The staff at the Senatus couldn't have been nicer. And the accommodations were beyond our expectations! Perfect place to be in the central part of Sultanahmet. The room was spacious as well as modern. Transfers to and from airport were a great help. But most important was the helpful staff. Steve & Gwen

My wife and I spent several days in Istanbul and loved our stay at Senatus Hotel! We were welcomed most warmly and the staff were extremely helpful with all of our questions. Furthermore, the location is ideally located near the Blue Mosque and all the surrounding sites. I would definitely recommend this location to friends and family. Thanks Senatus!

My husband enjoyed our 4 nights at the Senatus. The rooms were modern, comfortable and clean. Ambience of the street and location was fantastic with lots of eating places and shops around. We could walk to the main tourist attractions. The staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend this hotel and stay there again ourselves.

We arrived on a Tuesday evening, the 3rd week of September, right before the start of the Feast of the Sacrifice. Not a good time to visit if you are a tourist with a tight schedule and hoping to see the major sites in 3 days! The staff informed us that the Bazaars would be closed Thursday and Friday, as...

This is a great hotel. The location is in the center of the historic district of Istanbul, surrounded by restaurants and walking distance to most of the sights. The rooms were clean, comfortable and large. The breakfasts very good and the staff was always there to help. I would highly recommend this hotel.

This boutique style hotel is a very short walk from the plaza which houses the Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosque. The room was very light and roomy, with a powerful shower unit. A Turkish buffet breakfast was included. The calligraphy above the bed, was a nice touch, and a note by the bedside explained its meaning. They had little cards... More

Stayed here for 5 nights in late Sept. Aside from the location, the key strengths as many mention is their location to key sites, clean rooms, friendly staff and generally the main area of Sultanhamet where you tend to find tourists which means there is always activity and people around late into the night What really stood out for us...

A group of four of us stayed here, and we all loved it. The rooms are clean and fairly updated, with stone bathrooms and a shower that even 6' 5'' guys fit under easily. The breakfast everyday is killer, with lots of options and amazing coffee. Bonus, this is the only hotel on the street that doesn't believe in having... 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.
