This was my second stay at this hotel in Sultanhamet. I returned because I had been so impressed by the staff and satisfied with my stay as a solo a few years before. While the hotel has no elevator, we accepted a room on the top floor because of its convenience to the rooftop, from which you can see the... More

I was very happy with my stay at Sultan Hill hotel and although a little bit expensive, it was nice to stay in a traditional Turkish hotel. Tucked away down a quiet side street , all major tourist attractions can be easily accessed on foot. The hotel felt cosy and welcoming . Rooms were heated in December and clean enough... More

We booked this hotel directly for 80 Euros a night and given its prime location adjacent to the Blue Mosque and not far from Hagia Sophia, we were very happy with the choice. (Hotels near prime tourist attractions in other cities can be outrageous!) It's a small hote l--almost more of a bed-and-breakfast feel and there are no elevators, so... More

Literally, next to the Blue Mosque, whcih is super convenient for waking around main attractions of Istanbul. Also, the view from the rooftop terrace is amazing, which makes this hotel worth staying. This is a kind of budget hotel, so the room was small but tidy enough and quiet if it's not prayer time. We liked there to stay.

Directly behind the Blue Mosque the location is superb. On a quiet street I would highly recommend this Hotel. On the roof there is a great view of the minarets of the Mosque in one direction and the ships at anchor in the bay in the other direction. Service was all that could be asked for.

Lovely old house converted into a small hotel in the heart of the historic district, Sultanahmet, with a stunning view of the Blue Mosque from the roof, however, woken at 4.30am every morning with the extremely loud prayer call. Staff friendly and breakfast was good with fruit, cheese, cereal, etc... They sold wine and beer, too. Transport was provided from... More

This hotel is clean and charming. Easy access to all of the "old town" sights, and train transportation. We felt that we were somewhat locals as school children use the street in front of the hotel as their pathway to school, nice to see local life right in front of you. The room we stayed in was a little small... More

I didn't stay at the hotel but I really wanted to let people know how helpful the management and staff of the hotel are. We arrived in Istanbul on May 1st and the Taksim area was entirely closed off to prevent demonstrations. We could not get to the apartment we rented so we were stuck wandering around the Sultanahmet with... More

This hotel was a very charming hotel for the value. We paid 68 euros a night with the rick steves discount. The rooms were clean and everything was fantastic. Just a few things to note for some people: - there was a super nice terrace up on the roof with the beautiful view. You can see the mosque beautifully as... 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.
