I loved our stay in this hotel very much. The staff members were very well trained in customer service. The room was fantastic, very clean and very comfortable and the amenities provided were essentially enough. The breakfast & location was excellent!

Situated a three minute walk from the Blue Mosque and just across the park to the Agha Sofiya and right next to a good bazaar, this has got to be one of the best situated hotels in Istanbul. Our room with balcony on the top floor (they asked us on first checking in whether we wanted a balcony or bigger... More

Nice, quiet hotel, very clean with nice public spaces. Room was small but very clean and nicely done. Located across from a small shopping bazaar, right at the edge of the Blue Mosque and lots of site seeing and shopping. Beautiful breakfast terrace with water view. Felt very safe and well taken care of here. Good value - great location!

Definitely, the best possible location you could wish for in the old part of Istanbul's Sultanahmet area. In the proximity key of the coveted Sultanahmet Four Seasons Hotel, this unique period architecture hotel in the Ottomoan style is within walking distance of the famous Mosaic Museum, Blue Mosque and wonderful ottoman bazarr luring in visitors from all over the world...

The best thing about this hotel is its location very near the Blue Mosque. The rooms are attractive although hamam style bathrooms are a tight squeeze. They have wifi (a bit slow) tea making facilities and tv. There is a lovely terrace at the back where breakfast and drinks can be served and a pleasant courtyard at the front facing... More

Checked in after noon, but room wasn't ready. Fair enough, but Hmm #1 given that it was clear that there was no way the hotel was sold out. Staff suggested we have a tea or a cup of coffee at the terrace restaurant while they got our room ready, just as soon as possible. Ordered an ice coffee on the... More

This hotel was very comfortable to stay in, and the best thing about it is that it's located in the ideal location, close to the main sites. It also has beautiful grounds and lovely view off the outside back porch where you can watch the sunset.

This place was like an oasis in the hubbub of Istanbul. In the middle of everything, but without the noise and crowds. Breakfast is on the patio, with a beautiful view of the Bosporus. Typical Turkish breakfast with some nods to Western preferences. It's hard to improve on fresh pomegranate juice, tomatoes, cucumber, three kinds of bread, three kinds of... More

We enjoyed staying in the palace quite a lot. It was - in spite of his great spot - a quiet and almost hidden gem with few rooms and almost invisible or better reduced to the necessary service. No distortions or dozens of people running wildly around but still everything was done in a quiet and helpful way. Rooms very... 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.
