Dirty sheets and super old building and furniture were the first thing that welcomed us. The sheets were dirty two times and were changed for other ones as dirty as the old ones. The room was super old and very small. We upgraded to a see view thinking it could be better, but it's not. The see view is very... More

This hotel was nice for the price. It has a lovely classic feel and the staff was nice. We had a triple room that was adequate, but a little small. The breakfast was included and delicious. There was wifi in the room, but it was spotty. Close to the trolley line, the Blue Mosque, and other Sultanahmet attractions. We were... More

We have rented a room for a few days based on reviews we had read, but were very disappointed overall. The first night, our room was not available so they asked us to stay at a hotel they own next door. Then we had to move the next day. They said our luggage was going to be tranferred to the... More

Art city hotel has a great location and the rooms are clean. They vary in size and so do the bathrooms. The breakfast is good but otherwise the hotel is nothing special. The hotel did not respond to any emails or calls so we were not met at the airport as promised online.

Location is 5-7 minutes from Ajay Sofia-Sultan Ahmed mosque. Very friendly personal, clean rooms and new towels every day. Very nice view from the top terrace on the Bosporus. The best is to walk upstairs instead of taking the elevator after the breakfast which is so good you do not need to take a lunch. Free WiFi.

I got to the hotel hours after the standard checkin time and for some reason not clearly explained to me my room wasn't... More

I was not very impressed with this hotel because it would sometimes take a few days to get laundry done, we needed to ask 2 or 3 times to get an iron, luggage transported upstairs, and some extra pillows. Room service was not there daily, but they tried their best to do the job. The floor was very dusty and... More

We had a very nice week at the Art City Hotel, and would gladly go back the next time we are in Istanbul. Very friendly and helpful staff, super breakfast, great view from the room and the roof, and perfect value for the money.

I recently spent 4 nights at the Art City. We'll start with the positive: nice people. Now the negatives. The Art City is actually two hotels, the Art City and the Tulip House, recently combined under one owner and some walls knocked out to make a single hotel. The result is that everything is either up or down a few... More

Just had 4 nights here. Arrived very late and had a warm welcome. Staff polite and feel sure would have been helpful if needed. Our room had a sea view but we were unable to open the doors as they had been screwed in a couple of places which was odd. As one afternoon we needed to rest, it would... 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.
