Arrived at night to a warm welcome and woke up in the morning to a bit of a shock by its surroundings. NEVER THE LESS, don't let this cloud your judgement, The Golden Crown is perfectly situated for the main sights, and the tram line, all of which are less than 5 minutes away on foot. Rooms are small but... More

Felt disappointed when we first saw it but it was in a great location just 5 minutes walk from the Blue Mosque, Agia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Basillica Cistern etc, It is also convenient for the tram line. Breakfasts were good, and the staff were very helpful, especially Kurban! Very clean too. Only thing you should be aware of is construction... More

We had booked 4 nights at this hotel which is wonderfully situated for the main sights and near the tram. We were surprised when we arrived at 11.30 pm on a delayed flight to be told by a very embarrassed clerk that the rooms we'd booked weren't available so we had to go to another lesser hotel 300 yards away...

I was staying in this Hotel last week. I am really excited about location of this Hotel, you just need 5 minutes to get to Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern, Hippodrome and etc. It's very close to Cemberlitas station as well, I never thought that it was so easy to get from airport to Hotel. Taxis are very expensive... More

We have just returned from a week in Istanbul, staying at the Golden Crown Hotel. It's in a great location - a 5 minute walk to Sultanahmet Mosque, Aya Sofia, the Grand Bazaar and the Basilica Cistern. The room was kept spotlessly clean by a friendly maid and had a good sized bathroom with a good shower. Breakfast was typically... More

We were fine in the Golden Crown but it is pretty tired. The location off of Sultanamet Sqaure is great but there are other hotels on the same street of Piyerloti that appear much better maintained than the Golden Crown. There really weren't full sheets on the beds. Just a coverlet that felt like you were sleeping under a tea... 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.
