Comfortable, tidy hotel on a quiet side street near the Blue Mosque. Easy walking to the sights. Furnishings are more of a traditional Turkish style. Super friendly owners. Nice breakfast (including omelets to order).

This hotel is extremely clean, up to date, nicely decorated, well managed by two brothers. Breakfast was one of the best during my three months of travel around the world. Location is good too, about a ten minute walk from all: the tram; the Grand Bazar; Sultanahmet, The Blue Mosque and Hagra Sophia. Stay three nights and the hotel will... More

Basileus Hotel is located in the heart of town and is walking distance to all the main attractions of the beautiful city of Istanbul. Ekram and his Team made sure we had the most comfortable stay. They go out of their way to suggest places to visit and help with any queries you have. Basileus is home away from home.... More

Perfect location, easy walking distance from most things in the old part of the city, including the blue mosque, Hagia Sofia, and grand bazaar and spice market. Staff always willing to chat and give any guidance... More

A really nice hotel very close to many main attractions of Istanbul like the Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque or the Sultans Palace. The service was great and the rooms were good size. The breakfast was brilliant they make a very nice omelette, and generally there is a lot of different food to try. Would recommend to anyone staying in Istanbul!

The mercenary attitude of so many of the people I met and the slack security and chaos at the airport....... leaving all that aside.... the hotel is a great little family-run business. I suppose, one of the advantages of being small and family run, is the personal nature of their service. If their service is not good, their whole livelihood... More

He will recommend the appropriate places to visit based on the duration of your stay. You could save some costs on tours. My concerns in... 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.
