The location was perfect, close to transportation, historical sites and shops. The rooms were clean, up to date, with just the right amount of cultural flair. Great price and great service! I would definitely like to give a special thank you to Murat, the manager working when we arrived, he was extremely friendly, and made sure that we had everything... More

We stayed three nights and the breakfasts were fantastic! The rooms were clean and comfortable. The management were very helpful. The location is perfect for visits to the treasures of the old city of Istanbul. The only drawback was the crazy road night-time traffic right outside. For this I recommend taking earplugs.

Our room was nicely appointed, the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, the breakfast was good (big selection of Turkish breakfast pastries, plus scrambled eggs for Westerners), but the location was SUPERB. Short walk to all of the major historical attractions, shopping, and numerous good restaurants. I would stay there again in a heartbeat!

We stayed 2 nights at the Royal Sultan. Room and Bathroom are clean and well equipped. Breakfast spread is very good. Location is great for visiting all the historic sites in Old Istanbul. The palace etc are all walking distance. What made our stay amazing was the manager Mr. Mahmat (spelled incorrectly). He went out of his way to be... More

We were so pleased we chose the Sultan's Royal hotel for our 6-day stay in Istanbul. Located right in the old town, it is close to the major attractions but is also quiet as it is on a side street. There are plenty of restaurants and markets nearby. The staff is welcoming and helpful with directions, restaurant recommendations and even... More

We had a lovely stay at this hotel and it is very conveniently located close in the old part of town. It is very close to the Blue Mosque. The rooms were small but very comfortable. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We enjoyed breakfast every morning.

Our stay was a pleasure - we arrived really late, but were warmly welcomed! The staff is amazing and very helpful. I'd totally recommend the hotel. Plus all the sightseeing spots are pretty close, too.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for our first nigh in Istanbul t and had a great stay. Great location close to Sultanahmet square (blue mosque, Hagia Sophia...) We were upgraded when we arrived to a much nicer room than we had booked for no charge, and felt very well taken care of, we were given free drinks upon arrival... 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.
