I will have no complaints about the hotel since the location is very good, walking distance to the sightseeing places in the Old town. Probably there are rooms with the good view, but we have chosen the budget rooms, they were ok (no any view), but the curtains are of the most depressing colors (dirty brown), so the small room...

My experience with this hotel is that the hotel staffs are extremely rude. We always avoid asking them even for a simple thing as very unhelpful and very stressful to talk to them. The room is very small, Air condition was not working and the bed is old and uncomfortable. No privacy as housekeeping enters room without knocking the door...

We enjoyed our stay here. After a mixup with the booking. Initially the room was book via booking.com but was cancelled by the hotel 2 weeks prior to our visit. After contacting the hotel direct, they gave me a better room rate offer with a sea view. Breakfast was good. And the roof top deck is a pleasant place to...

This hotel is very well-located for exploring: 10/15 mins' walk to Aya Sofia, Blue Mosque & Topkapi; also 10/15 mins' walk to tram stop for airport; lots of restaurants, shops & cafes nearby. Rooftop bar with STUNNING views of Aya Sofia & Blue Mosque - great for light lunch or a drink after dinner. Only downside was our room overlooked...

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 !

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.
