Great location in the heart of old city near all the major sites.We stayed in two rooms in an adjacent building that seems to have been renovated recently. The only issue we had was with Wifi, but everything else was great and as advertised

We stayed here on 2Jun with 2 other families. Ismael / Tulay made us feel at home. Ismael even walked us to a nice plaza with many restaurants. A nice bed and breakfast feel. Though there are stairs, Ismael insisted on bringing all our luggage up.. WillGrey / Larry

Finding the hotel was quite simple, the vibrant blue colour stands out very dramatically and fits in perfectly with the rest of the city. The hotel itself inside has a very classic feel to it, but still with a modern edge I didn't expect when coming to Istanbul. When we got there we had a lovely warm welcome, and was... More

Very friendly and helpfull staff. Great everyday room cleaning. Well sized and very clean rooms. Good location, close to the metro and lots of dining places. I would book here again. Only downside is that the walls are too thin, so it can be some disturbance from the other patrons. The host should recive some praise for feeding the stray... More

Quiet area, excellent room service and cleanliness, very greeting and helpful host, well equipped rooms. Breakfast was good by turkish standards. A bit noisy due to street work during our stay, but this is obviously a temporarily issue.

I spent a couple of nights here and I must say it was the best last minute decision ever! The hosts are lovely. The staff is very friendly and ensures the guests have a comfortable stay. The rooms are spotlessly clean and the services are top notch. What works best for this hotel is the location, it's a walking distance... More

Found Go Turkey Tours site while planning for our day trip to Ephesus from Istanbul. Responses of the owner Mr Ismail were almost immediate and when we arrived, it is just like having a Friend in Turkey who is an sms away for almost anything, including our cancelled flight (obviously not the fault of the travel agency, but the airline)...

We stayed here for 5 nights. The hotel is less than a 5 minute walk to Ayasofia and the Blue Mosque, and approximately 10 minutes walk to Topkapi palace and the Grand Bazaar. Check-in was quick and smooth. We were lead to our room, which exceeded our expectations. The rooms have classy and sophisticated decor and ambiance, were immaculately clean... More

The Olba Hotel is truly a hidden gem in the middle of historical Istanbul. You can reach the blue mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace and the Basilica Cistern in a short walk. Ismail warmly welcomed us, as we finally found the hotel and showed us the sightseeing highlights on the map. The rooms were clean and there wasn't anything missing.... 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.
