This cozy hotel is a great combination of perfect location and good accommodations. If you're looking to get a great deal, than this hotel works very well. It's literally 5 minutes away from everything interesting in the old city! We'll be definitely bookmarking this one for future trips.

Reasonable price, LOCATION is THE BEST! Close to everywhere around Sultanahmet. Walk to everywhere, tram is near, restaurant is everywhere all you can access by foot. Free breakfast and they served good breakfast. Love it!

Location - Perfect. Located just around the corner from Hagia Sophia and Basilica Cisterns. Blue Mosque is a 5 minute walk. From the rooftop restaurant you have a great view of Hagia Sophia Staff - Very friendly. They kept the key for us each time we were out and remembered us each time we returned without even asking the room... More

If you want to stay in the old city with all the tourist highlights within walking distance, Celal is a very good midsize hotel with reasonable prices. Friendly service. We had to leave for the airport quite early in the morning and almost two hours before breakfast time. But no worries, the staff prepared the breakfast buffet at 05:45 instead!

Right in the heart of Sultanahmet (old city). Very easy to access the highlights, restaurants and tram. The open buffet breakfast was plenty was also nice. The room was so clean and the staff was very helpful. Highly recommended...

So many restaurants close by . And the tram is right there too. Excellent breakfast with lots of choices. Comfortable bed, but room was... More
