We're a young couple and stayed in this hotel for 5 days. The position is very strategic becouse it's very close to blue mosque and to tram/metro line. Abdurrohman and all other staff members are really nice and helpfull. They do everything to give you a hand and , if you want, they book the excursion for you. I hardly... More

Sitting by the swing and having coffee. My room had all facilities I could imagine and was very quiet and cosy with free Wifi in the room. The... More

Freeman hotel is an average hotel, room and breakfast disappointed us. The person on the reception Mr Abdul Rehman was very cooperative and helpful- The main attraction for staying hotel is it close proximity with Blue mosque and Hagi Sofia

It is a good hotel to stay with friends or family. The standard rooms is not to big, but was enough for me, my wife and our 9 years old son. The hotel rooms are clean, but bathrooms need some repair and upgrade. Breakfasts were same every day. The staff is good and friendly. Walk to the Blue Mosque and... More

Staff was very friendly and helpful especially as we arrived late. Location very central and rooftop restaurant had nice views. We had 2 triple rooms. Old decor but one room was very spacious and the other on the top floor (same floor as the restaurant) was very small. It was more suitable to accommodate just 2 guests rather than 3.... More

We have just enjoyed a wonderful time at this hotel. The rooms are clean and comfortable - the location is superb - right at the Blue Mosque in Sultanahmet! The staff are exceptional - they couldn't be more friendly or helpful - from the moment we arrived until our departure. Breakfast by Mahmut a special treat not to be missed!!

fantastic location with walking distance to the blue mosque and hagia sophia. even the grand bazaar is a walking distance albeit 15-20 brisk walk. staff are friendly and helpful. love the area for breakfast on the top most floor, overlooking the murmur sea and the rooftops of the surrounding buildings. room was slightly old, but that didn't spoil our trip.

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.
