I think there is where we had lunch one afternoon...

In the neighborhood just down the hill from the Ayasofia and Topkapi Palace, there is a street with a number of little boutique hotels and terrace restaurants. We chose one of these that turned out to be connected to a Best Western hotel that looked very charming and had a balcony with an... read more

This was my first meal in Turkey - and it was a great introduction to the city. The waiter barely let us lift a finger. I wasn't exaggerating in the title - he even swept our table with a tiny golden dustpan and broom between courses! Our water glasses were never less than half full either (which was heaven after...

I wandered along this stretch of Istanbul for a few reasons. One being that I had been picked up by the van(for an afternoon cruise) that I was taking and this street was part of our route. I eventually chose this restaurant because it was 8:45 p.m. and I was getting a bit hungry. Hadn't eaten since mid afternoon on... 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.
