I stayed at this guest house for a week in total. Very quiet environment and feel like in my house. Especially the roof top as public space is clean and the guests could enjoy calm atmosphere. And the breakfast is really valuable, I thought it was the one of the best quality in Istanbul. And you can drink a free... More

Not only is this hostel extremely well situated, not only does it have a great room for hanging out (check the incredible view from the balcony and roof), fast reliable wifi, and one of the best hostel breakfasts I've ever come across, but I got really sick while I was there and every member of the staff checked on me...

I stayed in Agora for one night on my overnight lay over on my way to Italy and another night on another lay over on my way back to the US. Since I have limited time in Istanbul, I have limited things I can do in Istanbul. Unfortunately, I didn't take into consideration a few things like travel time from... More

Because I can not find another explanation for how all of them can be so happy, friendly and unbelievably helpful at all times. There always was someone around to help me with anything on my mind. Be it directions, late breakfast/checkout or print outs - they worked it out for me. I always felt welcome. The living quality was that... More

I only stayed for 1 night because I wanted to sleep between party hostels (seriously) and I'm glad I did because it was super quiet, comfortable, clean and the breakfast was incredible (best I've ever had at a hostel). I like to meet people and be really social at hostels so I'm glad I only booked one night because this... More

This is a friendly, clean, charming place to stay. The location is terrific. The buffet breakfast is varied and plentiful. The view of the Bosphorus from the roof top terrace (where breakfast is served, and guests can meet and talk during the day or evening) is stunning. The staff are, without exception, genuine, extremely welcoming and helpful. I felt like... More

We were a group of 37 people and had the best time! The hotel staff was very nice and helpful with everything. The rooms were very nicely cleaned and breakfast was also good, especially with a nice view from the hostel. There were given good tips where we could go. Because it was the first time in Istanbul it was... 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.
