I love this place. I've been three times now, and every time has been fabulous. Very economical for the location, the rooms are impeccably clean. You won't find huge rooms here, but I only need a clean place to sleep and shower when I'm in Istanbul, so it's perfect for me. Endless hot water in the showers is a major... More

Very close to all historical places, close to many restaurants just 5minutes walk to Blue Mosque. When we arrived at the hotel the guy in the reception his name Mehmet was not very helpful he said no one can help us with our luggage. There is no parking in front of the hotel so we have to carry our luggage..... More

This hotel is located in the perfect spot for visiting the Aya Sofia and Blue Mosque etc. Other than that it is very basic. Small, clean rooms. Wi-fi throughout, but too slow to be of any real use. Our room was right next to a staff area of some sort which was very noisy especially early in the morning as... More

I stayed four days in this hotel, just in front of Blue Mosquee and near to many great sites to visit. I've been before in Istanbul and I do recommnd to stay in Sultanhamet to visit old Istanbul : Blue Mosquee, Agia Sofia, Topkapi, Basilica Citern are less that five minute walking. Tram stop at one minute walk from hotel... More

We arrived in Istanbul on 4th October, 2015 and stayed at Star Holiday Hotel for 4 nights (5th Oct - 9th Oct) and I must say what an incredible beginning to our trip. The hotel has to have the best location in the entire area. You name it and most of Istanbul's major attractions are just a few minutes walk... More

The hotel itself is perfectly adequate and worthy of average rating, but becomes very good simply for being where it is. The major sights of Istanbul are within easy walking distance, and the rest of the city is easily accessible as the tram stops outside the hotel. Also just outside is the pick-up point for Turista Sightseeing Tours, which are... 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.
