We were looking for a central accommodation option that would allow us to walk to the main sites and to avoid Istanbul's traffic. Family Istanbul provided just that. It's a basic hostel with superb service, better than in some of the luxury resorts I have stayed in before. We got a spacious room with 2 double beds and a window... More

We took a 5-bed room which turn out to be a 6-bed room, actually! Room was big and comfy although the furnishing was a bit strange. Bathroom was quite old and needs some fixing but it was more than fine for the price, which is really low, including breakfast! (But do not expect a 5* buffet, obviously) The very best... More

Cheap and very well located. Very friendly staff, kind and helpful. It was the birthday of one of us and they bring us a birthday cake. Also they always offered to us tea. The location is really good, around 5 minutes to Blue Mosque and St. Sofia.

The location of the hotel is wonderful, 5 mins walk from the Blue Mosque and main Sultanahmet square. The owner and staff are friendly and wonderful people. Breakfast is good. The rooms are clean but small. Bathrooms do not have a lock. Good for short stay

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.
