Wonderful service- our room was accidentally selected as a twin room on booking but was changed with little fuss. Beautiful breakfast- a good selection and great omelette station.  Friendly, helpful staff, particularly Talha and Sezgin. Breathtaking views on the roof terrace, overlooking the sea and 'The Blue Mosque'- what more could you ask for? Fantastic location- within walking distance to all the...

This is the hotel you want in Sultanahmet, Istanbul. I stayed here for three nights in June and am looking forward to returning soon. My double room had a comfortable queen bed, a small couch, a table and two chairs and a roomy closet. A mini-bar was available as well. The bathroom was standard European style, a bit small, but...

We are just about to check out of this hotel, and all I can say is, superb, phenomenal, awesome! We got into Istanbul at 11:30pm on Sunday night, and the hotel had arranged an airport transfer for us with someone waiting right outside baggage claim for us. Ersin checked us in. We booked with Expedia and had requested two twin... More

It is wonderful to be able to state that a hotel lived up to expectations from our research of hotels. .. the location for a first visit to Istanbul was truly exceptional with the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sopia and Alhambra Palace all within short walking distance. To be clear this is not a luxury boutique hotel .. but rather a... 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.
