Very good small hotel in the center of Sultanahmet area, only few meters from Haghia Sophia, Blue Mosque and tram station. Hotel has perfect location to reach the airport. The stuff was really nice and friendly. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good, especially fresh tomatoes and cucumbers. Excellent value for the price we paid :)

My husband Alam and I were looking for a super clean, comfortable and reasonably priced b&b right in the heart of Sultanahmet.. so we set out to find one. After a lot of search we found Grand Peninsula hotel and it was perfect for us. We spent almost 8 days there and didn't regret it even once. The staff was... More

The location of this hotel can't be beat-right in the Sultanahmet area within 5 minute walking distance to the tram, the Blue Mosque, and the Hagia Sophia. The roof is perfectly as well, as a quiet place to look at the sea while enjoying the complementary breakfast. The room itself was clean, comfortable, and simple-exactly what I was looking for....

First, the location is quite ideal as the hotel is located in the Sultanahmet area within 5 minute walking distance to the tram, the Blue Mosque, and the Hagia Sophia. And its roof is perfectly situation to provide views over the sea while you enjoy the complementary breakfast. I would recommend going up to the roof in the evening as... More

Found Grand Peninsula in Lonely Planet and we were not disappointed! You cannot beat the location of this hotel; in the Sultanahmet area just below the Blue Mosque and Aya Sofya. 5 minute access to the tram for getting to other places, including the airport. Sapo, Ahmet, and Ramazan are the hosts and are all prompt with email responses when... More

We spent only one night on a long layover. Grand Peninsula was recommended to us by a friend. Price was very reasonable ($120/3 people, 1 room, single beds) but this was during slow season. Location is ideal - 20-30 min from the airport and in the heart of the Sultanahmet district. Istanbul's top sights are within short walking distance (Blue... 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.
