Hotel is located in good place, so you can easily reach Blue Mosque walking. Equipment in the hotel looked very new, stuff was ok. Highly recommend if you stay for few nights and want to explore area.

We were originally booked to stay at the Millenium Suites (situated right next door), but due to unforeseen problems at The Millenium Suites we were put up at the Senatus Hotel. The manager Ismail was fantastic and assisted us in relocating, he was always on hand to offer friendly professional advice, we could not fault the room, service, food or... More

Too often we give 5 stars to the big chains because they have everything, for them 5 stars is the minimum they should get. The Senatus has friendly, helpful staff and the room (#307) was very spacious and comfortable. It's located only 5 minutes away from the icons of Istanbul in Sultanahmet. So if it's in your price range, give... More

Location of the hotel is perfect, 5 minute walk from the Sultanahmet square where the Blue Mosque and Aya Sofia are located. It's situated on a busy street with many quaint restaurants to choose from. The restaurant opposite the hotel called Magnaura was particularly delicious, one of the best Turkish meals we ate in Istanbul. Our room was small but... More

It's a small but friendly little hotel, smack in a vibrant touristy part of the Sultanahment district and oriented to English-speaking visitors. This is a fine place to stay if you want to hit the big tourist destinations in Istanbul, and the street outside is chockablock with decent restaurants. The room was comfortable and well-maintained. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast... 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.
