The rooms are clean and new, location is perfect next to all major attractions and a 10 minute walk from Sultanahmet tram station. Breakfast is good, and the staff were very helpful. I'd stay there again when I go back to Istanbul.

Brilliant location less than 5 minutes walk to the Blue Mosque. There's a little general store and a cafe a couple of doors away and also lots of shops and restaurants on the street. The Arasta Bazaar is only a couple of minutes walk around the corner on the way to the Blue Mosque. The rooms were smart and clean... More

We were made to feel very welcome, nothing was too much trouble. Situated in the perfect location for sightseeing the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia and Topkapi Palace which were all just a short walk away. The room had comfortable twin beds and efficient air conditioning. It was also very quiet with a double door to our room. As 2 ladies... More

Very close to many of Istanbul's landmarks in Sultanahmet, the hotel is located in a pretty street just 1 minute away from the Blue Mosque. Clean but small rooms and friendly staff. Generous breakfast with average quality produce. We had requested a room with a view on the street, still got a room 10 centimeters away from a wall! Would... More

For the price, the hotel is clean, quiet and in a great location. The guys who work behind the desk are very friendly and will happily facilitate day trips for you if you like. The rooms are on the small side (we stayed in 101) but well worth the price and convenience of all on your door step.

We had a lovely stay here, the room was very clean with everything that you need and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. As it was our first time in Istanbul we wanted to be close to the main sights and the location of the hotel in a quiet street in Sultanahmet was perfect. We were a few minutes... More

We enjoyed our stay here. We arranged a transfer for €30 through the hotel as our flight arrived quite late at night. It took a bit to find the person doing the transfers but keep looking for your name and you will eventually spot. We had a whole mini bus to ourselves and it took us straight to our hotel.... More

This hotel is situated perfectly in old town Sulthamet. The staff were very responsive by email before arrival and arranged our pickup at the airport. The hotel is near all the big sites and a major tram stop. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. The hotel puts out a great breakfast each morning and I highly recommend their patio...

We stayed for three nights. Room was clean. Location is perfect. You have in a walking distance a lot of attractions in the center old city. Stuff in a hotel were kindly and always on standby to help us and suggest us for some place or restaurant. Breakfast was excellent.

Great little hotel, nicely furnished rooms, good en suite, nice breakfast and FABULOUS location, very close to the Blue Mosque. Perfect location for sight-seeing in the old town, but also not far from the tram for getting to Taksim.

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.
