We went for a cheaper room and asked for a quiet room. It was a twin room which was big enough for a city break and had good mod cons. It had a view of a tiny courtyard at the back (i.e. no view!) which was fine for us as we only really slept in the room. The transport links... More

This small family run hotel is perfectly located in the old city of Istanbul. It is 10 to 15 minutes walk to all the famous locations in the old city, Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia, Sultanahmet Square, the Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar, Spice Markets, Galata Bridge, etc. Our room overlooked the 'Orient Express" railway station and we had views of the...

Warmly received at reception. Very clean and nicely decorated rooms. Full en suite. Aircon and satellite TV. Free Wi-Fi, Excellent buffet breakfast. Very friendly and helpful staff. Close to Bigbus tours, (Hop on, Hop off). Suggest using public transport to get there as sat-nav. loses signal because of tall buildings.

Excellent location; close to the old town, ferry, Galata bridge, trams, etc. Clean rooms in good condition. Friendly and helpful staff. We had a Bosphorus View room and really enjoyed coming back to the hotel and looking out over the Bosphorus after a good day's sightseeing.

Stayed here for four nights on sixth floor overlooking the water, picturesque. Very clean and comfortable, very friendly and helpful staff. A tram stop is just around the corner which is very handy, the hotel is within walking distance of many attractions and great places to eat. Would definitely a stay here.

A small hotel in a fantastic location, close to tourist attractions and the tram station. The staff and service were excellent; recommendations of great restaurants in the vicinity. My mom's birthday was made extra special with a very tasty birthday cake and gift from the hotel. Breakfasts really good and the lady responsible for these is very sweet and cannot... More

The Elanaz is a beautifully designed boutique hotel in a central part of Istanbul. I have never been to a hotel with such a wonderful staff, always willing to help in any way. The rooms are small, but very well designed. It's a half block to the tram line, but we never heard it, and the tram was great for... More

The Elanaz is in a good location. It is away from too much hub hub yet within walking distance of ferries and the Aya Sofia. The tram is just along the road so easy to access most areas of Istanbul. All the staff were very efficient from checking in to departure 5 days later.Breakfast was great even though the breakfast... 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.
