On arrival we were given a friendly welcome by the staff, rooms were very clean and decorated to a good standard. Once settled in one of the staff gave us a good overview of the local area which was very useful and cut down wasted time for us in trying to find where everything was. During our stay the staff...

He was attentitive, knowledggeable, police and helpful, we always had pre dinner drinks he always gave us our favourite table facing the sea. The hotel was close to all the attractions we wanted to view, only 5 mins walk. Some days we would visit something... More

So many things to say about this hotel. First the pictures advertised are misleading ie the room are smaller than the pictures advertised. I booked elegant room with a balcony/view, and I was not disappointed. The view is nice specially at night I love it. The bathroom is small indeed and there are about six towels and a robe. Small...

Very well located for The Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace. The staff were all very helpful and efficient particularly Ali with a fine selection of Boutique Turkish wines which we enjoyed on the balcony overlooking the Bosphorus. Rooms were comfortable rather than luxurious with free internet access which was fine for a holiday but a bit slow 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.
