Excellent hotel right by the main square in front of the Blue Mosque. Good value rooms, including family-size ones. The cafe/restaurant/bar is also good. Mr Onur on the front desk is very helpful. There are plenty of shops etc in the neighbourhood, plus a short walk to the tramline.

Excellent Location and very great value for money. The staff are very helpful and honest. Great views of the Blue Mosque from the bedroom, and within a minutes walk to the entrance. Easy to get to other places, due to its central location. Breakfast could be better, but then again for the price you cant complain much.

I really liked my experience at this hotel, so I considered that I had to share it. I travelled from London to Istanbul last year to cover some meetings at work. I decided to stay in a good area to explore a bit when I had free time. The hotel Spectra looked that it was perfect for my budget and... More

We stayed at Hotel Spectra last July when visiting Istanbul as a family. The family room on the upper floor was spacious, clean and comfortable with large double beds to accommodate 2 adults and 2 teenage children. Hotel is within walking distance of major sights in old city and plenty of restaurants. Visit Ortlakar restaurant just up the street for... More

The good thing about this delightful little hotel is how close it is to blue mosque and square and how inexpensive it is. On our month long travels through many countries this was definitely the best value for money. Simple but easy to navigate - very friendly hotel staff and blue mosque view from top floor. I liked the convenience... More

The location was great. Near to places of interest, restaurants n tram station. The hotel was clean n a decent size room. The staff were friendly and helpful especially Honor. The view from the rooftop terrace where bfast was served was breathtaking . You get a view of the Blue Mosque, and watching seagulls perching on the rooftops.

We did not stay at the hotel, but upon the recommendation of the staff at our hotel we ate at Spectra's restaurant twice during our recent stay in Istanbul. The food and presentation were great, I especially loved the fresh lemonade with mint and the chicken kabob.

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.
