Very nice hotel at a great location. Four blocks from the Blue Mosque and Haghia Sofia. The room was very clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Close to many restaurants. Would definitely stay there again.

We stayed in the upper floor suite. Big enough, but everything was worn & not clean. Mold in the shower. Noise from chairs being moved in the breakfast room directly above. The foods served were stale. ( Yesterday's simit rolls that hadn't sold.) We emailed asking for an airport pickup, confirmed the pickup the week before & arrived to find... More

First the positives. The Romantic Hotel has a great location just a few blocks from Sultanahmet Park, the Blue Mosque, and Hagia Sophia. Plus the view of the Blue Mosque and the Sea of Marmara from the rooftop breakfast patio are excellent. However, these pluses did not do enough to offset the negatives for me to recommend this hotel.

We only stayed a couple nights in May for flight transfers but found it a very nice place to stay, Easy to get to via public transportation from the Ataturk Airport, although it takes about 90 minutes. The hotel is located in a area full of restaraunts and shops catering to tourists and a 5 minute walk from the Blue... More

The room was very clean; I got the family room and was perfectly OK. The breakfast in the terrace was very good with a very nice view. People were very friendly and ready to help. The Hotel is very centrally located.

We were routed by our pre-booked hotel as it was full. We found this one to be better. It is located walking distance from blue mosque. The place has pink colour theme, may be to go with the name. Rooms are nice, staff very courteous with helpful advice, break fast spread was not so elaborate but decent. The only thing... More

This place is adorable. It's super gaudy, bright colors everywhere, Victorian style beds, but I think that adds to the charm. The location is ideal. We had a very short time in Istanbul and were able to walk to the Grand Bazaar (10 min walk), Blue Mosque (5 min walk), Hagia Sophia (5 min walk) and the Cistern (10 min... 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.
