This hotel has the charm of Ottoman style just off Hagia Sophia. You can not ask for a better location in Istanbul if tourism around Sultanhmet is your purpose. Walking distance from absoultely every major site. Staff was always helpful and breakfast buffet was great. I can only talk about room 301, but I cannot have asked for a better... More

The hotel is very old but very well kept. Our room overlooked the north side of Hagia Sophia. It was a beautiful place to stay, walking distance to the Grand Bazaar and the Spice Bazaar. The Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Basilica Cistern and many more places right close. Awesome place to visit. I was a bit nervous going to Turkey... More

This is an excellent hotel in one of the most amazing cities in the world! Its proximity to all of the main attractions in Istanbul is not the only thing that makes the Ottoman Hotel Imperial stand out (you can't get closer to the Hagia Sophia!)- staff were incredibly helpful and went the extra mile to ensure that our stay...

6 out of 5 for location. The Hagia Sophia is literally in front of the hotel. It was great to wake up with a view of this awesome 1,500 year old monumental Byzantine building . The room was very clean, spacious and 5 star hotel amenities complete with Terry robes, coffee maker, kettle, jets in the bathtub, etc. It also... More

Such a wonderful stay. The location is actually unbelievable, the rooms are really charming, and the "Turkish bath" bathrooms are a really awesome touch. The restaurant and its views are amazing, breakfast is filling and delicious, and the staff are helpful. We really loved it. It's not cheap though...

I have wanted to visit Istanbul all my life, particularly to see the magnificent Hagia Sophia. After looking for Hotels in its vicinity I found the Ottoman Imperial and immediately booked a room.

I had the worst check-out experience at this hotel. The front desk agent ignored me the entire time with a male chauvinist attitude. We hired a local tour guide and we meet him at the hotel prior to my check-out. During my check-out, I asked a question to the hotel front desk agent in English, he ignored my question and... 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.
