We stayed in the "Family room" with 2 bedrooms and 2 restrooms. Our family included 3 adults and 1 boy of 12 years old. This room is the best choice for a family up to 6 persons. I confirm also all good reviews concerning location and hospitality of this hotel. Highly recommended for a family accomodation.

Fast check in, and out. Small, uncomfortable design bathroom. Delicious, breakfast but very small capacity internal restaurant, (around total 10 tables) as some guests need to wait other to finish before they could start!. But all in all still within average.

The hotel is located just a few minutes walking distance from several important landmarks. Friendly and helpful staff. Good quality/price ratio. The breakfast is ok, but there is room for improvement.

Great small hotel for travelers who want to see Istanbul from inside. Located 10 min walking from the Blue Church and Agia Sofia. Good service, friendly staff and normal breakfasts. All you need to have good time in this fantastic city. Good value for money.

This turned out to be the cheapest hotel we stayed at in Istanbul and equally good as the others if not better. The staff is very kind and courteous. The rooms are larger than you'd find elsewhere in Instabul. It's right in the city centre and close to all the sight seeing you want to do.

Great location in the heart of Istanbul- walking distance to everything - less than 10minutes to the Grand bazaar etc. Staff are very friendly and helpful. As soon as we arrived they greeted us with delicious turkish tea and sat down and chatted to us about tours to book. The lady spent about an hour with us discussing the best... 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.
