It's really hard to find such spacy room in Sultanahmet area at this price. Wifi, fridge and aircondition included. We got what we asked for. There was an electricity blackout when we arrived and we were told that it wasnt hotel's fault but general problem in the area of Sultanahmet. A few minutes later that we went around we realised...

We booked this place based on the Trip Advisor reviews and the photos on Expedia. When we got there we couldn't find the place - eventually we discovered that the "hotel" is actually just an ordinary house. It's been divided into 4 or 5 apartments, accessed via a very steep spiral staircase, on which the lights weren't working - we... More

Normally aparts are ordinary houses,they are not hotels,that is the reason they are called aparts. As you mention the stairs are not dark, I dont understand the total darkness,it's not true. About bedlinen : I dont know what kind of hotels you... More

We spent 8 nights in the third floor apartment in September 2012. All the arrangements went according to plan (airport pickup at 06.00, the concierge ready to accept us that early). We had booked the apartment with a balcony but were given the one below without...no matter, it was pretty hot so we were pleased to have a slightly larger... More

The apartment was well-furnished and spacious, it was also very close to the tourist attractions in the old town. Check-in during the middle of the night was possible. Unfortunately, hygiene was not acceptable. Lots of hair could be seen everywhere on the floor, no matter it's in the living room, open kitchen, bathroom or bedroom. The inside compartments of the...

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.
