This is not a First Class Hotel, but the location was absolutely perfect and at a very good price. Our room was small, but we were only there to sleep so it really didn't matter. We were a block from the Plaza by the entrance of he Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia, and the Blue Mosque. Also, the Grand Bazaar was... More

You don't book this hotel for the room. You book it for the great location. There was so little space in the room, I had to put my suitcase in the walkway/entrance. The window faced a concrete wall 2 feet away. The room was a sardine can - a place to sleep. Breakfast was good. Location was fantastic. It is... More

The location is impeccable. It is about 2 minutes walk from the Sultanahmet metro station, Aya Sofya, and the blue mosque. We had a one night stopover in Istanbul due to a 16-hour connecting flight. And this is a perfect location for us to quickly get into Sultanahmet from the airport, get some late dinner and some rest, and wake... More

The best parts first: Location - The hotel is situated right next to sultanahmet square, walking distance from blue mosque, basillica cistern and other attractions. Breakfast - The best thing about the breakfast are the people who serve it. They make you feel welcomed and give a bright spark to start the day :) breakfast spread itself is decent -... More

The location is very convenient and the hotel is well maintained. The rooms are not very large but they are spacious enough. It is in a safe area, close to shops, restaurants, site seeing and other places. The staff were friendly and helpful. Would stay 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.
