We recently stayed at this hotel after our cruise ended in Istanbul. The hotel is very conveniently located near all the old town attractions and the grand bazar. The cruise terminal is nearby and you could take the tram to the stop if you dont have a lot of luggage. The staff are very nice and helpful. The offer a... More

One could not ask for a more centrally located hotel in Istanbul. It is within walking distance of virtually everything, but what it is not within walking distance of it is only 3 blocks from the tram which should get you to most of the other spots you might want to see. We thought the staff was very friendly and... More

If you want to stay in a small, quiet hotel with all the modern amenities of a large one, this boutique hotel is ideal because it is situated within walking distance of the historical sights, restaurants and the Grand Bazaar. Above all, the staff at the hotel are extremely helpful and accomodating. They made our stay comfortable and enjoyable, and... More

There were 3 of us who stayed at Efendi hotel. We had been traveling Europe for a month and Istanbul was our last stop. The rooms were clean and we had 3 comfortable beds. The location is convenient to hit all of the popular sights!

I booked this hotel after reading all the great reviews on TA. I must say, this is the first time the reviews have failed me. I was expecting an excellent stay with superb service but was thoroughly disappointed. My biggest complaint is probably the staff. They are ABSOLUTELY NO HELP. For example, my friends and I wanted to go to... More

We stayed at efendi for two nights and the location was great to easily walk to all the major tourist spots and close to lots of restaurants, shops etc. Istanbul is easy to get around with good public transport. We found the hotel staff very helpful and friendly and our room was small but nice and the WiFi was good.... 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.
