We stayed five nights with two other families. The location is very good, the staff friendly, the rooms are small but very clean, the breakfast was ok. And we spent every evening on the terrace planning the next day. Thank you, again!

Lovely small hotel right on the doorstep of all the main must see sights of Sultanahment. The management and staff were excellent, warm and friendly. They saw to all our needs and offered excellent advice regarding the area. They also had great senses of humour and provided many a laugh, especially Salih and Mehmet. The hotel was exceptionally clean and... More

We stayed two nights and its possibly the cleanest hotel we have ever stayed in. The owner Mehmet, along with his wife and staff, set an example in how a hotel should be run. Their attention to detail is a joy to see, and all delivered with warmth and a friendly smile. The location is excellent, just a few minutes... More

this hotel should be used for staff training everywhere. amazing welcome- mehmet is an excellent host and manager. little details like free tea coffee constantly being offered, genuine conversation and interest in people. I have stayed in 100s of hotels this is the first time I felt compelled to review.

Very nice small hotel in Sultan Ahmet area. Staff is very helpful and friendly to tourists - main personnel representatives are english-speaking and they will help you with enquiries in terms of navigating around elsewhere in Istanbul. Highly recommend for groups of friends or couples. But bear in mind, room space is not big as in many world capitals.

Location of the hotel is wonderful! You may walk to all the main sightseeing locations in the Sultanakhmet district. Rooms are neat and clean. Personnel is so friendly and so helpful! Breakfast was filling. They had eggs, vegetables, salads, drinks, fruits. And for New Year they made us a small present: a bottle of wine and fruits. It was so... More

So you are wondering why no 5th star? First, let me point out the rooms are very modern and updated - you will surely be impressed (I think). We stayed in the Double room. Not a huge room, but enough space to walk around the bed comfortably. The breakfast was a surprisingly large buffet style; large compared to the bread... More

Stayed there together with my girlfriend for a couple of days in August 2013. First the bad news: The rooms are indeed small and some may nag about that there was no fresh bread for breakfast but single packed buns instead (though they're not really that bad at all). And IMHO this is easily forgotten once you take the good... 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.
