Ask for street facing room - so that you can look down on life happening below you - a restaurant with music below makes you feel part of İstanbul. Very close to Aya Sofya and Blue mosque - so close it feels like the Imam is... More

I stayed here only one night. Although one night, the staff soooo kind to me, I could get some kindness more than the room charge I paid. If I could come Istanbul again, I'll stay here again! Suffice it to say that, stairs are narrow. I past someone on stairs difficultly.

Very polite staff, cool rooms and oh, the view from the terrace: you can see the Blue Mosque on one side and the Marmaray sea on the other. The hostel also provides food services... More

Really nice and pleasant stay at Nobel! The location was beyond amazing! I've been to Istanbul a number of times and the view from their terrace is by far the best in the Sultanahmet! Definitely would stay here again!

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.
