Raymond Hotel is a wonderful hotel to spend a lovely stay in. It is very comfortable, near the famous touristic places and the good shops. Most importantly, the staff members and especially the receptionists are very kind and helpful. They saved no energy to guide us and give us advice. We are really satisfied and we feel very thankful!

Location is so wonderful in the heart of historical area and so close to public transportation. Gulhane park and Marmaray serkaji station is few steps away. The blue mousque , Aya Sofia, Top Capi Cisterine, and Hocapasa mousqe and a hammamall are in a walking distance. Serhat and his crew were very friendly and cooperative. They made a lot of... More

The hotel is very very good located in the very center of the tourisitic area - the best advantage of the hotel. The room was small but clean and comfortable. The staff was nice and helpful. The breakfast is ok - nothing special. There was some noise - chicken ;) and islam prayers. But if you close the windows should... More

In plus: Location is great, right in the middle of Sultanahmet district having many of the city's main attractions at walking distance. Staff is really friendly In minus: Well this is a no-star hotel and you need to be aware of it. One day there was no Wifi for few hours (sure you can live without it), but the next... More

To be honest, I was sceptic when I first came here, but the service and the hospitality is amazing. Travelled turkey, but the level of friendliness and experience was unmatched. We had booked a different hotel for the last few days back, but decided on extending our stay here. Loved "Jan"!

Myself (21 yr old female) and 5 friends travelled to Istanbul for a 5 day trip. We chose this hotel as we were after a culturally rich experience and this is pretty much slap bang in the 'middle' of the old city Sultanahmet. The location was fantastic, only a 5 minute walk from the blue mosque, aya sofia and topkapi... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights. The room was ridiculously small. We had no space to move! The breakfast was disappointing. Boiled eggs were served every morning but no other eggs. The staff was friendly and helpful though. Nevertheless, I won't be back.

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.
