We stayed in the Ottoman Hotel Imperial for 4 nights in July 2015, and I would definitely return there if I were to visit Istanbul again. The welcome we received from the staff was warm and we had a great talk with the gentleman from reception about how to get the most out of our stay. He gave us some... More

The Ottoman Hotel Imperial is on a quiet street that has no traffic, and yet it is just a few minutes' walk to all of the major sites in Istanbul. Upon our arrival, we had a short meeting with a staff member who gave us a map of Istanbul and marked all the major sites for us. She answered all... More

Excellent location right next to the Hagia Sofia and the Topkapi Palace, the Basilica Cisterns and the museum, a five minute walk from the Blue Mosque and within walking distance of all the historical attractions in the Sultanahmet section of the old city.

Let's face it, Istanbul can be intimidating especially for a first timer. The Hotel staff bent over backwards to make us feel welcome, safe, and at home. Everything you need is within walking distance. Historical and religious sites, shops and markets, restaurants and specialty food shops, "Taksi's" and light rail. Rooms where well appointed, breakfast was a neat experience and... More

We stayed at the Ottoman Imperial for four nights on our honeymoon and could not have been happier! The location was excellent. In the backyard (literally) of the Hagia Sofia, and within a short walk of the Blue Mosque, the Basilica Cistern, the Topkapi Palace, the Grand Bazaar. If you want to go to Beygolou, a short tram ride. The... 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.
