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

Apologies for late review having stayed there in July 2014 but such a good hotel deserves a review. Met on time at the Airport by the hotels own shuttle bus. The hotel was entrancing from the first view unloading the bags, though the tranquil fountained courtyard.Our room was lovely and cool, super clean and well stocked and double glazed (very... More

Wonderful location; right in the heart of the old city. Short walk to many great restaurants, and the Hippodrome area. Walking distance to tram stop near Hagi Sophia. Rooms are great, good view of the blue mosque. Roof top dining with view of the Bosporus. Staff very helpful

Great location for touring the old town. Close to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. Nice breakfast restaurant behind the main building with a lovely view. Our room was quaint with a very small bathroom.

The location of this hotel was great. After walking around all day it felt like a nice retreat to come back to this quiet property! We had a large room and it was sparsely decorated but had a nice big window and was the parking lot outside was surprisingly quiet. You could see the sea as well which was nice.... More

This hotel is across from the Blue Mosque - so nice setting but very loud call to pray starting at 4:30 am and last one ending at 1o pm. We stayed 3 nights and on the last night our blankets were too small for our bed. We asked for some new bedding to fit our bed, but alas it could... More

This hotel's remarkable location with its beautifully kept courtyard gardens gave our guests a unique location for a family wedding ceremony. This stunning hotel in the shadow of the Blue Mosque has a unique atmosphere that is calm and transports visitors to a place of serenity amidst the bustle of Old Istanbul. Search this one out, you will not be... More

Good location in the old city within walking distance of a lot of attractions and restaurants. Excellent internet, charming staff. Tried to email the hotel prior to departure from Australia reference airport transfers and unfortunately got no reply.

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.
