I went to hotel Olimpiyat twice, and the rooms was very good, clean and tidy. The service are great. It was including bed and breakfast and the breakfast was fantastic. The hotel provide taxi from airport and to airport and this is grat option. It is very close to old city and Kapalicarsi. I highly recommended.

A pleasant stay in a clean hotel (we stayed four nights in two stages). The hotel is within easy walking distance of the major attractions (bazaars, masques).The rooms are a bit on the small side but our bed was comfortable and breakfast was good albeit unchanging. We were able to leave our heavy luggage in a secure room while we... More

I've stayed at the Olimpiyat 1-2 times a summer for the past six summers, so I can attest that the hotel is a consistently good value with extremely clean and well-prepared rooms, plus very helpful and friendly staff. Sati and Erkan at reception have gone out of their way to assist me with travel and other arrangements. The neighborhood is... More

Don't be fooled by the lobby. The rooms are the size of a shoebox, walls are super thin and guests smoke in their rooms so it gets I to your room! The room next door was watching t.v all night and we couldn't sleep for our tour the next day. The people at the front desk were not helpful and... More

The Olimpiyat Hotel has a superb location. It is very close to the major mosques, Galata tower, Grand Bazar you even can ride the trolley. Rooms are a little bit small thought but the service is very good.

Istanbul being such a large city, it pays to choose a central location from which to visit the sights. If moreover you're looking for decent, comfortable, modern accommodation at 3 star prices, you'll be happy to have picked Olimpyat hotel. Prior to arrival be sure to make contact with the hotel concerning a possible airport transfer - these are aplenty... More

Great location on the Asian side of Istanbul. 10 to 15 minute walk uphill to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, and Topkapi Palace. Grand Bazaar and Spice Markets were also within easy walking distance. Staff was helpful and friendly. Breakfast was average and uneventful. Room was clean with A/C. Ask for a room on the quiet side of the hotel,... More

Our 8 person travelling party stayed at the this neat, clean and centrally located hotel. Room sizes varied from large to small for double rooms - I would recommend room 609. This is an ideal base in Istanbul's Old City as it is central to the tram line, the metro train, sights such as the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia... More

We stayed here in late May. Our rooms were very clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our balcony overlooked the restaurants and street with a little view and great spot to sip a tea and watch the city come to life each morning.

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.
