We enjoyed a warm welcome . Assistance with luggage to our room was great. Our room had a bit of a view of Bhosphorous. Since we were celebrating our wedding anniversary, the room had a romantic set-up. The room was very comfortable. The wine and turkish delights were a real treat.

Very helpful and welcoming staff. Helped us with our luggage and organized transfer to the airport for 6 euros. Felt safe. Close to everything. Restaurant upstairs is fantastic. Made breakfast to go as we were leaving early.

Nothing was too much trouble, The hotel is in an excellent location and we could walk to most of the major tourist sites. The hotel is spotlessly clean and breakfast is adequate.

Stayed for 3 nights and it was a prefect place to explore Istanbul. Rooms are tiny with very basic amenities but the service of front desk made up for this. The roof top restaurant was a great relaxing spot for a beer after an exhausting day. Would stay again

Staff were really friendly, no question asked when we requested to be moved to another room due to the tram and street noise. Breakfast was really good, food was replenished and warm. Room although small was clean and housekeeping was done before we came back from our walks every morning.

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.
