We spent a short amount of time in this hotel but we loved every second of it and are excited to book another stay! The staff provided fantastic service especially Onur! It is a beautiful place to stay as the rooms are very well furnished. The location is brilliant as you are surrounded by mosques, museums, restaurants and shops! Would... More

Stayed there for 6 days. It was very good experience. Very cooperative staff. Specially Mr. Onur at the reception desk who helped us for booking our trips to different city attractions. Hotel is not spacious rooms are also not very big but end of the day you get what you pay :)

When they advertise that they are located close to the blue mosque etc they weren't joking... Everything is in walking distance and you do not have to walk up hill like in some other hotels. We got to see so much of Istanbul in such a short time... Selection of this hotel made it possible. Breakfast is very good... And... More

Lovely refurbished rooms however we got off to a bad start. I booked a twin room and requested two beds and emailed the week before travelling to remind them about this however when we checked in we were told there was only a double available for our first night! As it turns out they actually had a family room available... More

Very close to the Blue Mosque etc everything within easy walking distance - but this is topped by the clean rooms, wonderful helpful staff and the very very good restaurant. I visited during Ramadan and the vibe of people and the street life made this a memorable vacation. I was a woman travelling on my own - I felt safe... More

Spent 4 nights here in April 2015. Booked 2 rooms. Kazim and Onur extremely helpful. I am quite large so found the bathroom a bit restrictive - no problem for Kazim and Onur who arranged for us to move to a larger room. I cannot thank them enough for all their assistance - especially Kazim. We were travelling with 2... More

I had a great time in this hotel. The location is perfect just in the center of turistic istmbul, 2 treets from blue mosq and agyasofia. Great breakfast. 15 minuts walk to gran bazar and 4 blocks to metro line (tranvia)

Just arrived back home in the U.S. after a five day stay at this adorable and equally amazing hotel in Istanbul, right across from the Sultanahmet. The location does not get any better and the rooms are so clean and comfortable. Staff is super friendly and helpful. Big thanks to Onur for making our stay so wonderful. Would highly recommend...

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.
