Great and I would even say strategic location! All the greatest sites in Istanbul are within a walking reach, Duran Apart being surrounded by street restaurants of the kind you'd only find in Istanbul, not to mention the Hafiz Mustafa restaurant, 90 seconds away, which sells the tastiest sweets in the world. Ever. The staff in Duran Apart is really... More

Duran Apart has the best possible location in Istanbul. It is in the middle of Sultanahmet just a walk away from famous locations (Topkapi, Hagia Sophia, Spice Bazaar, Grand Bazaar etc.). There is also a lot of restaurants where to eat kebab, turkish shops and places nearby like hamam. The Hotel is small and cosy with Turkish atmosphere. Our room... More

Hotel has a very nice owner, who made our stay in Istanbul better. Mr. Ahmet really takes good care of his guests. Hotel is clean and appartments are big enough. Each room has two beds, one has a doubke bed and another two single beds. In that room there is a small kitchen but since you can get good and... More

Few minute walk from Aya Sophia, Blue mosque, Topkapi palace, ferries to the Asian side, spice market, Grand Bazar.....Restaurants in small streets around the apartments are good and cheap. Rooms are clean and big enough. The owner is great. Very kind and always ready to help you.

When i first turned up at the Duran Apartments I was unsure what I had booked, but I had heard good reviews. Amit, the owner, had a surprisingly good room waiting for myself and my business partner. We slept very well and enjoyed the free internet and great location. There are fantastic little streets all around the Apartments and great... 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.
