I cannot think of one negative for this hotel. The room was spacious, modern and clean. The bathroom was modern and clean. The location perfect - very close to the Haga Sophia, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cisterns and Sultanahamet Square. There are a number of restaurants nearby. On our last night we decided to have dinner at the hotel and we... More

This hotel is at an excellent central location very close to Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace apart from so many other landmarks. There is a great variety of restaurants on all sides of the hotel. We stayed there for 12 nights. Our stay was comfortable. Staff was co-operative. Front desk staff could speak English and would like to... More

After a business trip to Turkey, I had one day to look around the beautiful Istanbul. I booked one night in Hagia Sophia Hotel Old City. The location couldn't be better. You're a very short walking distance to Hagia Sophia Museum, the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and more. Tram is very close by and will take you to the Grand... More

Large, modern room overlooking the Hagia Sophia mosque, great breakfast, located in the Old City, an easy walk to sights, restaurants, etc., as stated in other reviews ( I'm a slow typist, so I won't duplicate). ATM's are everywhere in Istanbul; most give only Turkish Lira, but multi-currency ATMs are conveniently located right in front of the hotel. Be sure... More

It's one of the nice and closest hotel to all attraction in Istanbul Old City. Blue mosque and Hagia Sophia is around 100 meters away. Guest services was very good but Buffet Breakfast is Ok. View of Hagia Sophia from the Hotel is wonderful.

Nice large room with a view over the Hagia Sophia mosque. Excellent breakfast. The hotel is a few meters from the main attractions of Istanbul. There are a lot of restaurants nearby, inclusive good and cheap alternatives. The place is much better than Taksim!

Amazing service with some of the friendliest staff I have ever had while staying at a hotel. When they say they are very close to the attractions, they mean it - I could see the Hagia Sofia from my bedroom. Everything in the room is modern and very well maintained. I highly recommend staying at this 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.
