Visited restaurant with party of 8 at sunset time. Rooftop restaurant has unobstructed view to the Blue mosque. I was told by my turkish friend that CNN uses their rooftop for reporting from Istanbul. Service was great. Food was nicely done prepared and decorated. Had 5 course meal and it was outstanding!

Booked the Blue House Hotel for a very last-minute trip to Istanbul - was very happy to be given a room at the front overlooking the Blue Palace. It was a little noisy in the evenings, but worth if for the easy access to the Sultanahmet area. Highly recommended

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.
