Calling it a hotel may be misleading. It is more a backpacker accommodation with ensuite facilities only. Make no mistake, it is an amazingly affordable stay in the heart of Sultanahmet, with the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Grand Basaar, Basilica Cistern, Hippodrome etc all within 500m walk of the "hotel". The owner and his staff is present all day, 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.
