We stayed here for 2 nights and had a wonderful experience. It is an old wooden house converted to a hotel. The rooms are charming with comfortable beds. The breakfast was outstanding on a rooftop terrace overlooking the Golden Horn. We especially enjoyed our conversations with the hotel staff who were uniformly friendly, funny sand very helpful. We will definitely... More

I cannot say enough nice things about this hotel in the Sultanahmet district of Istanbul. The accommodations, location, and staff were all incredible. The hotel is located about three blocks south of the Ayasofia, and is even closer to one of two entrances to Topkapi. Gulhanne Park and most major tourist attractions are in quick walking distance. Two rows of... 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.

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

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.

These guys are so nice! The breakfast is great, especially with the view from the rooftop terrace. Rooms are clean and good. You can hear your upstairs neighbors but I heard them only late in the morning. Everything is at walking distance. Great hotel for a great price.

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.
