Great location in Sultanahmet, short walk to Hippodrome, Hagia Sophia,Grande Bazar, etc. Tram stop nearby. Huge rooms, amazing rooftop views and Mustafa managing with intelligence and grace. A few insignificant signs of age but very comfortable and enjoyable stay.

We booked this hotel as part of a multi-city package with an interest in value for location and maximizing our budget. We selected Ferman in part due to the positive response from other TripAdvisor users and it did not disappoint. First, the hotel's location is every bit as convenient to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern, and Topkapi Palace... More

My friend and I stayed here and loved, loved, loved it. The staff were amazing and seriously the best I have ever come across. They let her into the room even though I had not arrived yet and let us both in early, with access to breakfast. Our door would not shut and they fixed it right away. Other than... More

It was centrally, located, the room was large and comfortable, the staff great, the breakfast, served on a roof terrepace over looking the sea of Mamara, was excellent and the wonderful young woman in the kitchen was more than happy to make omelet so, fried eggs, etc. This is a place to stay without...

We arranged pickup from the airport through the hotel, and it went smoothly. We were warmly greeted by Mousi (sp ?) who genuinely seemed interested in our well-being and comfort. He was a good source of information. The hotel is very quaint and located within easy walking distance to the most important tourist sites. Breakfast was very tasty and filling... More

He helped us with our requests and did everything and beyond... More

After staying in a decrepit hotel on the other side of the city, this was a breath of fresh air! Extremely helpful staff, fantastic rooms, and the view from the upstairs dining area was something else entirely!

Having stayed elsewhere in sultanhamet ...I was stunned by how incredibly helpful, gracious and accommodating ALL the staff were at the Ferman. From our arrival the doorman and bellboys rushed to help us with our luggage, taking them to our huge and comfortable room. We were offered tea of coffee and Turkish delight!

I loved this hotel! In a fabulous location - so easy for Sultanahmet and a short walk to the tram stop to explore the rest of Istanbul. Rooms are comfortable and staff are super friendly. A real highlight for me was breakfast on the rooftop terrace with views of the blue mosque - stunning :) I will definitely be returning!

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.
