Great location in Sultanahmet. Beds were not comfortable at all though. The receptionist also told me that he tried looking me up on facebook prior to my arrival but couldn't find me. Really weird. He somehow found my friend and me by the end of our stay and added us. Not appropriate or appreciated.

This was my third and FINAL stay at Hotel Ida, and things have gone horribly downhill. It is true that it was a simple, "you get what you pay for" place to stay. However, the prior staff were kind and attentive, my room was always clean, though shabby, and I really had NO complaints. However, the prior staff have all... More

+++ Excellent location, very close to all sightseeing objects. Also many small restaurants are in the same street. Very small hotel in a noisy, but fun street. The receptionist was very warm person, willing to help in every possible way. The rooms are tidy, the towels were changed couple times during our stay (5 nights). We had a sea view... More

I'm staying in the Ida right now. I'm in Sultanahmet District of Istanbul for seven days. The Ida is cheap and on the main restaurant/cafe street of this area, about five easy minutes walk from the walls of the Blue Mosque. The room is small but that is hardly a problem, who needs a big room when your main reason... More

The 'hotel' in the name is a bit misleading, it's best to consider it a hostel with the benefit of the privacy of your own room and bathroom for the same price as a dormitory. It really is only just off the main square, at the heart of everything a traveler to Istanbul could wish to see. The downside of... More

I'm a firm believer in value as a hotel room is just a place to rest one's head at the end of the day but this "hotel has to be the worst I've ever stayed in on many travels around the world! It is just one room wide, about 10ft, with one room front and back on four floors! The... 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.
