We stayed in Duran Apart first 2 weeks of April 2016 . It was our first trip (Mum &4 children) to Turkey and was honestly scared for being alone in new place.. I guess it was our great luck to end up at Duran Apart where we spent the most wonderful 18 days vacation feeling safe, welcomed and entertained. Thanks... More

Great and I would even say strategic location! All the greatest sites in Istanbul are within a walking reach, Duran Apart being surrounded by street restaurants of the kind you'd only find in Istanbul, not to mention the Hafiz Mustafa restaurant, 90 seconds away, which sells the tastiest sweets in the world. Ever. The staff in Duran Apart is really... More

There is also a lot of restaurants where to eat kebab, turkish shops and places nearby like hamam. The Hotel is small and cosy with Turkish atmosphere. Our room... 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.
