Best location to stay in the ancient part of Istanbul. Very close to the main mosques. The place is nice, comfortable and the service is very good also. The terrace has an ocean front view from the terrace where we have breakfast and it's really nice!

Clean, Bright, spacious room. My room was with a view to Aya Sophia and the room itself called the same) By the way, it's 5 min walking to main sighseeing - Sultanakhmet square, Grand Bazaar, etc. Sufficient breakfast. Having breakfast in the common room with the view to Bosphorus was wonderful. Staff is very helpful.

This hotel is just a 10min walk away from Sultanahmet, where you can find the most major sights of Istanbul. Our room was clean and comfortable and the hotel staff were all very nice. Breakfast was also great, offering a very decent spread to be enjoyed on their top floor with a great view of the sea. Would definitely stay... More

Small but good hotel for those who are looking for a quite place in the old city, it is located in a part of the old city that is not often is busy with cars, which makes it suitable for those who are searching for silence..

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.
