This hotel is literally in the middle of everything, few steps to the Tokapi Palace and Hagia Sophia , walking distance to Blue mosque and so many other important places. Amazing restaurants around the hotel, with different budget. The staff of this hotel is amazingly good, it makes you feel welcome every time, I was amazed with they blue mosque... More

A gem of a hotel in Istanbul. The location as you can see cannot be beat: right next to Hagia Sophia. A fantastic base for touring old Istanbul. Very nice rooms, and the turkish bath inspired bathroom is absolutely fantastic. Incredibly attentive and friendly staff set this hotel apart from the rest. Highly recommended.

This hotel is located across the street from the Hagia Sophia. The staff was incredibly attentive, the room was very nice, and the food in the restaurant was very good. I highly recommend this hotel for a fair price, and superb stay, and the location cannot be beat!

We stayed at Ottoman Hotel Imperial for 7 nights from 12-19 August. From the moment we got there I was impressed how they sent a porter to pull our luggage from the main road because the taxi couldn’t enter the road due to the barriers being up. We were given refreshments and Serhat kindly informed us on what we can... More

I stayed at this hotel several times for business purposes and I can say it is one of the top hotel in Sultanahmet area. From the room design to the service quality it is absolutely great.

This hotel is in a great location. It is within walking distance of the Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia, blue mosque and many restaurants and stores. In addition, it is within one bus stop of the Grand Bazaar and a few stops from the Bosphorous River. To be honest, I think the location is one of the best things of the... More

We are experienced and hard to please independent travellers. We were very happy with our clean and comfortable accommodation in this hotel. Staff were efficient and friendly, food was tasty, the dining area was calm morning and evening. We were especially pleased with the location, being able to walk to all the main attractions with 10 - 15 minutes. Tourist... More

The location cannot be beat, and in some cases that would cause a place like this to be average. However, the ottoman imperial is not average. The staff are all extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast is tasty. Rooms are tastefully appointed - do not expect a huge room given the location in the old city and size of the... More

As others have said, this is a beautiful little hotel - very unassuming from the outside but quite charming and elegant from within. The other place we stayed in the Sultanahmet area had views of the Blue Mosque, and the views in this place aren't nearly as great. But it makes up for it in the little touches, amenities and...

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.
