I have been there 4 nights this week, I had booked with ebookers and managed a great deal. It is well located, just behind the Blue Mosque, in the centre of the Sultanahmet historic district. I enjoyed walking from here to every famous city highlights. The hotel is not worth the 4 stars mentioned. The room I had booked was... More

Excellent location near food and shops. About 200m away from blue mosque and hippodrome. Another 100m walk to cistern and hagia sofia. Then another 200m walk to topkapi. Perfect location for the price. Breakfast was basic but adequate. Family room had 2 double beds with divider in between. Can't complain much..

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.
