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

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.

Located in the old city, this hotel is an easy walk to all the major sites and is surrounded by cafes, shops and restaurants. Our room was clean and comfortable, and the hotel has plenty of character and charm. The staff were friendly and helpful and an excellent breakfast buffet was served each morning. Highly recommended.

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.
