Stayed with my young kids for four nights on June. Hotel is small, clean and away from busy streets, yet it's a walking distance from Top Topkapı Palace. Got a room on level (-1), which you have to avoid if you don't like smell of food and breakfast noise. Speaking of breakfast, I didn't figure out why staff keep all... More

Located on a quiet street in the heart of the city close to major tourist sites. The room was bright, clean, but most importantly is the courtesy and the availability of the staff. Resut, Hasan and Murat are examples of professionalism and availability to help, especially when you are in a big city and you face a problem. We thank

A small hotel hidden in a calm street from the city noise it's surprising how close is it to the historical centre. Only few steps to the local souq, the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia, and just few more to yummy local restaurants followed by the Grand souq. Both room and bathroom were clean and cosy with a practical small... More

We stayed at the Acra for three nights in March and found it to be very good. The staff were excellent and very helpful and the hotel was located very close to the blue mosque. Literally a 5 minute walk and you were there. There were also numerous restaurants in the area which made choosing a place for dinner very... More

A great service from the hotel staff. They gave us complete information. A great view during breakfast plus you don't need to take any transportation to reach Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia and Topkapi palace.

Booking this hotel was the best decision we made during our trip to Istanbul. Travelled back in September 2014 when the weather was nice and pleasant, fall was just around the corner. Acra hotel is right in the heart of Sultanahmet and allowed us 4 days of relaxing sight-seeing to all major tourist spots by foot such as Sultanahmet square,... More

This modestly elegant hotel is ideally located in the Sultanahmet district of Istanbul, from which it is easy to visit the Blue Mosque, Ayia Sofia, etc. The building was converted to the present hotel in 2009, but was originally the Byzantine Great Palace of Constantinople (the ‘Sacred Palace’), and the breakfast room, below street level, displays some architectural remains of...

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.
