Visited with the husband and 3 kids during half term. Firstly the location was superb, walking distance from most the main sights. Also the hotel was very clean and the staff were super helpful. They really went out if their way to assist us with our many queries. Breakfast was basic but sufficient and the restaurant was nice and clean.... More

Central location ,very closed to Sultanahmet Square;but if you are looking for a comfortable place where the staff is expected to be professional this is not the right choice!Noisy rooms,shower water unhygienic ,unhelpful and rude staff...It is not worth the hassle since there are so many boutique hotels in the area!Very disappointed !

We enjoyed the location of this hotel, the room was more than adequate for the price range, and comfortable. Breakfast was very good, lots of options, from Turkish food to fresh fruit, eggs, etc. The staff are very attentive, helpful and friendly.

At Ataturk Airport, buy an Istanbulkart TL20 which gives you TL12.50 free travel. Take the M1a train to Zeytinburnu, then a T1 tram to Sultanahmet. Cost about TL4 instead of a very expensive TL60 taxi. It's then a very easy 5-10mins walk to the hotel from the tram stop. This is an excellent 4 stars hotel. Located just around the... More

We stayed at the Byzantium for three nights. Each night the street noise & loud bar down the road kept us up till 2 am. And if it was not that, it was hearing the baby cry next door through the paper thin walls. Apart from that, the hotel is situated close to all the main Sultanahmet tourist attractions, has... More

Reserved a double occupancy room. When we arrived, we were given a single occupancy room. The unapologetic staff did not rectify the issue. Service was totally rude. They tried to charge us for an extra key to the room when we requested an additional one.

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.
