My daughter and I went to Istanbul over Memorial Day weekend for a little getaway. We chose the Kumru Hotel based on recommendations here on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. The location is great (close to shops, easy to walk to major attractions) and the hotel owners so friendly and accommodating. The hotel itself is quite small but the... More

My wife and I stayed here one night after getting off our cruise. We got into port earlier then expected and the hotel was extremely helpful in letting us in and get settled early, they are very flexible and we appreciated it. The location is also very nice as we were able to walk to the blue mosque, the hagia... More

I love this hotel! If you are looking for a great little hotel that is in within walking distance to many of the historic sites, this will fit the bill. The lovely rooms are clean, comfortable and the beds are the most comfortable we had in our trip to Turkey. Melissa is very helpful and knowledgeable and made us feel... More

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

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.
