Basically this is a 2 star hotel, with a 2 star price (for istanbul), so for the most part you get what you pay for. It's important to manage your expectation - with such glowing reviews on trip advisor, you may end up being disappointed. Pros: -Central location - walking distance to key attractions and tram. A good local restaurant... More

The breakfast would cost 15 lire Just up the road. The facilities are very clean and the manager , Imray , Was always there to... More

I stayed in a dorm room and it is very comfortable and makes me feel like home. The staff are really helpful and friendly. Breakfast food was nice, the view overlooking the sea is perfect. Manage to catch a perfect sunset from the rooftop too.

We were there 3 weeks before.. it was a bit chilly in istanbul but the guest house is no doubt super clean plus it is 3 - 4 minutes away from main attractions like blue mosque, hagia sophia etc. we always go for dinner to a restaurant which was right downstairs to the guest house,, loved the food and hospitality....

This is a pretty good hotel, especially for what you're paying for. I actually stayed here 2 nights. The first room was a bit below my expectations since the shower did not drain properly, so I had to run it off and wait for the water to drain. But other than that, the room was spacious and clean. The second... More

If I come bsack to Istanbul I wuld stay here again. It's a 5 minute walk from the Blue Mosque with several stores and good restaurants nearby. Our room seemed recently remodelled, and it was clean. The staff was friendly and helpful, and arranged a shuttle to SAW airport. A great budget hotel.

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.
