A very special place in the old part of Istanbul - Sultanahmet Square. Small hotel, former city house of a noble family, it has a special atmosphere. You can't find a better location as a start to visit the sites of old town. After a hard day sight seeing you can relax in the garden. You just have to do... More

Whenever i visit Istanbul the Sultanahmet Palace Hotel is where I stay. I have been there now three times and each time it was a pleasure. I am sure it has happened to some of you that you come back to a place you liked and it is somewhat a disappointment. Not the Sultanahmet Palace Hotel. Clean rooms, great breakfast,... More

I visit Istanbul every year on business and Sultanahmet Palace is always my hotel of choice. The hotel ... her professional staff ... the wonderful view ... The "hamam" bathrooms ... the delicious restaurant ... the lovely garden, the perfect location ... What is not to love?

We're a family of 5 from Toronto Canada, who visited Turkey in May 2014 and loved this place. The restaurant is located right in front of the Sultanahmet Mosque and there is a small Bazar just a few walking minutes away. You can also easily get to Hagia Sophia and Cisterna Basilica. The rooftop patio was amazing with views of... More

We arrived in Istanbul at the ferry docks early in the morning and walked from there through the ancient streets until we arrived at the hotel. We knew it was too early to check in (around 10 am), but hoped to be able to leave our small bags there, while we continued our walkabout. The polite & professional gentleman behind... More

The hotel is situated right beside the blue mosque and location wise is unbeatable, all the main attractions in sultanahmet are within walking distance. The hotel itself is nice, clean and quite and the view from our balcony was simply stunning. The rooms were of a good size and although the bathroom could have been slightly bigger it was not...

Nice small Hotel with flair and charme close to the places to visit (sightseeing) and easy to leave for restaurants/ shopping and nightlife. Perfect view (in case of balcony) in two directions (180°)! Good breakfast which you need to take outside (terrace!) Easy to go there, just take the tram #T1 and leave @ Station Sultanahmet. Enjoy the short walk... More
