"Centrally located in Istanbul’s historic Sultanahmet area, Historical Preferred Hotel Old City is situated only walking distance away from Istanbul’s popular historical attractions, Topkapi Palace, Aya Sofia, More Blue Mosque, Spice and Grand Bazaars. Our hotel restoration took 3 years. İt is decorated with handy-crafts, engravings,forged iron, paintings, glassware, etc, which are reflecting Ottoman naval force history and different periods of Turkey's history. Historical Preferred Hotel Old City offers comfortable accommodations with traditional and modern features at it's best. Each room has LCD TV, free Wi-Fi, air condition and private bathrooms; some rooms provide sea view. Guests can enjoy breakfast with traditional Turkish specialties and some international classics at the restaurant of the hotel" Less

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
