Stayed here while I was in Istanbul I have to say location is the best, rooms a very clean, eat your breakfast outdoors by the sea and the staff are always there to help. If I visit Istanbul again I will rebook this hotel as the personal service you get counts

I have been in this hotel only fir one night. The location in so great especially the room with sea view. They let us free early check in. The bed was comfortable and the staff are very friendly. The bad thing was having too much mosquito.

I travelled with a large group and the hotel staff could not have been more helpful. The group check-in was very efficient, and we were all in our rooms within about 20 mins of arriving - impressive for a group of approx 40 people!! The reception staff continued to be very helpful throughout our stay and were always cheerful. The... More

Very nice and friendly staff. Excellent location if you want to be close to some of the main attractions in Istanbul. The room was very neat and clean. I really felt welcome and at home during my stay. I'll definitely come back next time in Istanbul.

The location of this hotel is amazing because it's 2 mins walk from Sultanahmet! However, the hotel itself is average, a bit pricy & does NOT allow you to have visitors in your room! So watch out for us! If you're of a younger age I'd say try a hotel in Taksim square!

We stayed here for about a week last August. The location is great for exploring Sultanahmet and for accessing the tram to get to other areas of Istanbul. They have a backdoor which you can leave and enter through (via a buzzer) that opens onto the small hill that leads you directly up to the Blue Masque and Aya Sofia.... More

My 2 brothers, my mom and I visited this good hotel in May of 2014. It is located perfectly: at the beautiful Bosporus shore, but within walking distance of the Blue Mosk, the Hagia Sofia, the Big Bazar and Topkapi Palace. Decent size, modern rooms, well equiped and with a tourist shuttle service to go just about anywhere where you... 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.
