day stay in this fabulous hotel. The position was great , with all major breathtaking attractions within easy walking distance.

Last April I visited Istanbul for four days and I stayed at the Dedeman hotel, which was far from the popular spots in Istanbul, but as you can read from my review about them, the experience was great in everything. For the same price, I picked the well located Byzantium for my 2nd trip to Istanbul this year, on July,... 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.
