I stayed here for four nights in July. The gentleman who checked me in said he was "upgrading" me to a sea view room. The room did have a balcony with a nice view of the sea. However I cannot imagine a smaller room. There was barely room to walk around the bed to get to the closet. The bathroom... More

We arrived very early for our reservation because of airport transportation. The very polite gentlemen offered us tea, helped us relax and gave us a map then proceeded to tell us how to find the local attractions using the map and footnotes. He then recommended a few good restaurants and told us they would be happy to allow us to... More

Staff were very helpful with introduction to the city, especially mr. Azim as he mapped out attractions in the sultanahmet city and taught us how to get around. Furthermore, they suggested suitable tours and organised all of our hotel transfers. Room was okay for three people, as we knew the size when the booking was made, it was sufficient enough... More

We booked our reservation with booking.com -- a non refundable reservation- months before our trip on what appeared to be a good deal. I reviewed the reviews the closer we got to our trip and what I feared happened based on recent review -- our room was not available and we were moved to another hotel for the 1st night.... More

I have booked and confirmed the reservation on eBooking. When we arrived, we discovered that the hotel was over booked ! No rooms availables. The hotel tried to make us pay before sending us to another poor and cheap location... We refused. And most of all, the reservation has been cancelled on eBooking : this way, no possibility to leave... More

STAY AWAY - Worst hotel stay ever!!! I have never changed hotels without staying the total booked duration until now, and I’ve stayed in a lot of hotels, many of them far from pleasing. It started when we (my partner and I) found the hotel online but they didn’t have the required room available for the first night of our... More

They arranged a room from the hotel on the opposite side of the road for one night. (Divas Hotel) (that room was not very nice but it had a bed and at that time I... More

We had booked this hotel 3 months in advance and that too room with balcony, to enjoy our stay being in the center of the city. However to our surprise, when we reached there it turned out to be the worst experience of my life. First of all, we booked hotel pick up service, but the driver could not find... 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.
