I was there for 3 nights and I can say that the location is great. Really close to the Blue Mosque and to Hagia Sofia. Also to the Tram that takes you to the main attractions. Even though the rooms aren't too big it provides comfort. There is no view from the room even though it seems like the building... More

It was my first visit to Istanbul and the hospitality at Magnaura Palace made me feel like I was family. They went above and beyond to make sure I had everything I needed. The room was amazing with a great view. The breakfast was fabulous and with a view. The location couldn't be more perfect.

This lovely, family-run boutique hotel was home for us for three nights. From booking to check out, everything was a pleasure. The staff could not have been more helpful, the breakfast is delicious and overlooks the strait and the positioning of the hotel means that you're neighbours with the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia. We will be back.

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.
