This hotel is great in all aspects. Rooms are good for the price range, beds are comfortable. The terrace on the roof gives a spectacular view of the city. The location is excellent. Many major sights are nearby. A tram station is also close and will get you anywhere you wish. (Public transport is cheap. We would recommend taking the... More

For the price, it's an excellent hotel. Location is ideal as it's very close to all the tourist spots, Sultan Ahmed (Blue Mosque), Topkapi Palace, Sulimaniye ect. There is a local mosque at the bottom of the road where we would do our prayers. The view from the rooftop was amazing, especially at sunset Management is top notch, Father Berk... More

Pros: The location is fantastic. Everything you want to see in Istanbul (Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace etc.) is within walking distance. If you are also after an authentic Turkish experience, this apartment is situated on the side of Istanbul that isn't as rich as the Europe side and is sprawling with markets and eateries so you...

Stayed here for 3 nights. This is a very homely stay in Istanbul. Among the highlights are the vicinity to tram station, touristic area like Blue Mosque, grand bazar, accessibility to restaurants, cembarlitas hammam etc. We took 1 BHK for 3 people which came with a small kitchenette. The rooms were nicely furnished and sufficient for 4 people/couple with kids.... More

This in a sort of small hotel, without food service, with rooms equipped with a small kitchen. They also provide a daily room cleaning. For cooking, there are not too many tools, but maybe if you need some more they 'll help you; we did not ask anything, but the staff have been always nice. We've been in a room... More

A'la house is definitely the best option in Istanbul. The location is great, close to all the touristic attractions in Sultanahmet and with easy access to public tramway to go to any other place in the city. A lot of convenience stores and mini-markets around the hotel. The staff is helpful and welcoming, always available for anything you could need.... More

Although at the beginning we had a bit of a clash with the owner things got better quickly and I have to admit that this place has been a very nice place to stay. No frills but everything in working order and the kitchenette in the room for 3 turned out to be a great thing to have to cook... 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.
