We stayed in a private room with a terrace. Comfy beds, good AC, quiet. Breakfast was good but we missed Turkish yogurt. Mustafa and Yusuf and the other guys were excellent hosts and we liked talking to them!

A good price in the downtown area for a reasonable price. Large rooms with your own bathroom and a quiet atmosphere. Its a quick walk to nearby museums and large attractions. Also the metro is within walking distance.

Really recommended for those who are looking for a great location, it is next to the blue mosque and Santa Sofia, you can visit all historical places walking. The staff is amazingly kind and helpful with whatever you need; breakfast is quite good and included, and there's a terrace with incredible views where you can chill whenever you want. Thanks...

Very nice and clean hostel with beautiful view from the terrace and very friendly staff. Although the hostel is not very cheap it's worth to spend some more money on staying there and having all major atractions of the city at your fingertips (Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazar etc.). They also have a restaurant next door where they serve... More

Near to Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. Located just behind those landmark. Good breakfast, clean bedroom and wifi function well. I went there during winter and the heater is water based which is good. Around the hostel has many restaurants to hang out. However, you may watch out for narrow stairs. Need to be careful when carrying heavy luggage via... 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.
