It was a good looking hotel with a good atmosphere and an excellent location, clean rooms, standard toiletries but it was the reception staff that completely ruined our experience with Ilkay. When we arrived our room was ready, person at the desk gave us the standard info then waited till we paid the full amount in advance before he handed... More

Best part of this hotel is its location and it's open air bar/restaurant. It'snear all the main sights and between two tram stops so couldn't be easier to get to. The rooms are simple but clean and comfortable for one or two nights. The staff are all very friendly and all speak English. A huge thank you to the staff... More

I traveled with my wife and 4-year-old to Istanbul on July 2015. 1. The location is perfect, right in the middle of one of the main streets, with lots of shops, restaurants, stores. 2. Clean, spacious, good breakfast, restaurant on site. 3. The staff is very kind, helpful, attentive, professional. I am very grateful with Hotel Ilkay for making my... More

The room is big enough for 2 occupants; complete with the basic amenities a traveller needs. The room and CR are very clean. The food they've served had different variety, enough for a boutique hotel such as this. It is also situated pretty much in the middle of the tourist spots of Istanbul. Since we arrived early in the morning,... More

Clean, comfortable and competitively priced accommodation within walking distance of famous landmarks, atmospheric shopping districts and welcoming restaurants. The staff are helpful, friendly and relaxed; the room was well-appointed and spotless. I look forward to returning soon.

We booked this hotel based on reviews that the staff were very helpful, which we did not find during our stay. It did not seem very busy, but the staff always seemed short and rushed. They put us in a hotel room larger than we booked the first night and then we had to pay extra for that room our... More

This hotel is located in the heart of the old part of Istanbul. It is right off the tram line. The hotel seems new, the place was very clean, the staff was super friendly and they had a room to hold our luggage when we checked out. Although the tram line was right across the street I was never awoken... 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.
