Great little spot in old town, a roof top breakfast served fresh by local women, heated towel rack and a great shower. The rooms are mostly taken up by beds, but were adequate as one wants to explore not sit in the room. Friendly desk staff. I highly recommended!

We loved our stay at this hotel. First, the location is perfect - 3 min walk from Sultan Ahmed square and Hagia Sophia. The roof terrace has an amazing view on the Bosporus. The breakfast was very good. My second visit to this hotel and I'll go there again. Thanks for everthing. :)

Very nice and clean room. Friendly and helpful staff. The view from the roof terrace was amazing. I took one point off because the sound proof is not very good, light sleeper might need to be aware of this.

We stayed here for our honeymoon (5 nights), taking a double room with a little seating area. The staff could not have been more helpful - both in the reception and breakfast room. There is the oriental (dis)advantage of a charming mosque and minaret right beside the hotel, which means an early morning call to prayer (6.22h when we were... More

So I had hoped to like this hotel, since I was here for five days, but here are some issues: 1. Crappy wifi on the upper floors. If you're in the lower floors, it's nice. But they have a booster at the top floor that doesn't really work but they don't seem to care. 2. They NEED thicker shades. Our... More

The hotel is minutes from the blue mosque and other attractions and the area has plenty of restaurants. The hotel itself is at the end of the strip so is quiet . It has a lovely roof terrace where breakfast is served and although they don't serve alcoholic drinks we could take our own drinks up to the roof terrace... More

We liked the hotel. It was certainly close to the Sultan Ahmet Mosque, Aya Sofya, Topkapi Palace and more. It was a bit farther from the Grand Bazaar but still an easy walk. However, the neighborhood behind the Blue Mosque was so touristy. It was filled with hotels and restaurants and the latter places were always trying to entice you... 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.
