Location - The very city centre of the old town within walking distance to the main tourist attractions, shopping area(the grand bazaar), nice restaurants and bars. This is very useful as Istanbul's traffic can be very horrific. Service - Not very good. The first night we arrived, the staff could not find our reservation. Then, he put us in a... More

Had a great experience at Byzantium! Staff was very friendly and helpful, and being in the center of the "old city", its walking distance to the Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia and many other historic sites. The street is filled with shops and cafes though a full breakfast is included (nice for budgets). Rooftop decks are a must in the evenings,... More

Its own roof top restaurant has a great view to the ocean on one side and the blue mosque the other. The rooms are nice and clean, just a bit squeeshy. Not much space for... More

The hotel is very close to all the main sights. The street it is on contains many restaurants but even so is not particularly busy or noisy; and our rooms had good double glazing which kept out any noise at night. They also had good air conditioning and were very comfortable despite the heat. There was a generous and wide-ranging... More

Location was ideal. I think any hotel in Sultanhamet is a 5 minute walk from the major tourist spot, Byzantium wasn’t any different. We got an amazing offer on Booking.com for 2 nights in a Junior suite facing the sea. Room was quite big and well furnished. In fact, one of the shopkeepers nearby was telling us Byzantium has the...

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.
