My husband and I stayed in Esans Hotel from 24th-26th of June 2016 and we loved it. Hotel staff was very kind and made sure we felt at home. Rooms were clean and beds comfortable. We were given a map and every essential tip/guidance required. Hotel was walking distance from all major tourist attractions which was a bliss. As its... More

This was a lovely little hotel close to Hagia Sofia and a great street with lots of restaurants called Akbiyik Cd. We were on the 3rd floor in a superior double room which was large with a great view of the water. The hotel was clean, great bathroom with a large shower, in room coffee and tea facilities. Breakfast is... More

I've been thinking a lot about my stellar week in Istanbul last August. I was so fortunate to be there at a time when I did not worry for a moment about security issues. Hotel Esans was a vital part of why my time in Istanbul was so memorable -- the team was so charming and welcoming, as was the... More

Hotel arranged transport from airport to hotel and back again. We stayed for 3 nights (far too short) and have nothing but praise for Cetin and his team . Going over and beyond the call of duty is an understatement , and there genuine hospitality has left us leaving not just Istanbul but more so Esans hotel with a view... More

Wonderful hotel and wonderful service. From first arrival to departure, the staff always made an effort to offer great service, specifically Cetin. The hotel is in a perfect location to get to the main tourist sights, restaurants, the sea and tram. Highly recommend getting an upgraded room, they have fun themes to each room. Do also get in touch with... More

We've stayed twice at the Esans Hotel in three years. The second time was two mornings after the terrible bombings at Istanbul Airport. We could have skipped Istanbul from our trip, but we acknowledge that the people of Turkey need our support now, more than ever in the recent past. Coming back to Esans is like coming home. Cetin remembered... More

Hello travellers, As we all know booking the first hotel in a new country after the long flight can set the tone for the trip. Well 18 hrs, 1 stop later we arrived in Istanbul. Walking from the terminal the first thought was," Is the transfer the hotel organised there?" Yes !!!!! Big sign our name and a very clean... More

This is a great hotel. It's reasonably small with a great location that is a short walk to Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque and the tram line. The trams then give you a short ride to the Grand Bazaar and also easy access to the ferry terminal and Spice Market. The staff at Esans are some of the most... More

This is a great hotel! First of all the location couldn't be better. It's 2 blocks from the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. It's on a quiet street and is close to everything. The staff truly make this hotel special. One night we were going to dinner and asked for directions. The attendant (Engin) said he was finishing his... More

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.
