I am a Marriott person but decided to step out of my comfort zone so we could be down by the Blue Mosque area. We initially booked for the Millennium Suites but when we arrived they were redoing those rooms and had moved us to the Senatus. At first I was a bit worried but the staff was incredible. This...

Fantastic hotel in a beautiful location. Excellent and attentive staff - especially Kadir who looked after us and nothing was too much trouble. His happy and kind manner, not to mention his excellent local knowledge really made our stay special. We cannot recommend this hotel enough. Thank you for a lovely stay and hope to see you again next year.

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.
