We had booked two rooms for a three nights stay in Esans hotel. After booking via Expedia, we received a manual confirmation from the hotel the next day. Later, we were contacted via Email by the hotel and informed that the price was a mistake, we should cancel our (prepaid) reservation via Expedia and pay a "special cash price" in... More

What wonderful group that operates this 8 room hotel. Beds comfortable. View the sea of Marmara from some rooms and from the top floor where the breakfast (included) was served buffet style and eggs cooked to order. The spicy pepper dip, tampanadas, cheeses, and figs were delicious. The room spacious, clean, well maintained. I visited in the winter, so hope... More

This is beautiful hotel just down the street from Hagia sophia and Topkapi palace. It is located on quite street yet it is in walking distance to everything in the Sultanahmet area. The room was clean and was maintained well during my stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It was a good stay.

Found positive reviews on Esans across a lot of travel sites, and must say it is justified. Its location is brilliant - just down the road from the Hagya Sophia and the Topkapi palace. Rooms are comfortable, well maintained, clean and you get to choose the aroma that diffuses through it. (Hence the name i guess). Staff are very friendly... More

I had a 2 day stop in Instanbul over December. The hotel was perfectly located for sight seeing in the old city. It is about 5 minutes walk from Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace.

Very nice and friendly staff members, delicious [free] breakfast, well appointed rooms, and very close to major attractions.

Our family spent a week at Esans Hotel for our winter break trip to Istanbul. Between the excellent location, the friendly staff, and the delicious included breakfast, Esans provided us with an essentially flawless lodging experience. The hotel has about 10 rooms in it and so has a nice boutique feel to it; guests will quickly get to know the... More

We stayed at the Esans Hotel last year and made it a point to return here this December for five nights.The homey Ottoman-era decor; the pleasant, incredibly helpful staff; a large, comfortable room; and the delicious buffet breakfast, served on the enclosed rooftop terrace with a spectacular water view, all beckoned to us. And everything proved to be even better... More

The staff was absolutely wonderful and could not have been more kind or more helpful in providing me with information. The room was very comfortable, good value for the price. And the location was great in terms of access to popular tourist attractions, plenty of restaurants, etc. Thanks, Esans Hotel, for a wonderful stay!

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.
