Great small hotel in the residential area beneath Sultanahmet, not more than 10 mins walk to Hippodrome. Rooms with a balcony are great and a big value with current Istanbul hotel prices. View from the breakfast terrace is great too, though there is still unfinished construction in front of the hotel. But looks like they will finish soon. Rooms are... More

This excellent hotel is located in easy walking to the main Sultanahmet attractions and yet is quiet and relaxing. The rooms are clean and lovely with excellent housekeeping. The breakfast is lovely and served on the terrace with a gorgeous view. The english speaking reservations and travel manager, Harun, provides excellent, informed and friendly service in person and via email.... More

Great, no frills hotel with a super helpful host. View from the terrace is the bomb. Room is relatively large! Very clean. Breakfast is the best of Turkish breakfast. Beats a lot of 4/5 star rated places I've stayed at.

Location is great - a short walk from the main sights in Sultanahmet (Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, Topkapi Palace, Grand Bazaar). The staff are very helpful, giving us guidance for directions. Breakfast was very good, with lots of vegetarian options. The view from the terrace is lovely! The room was very nice, with a safe, mini fridge, very good Wifi,... More

We stayed at the Saruhan Hotel for four nights. Our room had a little balcony and was facing the rear so very quiet. The rooms are soundproofed so no waking up to "the call of prayer"! - VERY quiet! Great position as only minutes away for places to eat. We organized a transfer from airport for 22€ and they were... More

Before my trip the Saruhan team also contacted me with information on the location and how to reach the hotel. The staff is very organized and professional and always answered very promptly. Helped me upfront to answer all questions via E-Mail and provided excellent Support.

Stayed in this hotel for a week with my wife and 2 year-old daughter. For the price this was a great hotel. Stayed in the family room with the patio. Loved every moment and the selection on the breakfast buffet was superb with great views of the sea and city from the terrace. Clean room and friendly service. Really access... 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.
