We stayed here during a trip last May. The location is very convenient to the Sultanahmet area of the Old City. It is just below the Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia, and the Hippodrome. The half mile walk can either be straight up hill or through the Cavalry marketplace and then up a stairway. The immediate neighborhood has several good restaurants... More

As a family of 4, with 2 grown daughters, the family room was perfect. The staff were very helpful, friendly and very knowledgable. They had great recommendations for guides, restaurants, etc. Breakfast was great. Would definitely stay here again!

My husband and I spent four nights here in May 2015. It's in a convenient location in the Sultanahmet section of the city. Many of the major cultural sites are within an easy walking distance. We purchased the Istanbul at Leisure package which included airport transportation, a Bosphorus tour, and dinner at a fish restaurant (which was excellent). The breakfast... More

Service is very good, room is large and comfortable. My only complaint is that breakfast was average at best. However, this hotel was a good choice, clean and located within all major attractions in Istanbul. Staff were helpful and well informed.

I booked one night in this hotel recently while transiting through Istanbul, based on the location and strength of other reviews. I was impressed! This is a small hotel and while the rooms are on the small side and the furniture is functional rather than stylish, this is more than made up by the hotel's many positive features: comfortable bed,...

Very attentive staff made our stay very pleasant starting from the welcome and throughout. Good breakfast included. Room very clean and comfortable. The mall patio off our room was welcome particularly in the late afternoon.

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.
