Kumru is a lovely boutique hotel situated in the old city of Sultanahmet and is a fun short walk to the main sites. We had booked two rooms and had a third booked for the following day as we were meeting up with a fellow traveller and for convenience we were all booked onto the same floor which meant one... More

The owners are very hospitable and helpful. Our room was small but clean and comfortable. There is a roof top dining area but we did not eat at the hotel during our stay. Well situated to walk to the main tourist areas as well as restaurants.

Nice family run hotel in the heart of the old town. The hosts are very nice and friendly. Lots of history around, I suggest visiting the Little Hagia Sophia mosque in the vicinity of the hotel, a real beauty which is for some reasons neglected by the mainstream tourist crowds.

My entire family loved this place. The proprietors were extremely nice and very helpful in suggesting where to go and what to do. The rooms were comfortable and clean. And the breakfast was extraordinary. My personal favorite, the freshly squeezed pomagranit juice. But I had lots of favorites for breakfast!! So I was full and happy starting every day. Istanbul...

We stayed at the Kumru Hotel for 4 nights and to choose this hotel was a very good decision! The hotel has a perfect location for doing all the sightseeing (Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi....) and the biggest plus is the really sweet staff and the owners Melissa and Abdu. You feel like at home. We liked the modern style... More

Marvelous. We stayed three nights there with comfort. Have nice clean rooms with shower and amenities. Breakfast is very nice with different types of eggs, cheese, french fries, butter, jams, cereals, salads, wow strawberries, tea, coffee and fresh juices. Now about owners, both Melissa and Abdul are extremely nice and helpful. On our first day Mr. Abdul dropped us to... More

My friends and I hit a Snafu on our trip to Instanbul and couldn't stay at the Kumru. When we walked in however, the place was beautiful, and just as the pictures showed. Despite the reservation issues, the staff made us feel right at home. They booked us into a really nice hotel, and offered us vehicle service to the... More

From the beginning, the owner, Melissa, e-mailed many times to make sure we would be very comfortable; even though we would be staying only one night. She provided us with a larger room and let us have a late check - out, since our plane was leaving at night. She met us in the evening and talked with us at... 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.
