For your stay in Istanbul, you can do no better than the Orient Express Hotel. Friendly and tremendously helpful staff, clean comfortable rooms, and a perfect location - within walking distance to trams, ferries, and all the sites you travel to Istanbul to see. Fabulous breakfast, free Wi-Fi, and a stunning (and reasonably-priced) rooftop restaurant. Guest Relations is everything one... More

The hotel is very well located, 10 min walk from Hagia Sofia and very close to the tramway. The staff was very helpful and gave us good advice for the visits (for example one paper with the opening times of the main monuments in Istambul). The room was not big but very comfortable and clean.

I took my parents to visit Istanbul. Both in their 70's, with hip and knee problems respectively, I worried. I worried about the walking, and looked for a well-positioned hotel, close to the historical attractions. I looked for a hotel with an elevator, and friendly, helpful staff, close to public transport. I looked for a hotel with breakfast included. I... 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.
