Great base from which to explore Istanbul and the breakfast is fantastic! The view from the roof is great and the rooms are small, but ample for a city stay. The staff was friendly and helpful, however we often got conflicting information from different staff. I think some of it was due to language barriers, but the circumstances of our... More

The room was also very clean. The staff was great, so friendly and helpful! Melissa,in particular, was so friendly and helpful in making our... More

Excellent location of this hotel. Walking distance to all major attractions and also to tram which connects with Galata area. Front of house staff were always accommodating. Breakfast was the best we had experienced during our holiday break. Fresh, varied and the view across to Haga Sophia while amazing. I would highly recommend this hotel.

We booked a family suite and it was clean and modern with good shades (perfect for jetlag), the staff are great and really helpful and the breakfast on the top floor with a view of the Blue Mosque is a great way to start your day.

Nice location, near the big tourist attractions like Haya Sofia and the Blue Mosque. I stayed in room 205, and about my experiente: The lobby floor is on the third floor so the room is underground and has no view (I wish they could have told me something about it during the reservation process at Hotels.com) The room is big...

The Efendi hotel is located very centrally close to all tourist attractions. It is in a safe and quite side street. The hotel is such is functionally furnished, rooms are rather small. The breakfast room is on the roof top with a nice view. Good breakfast, with an extra deligth that changes every day.

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.
