I didn't had high hopes for this hotel, but even though they managed to disappoint me. The room was awfully small, the sheets were a lot smaller than the bed, our room have no view and the there was a lot of noise during the night. The only good thing was the shower.

This is the place to stay in Sultanahmet. I have traveled to Istanbul several times and stayed in at least three hotels in Sultanahmet. This was, by far, the nicest, friendliest, and best value. Our room was very nice, clean, and comfortable and it is very close to all the sights. The hotel staff is great and breakfast offers a... More

I would not recommend this hotel. Our room 202 was very cramped and the bathroom was also very cramped. The only thing that this hotel had to offer was its location. We were introduced to our bedroom. We were not told how to use the safe and there was no kettle to make a cuppa. There was no room for... 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.
