The hotel is small and located in a easy walking distance of all sites in the city. The staff were welcoming and always ready to give advice. Slightly away from some of the main tourist streets the local restaurants were better value for money and less packed. Breakfast on the roof terrace was enjoyed by the whole family and when... More

Wonderful hotel. Great location with easy access to all points in the Old City. I was upgraded to a beautiful suite with a gorgeous view under the eaves (and popular with very noisy seagulls), but even the regular room was charming. Best of all was the staff - friendly, accommodating, personable, never cloying. Every request was carried out immediately, and... More

Helpful and welcoming staff. Unassuming entrance and lobby couldn't have prepared us for the most awesome views form our room! Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque looked as if they were paintings hung on our walls but were actually the real things we saw from our windows. The rooftop balcony/patio provided a 180 degree view of the city, Golden Horn and... More

I stayed here for two nights in June with my wife and I must say that this is a wonderful hotel. The hotel arranged a private transfer from the airport for us, which cost 40 euros for two people (in hindsight you can get cheaper online). We were greeted by the friendly staff and given information on the hotel as... More

The hotel itself is great, no complaints there. Staff is great, it's a small hotel, big breakfast buffet (Turkish style), great roof deck, comfy beds (hard, but good), Air Con, quiet, close to all the big sites. If you're 30 and under (and maybe slightly over) and what a happier-younger vibe to your neighborhood. Stay across the bridge near Galata... More

Breakfast on terrace with incredible views. Very convenient to most tourist attractions but is on a quiet side street itself. Comfortable and clean accomodations. Friendly, helpful staff with good recommendations for restaurants. We would happily stay again.

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.
