We chose this place due to its location and price. The sad fact is that we nade a reservation with booking.com for 120 euro and received an email of cancellation a couple of days prior to our journey. We rebooked, didn't pay attention and ended up paying double and a half for exactly the same room. We talked to the... More

Have indeed very mixed feelings about the hotel, especially during the first day. First of all the person at the reception was doubting we paid for our stay (references to the mail from the hotel, where the receptionist confirmed they successfully processed the payment + the sms confirmation from bank about the transaction with the hotel code was not making...

We stayed in a standard room for 4 days at this hotel - we were very pleased with it! Our room was nice with a working AC and a nice and well-equipped bathroom. The bed was a bit hard, and there was some holes in the floor, but those were minor flaws compared to all the good things we experienced... More

The location was good - just couple of hundred meters from the Sultanahmed Square. The breakfast was great! Suffered a lot for the wifi - it did not work most of the time. The front desk stuff was okay. Overall, good value for money.

Wonderfully located and easy to find, only a short walking distance from The Blue Mosque. Friendly staff, good breakfast selection and great views from room 501. I highly recommend for your stay in Istanbul.

Yes, Asmali is somewhat dated and in need of renovations. Yes, there are no elevators and front stairs are somewhat challenging to navigate (rear stairwell is easier). Rooms are very clean, beds are comfortable, sheets are high quality cotton and very soft, heating works great, staff are friendly, welcoming and helpful, breakfast is included, big and varied. I highly recommend... More

I don't understand what people expected for this price?! Hotel is great! Location is perfect,staff is friendly,breakfast is tasty with turkish traditional food, very nice room,small and cosy. It's excellent for this price,more than I expected. One thing was not really good,when guy from reception said that transfer to the airport cost 6 euro not 5.

The hotel is very centrally located in the Sultanahmet district within walking distance from the Grand Bazaar, Hagia Sophia, Topcapi, tram. Each of these is about a 15 minutes walk away. There are other better situated hotels in the area but much more expensive. We only had 4 days so we only needed a comfortable bed and a clean bathroom.... More

very well located - 5 minutes from the Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosque, 15 minutes from the grand bazaar. But this is not a hotel! This is more of a B&B something you can see near Victoria station in London! They gave me a room 402, - oh, say no when they want to give you this room, I tell... 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.
