Stayed here for 6 nights recently, and the location is perfect. Walking distance to most local attractions. Many restaurants and cafes nearby. Staff are polite, but the older gent that is around most days is very friendly. Breakfast was fine - variety of foods to suit most - and included in your room rate. Loved the old part of Istanbul...

I had a really good stay at Celal Sultan. Hotel was very near to the major locations to visit in Sultan Ahmet, Istanbul. Nice, clean rooms, free Wifi (little patchy in room) and front desk was very co-operative. Breakfast buffet was excellent. I highly recommend anyone visiting Sultan Ahmet to use this hotel.

The hotel's location is such... More

This hotel was excellent and close to all the historic sites and many restaurants. Everything was within walking distance. The staff on the desk could have been more friendly but they were helpful when asked. We had a very good rate otherwise we would have considered it expensive

Helpful staff, not as friendly as other places though. Hotel is in a great location in the old part of the city, 1 minute from the Basillica Cistern and 5 mins to the major mosques and Topkapi palace. Nightly room and breakfast rates (if you are a drop in) are hugely overpriced but they do incredible good value deals for... 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.
