I stayed at Antique Hostel for five nights, check in was a breeze, the reception were friendly and helpful throughout my stay. The rooms are small but cover all the basics, while being clean and tidy. It is an ideal location so there is no need to be looking for more than what is offered as majority of my time... More

I have been coming here since the Winter of 2009. The hospitality, accommodations, and service has always been that of the highest level of quality and professionalism. For me personal attention to suit my specific needs will always trump the high prices of fancy elite modern living conditions. The prices here are very affordable and include a healthy delicious filling... More

I can not understand some reviews which goes smt like this: small room, small toilette, etc,etc, and than 4 stars given. This leads me to believe that some of those reviews are written from the hotel stuff themselves, which led me to book this hotel. My experince was totally opposite. I was there few days and could notice that no... More

We stayed at Hotel Antique for 4 days, 3 nights. First time in Istanbul. Antique is brilliantly located - very short distance to all the key Istanbul attractions. Enis - the host and owner - is simply outstanding. Gracious, informative and a pleasure to know. The rooms are small, but the rates are cheap, breakfast is supplied and the ambiance... More

I can second what most other reviewers have stated. Hotel Antique is very near the sights of the Sultanahmet area of Istanbul yet is tucked away on a quiet side street. The room I had was a double with two twin beds though I was alone as a single. The self contained room, and it’s bathroom, are tiny yet they... More

Disclaimer: I'd like to give this property 3.5 stars, but TripAdvisor won't let me. First of all, the service at this hotel is great. Everybody is really helpful and accommodating. My fiancé and I had to be out of the hotel by about 5:00 a.m. to catch a 7:25 international flight and they were fussing over how they would be... 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.
