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

Good and clean simple hotel. Breakfast is pretty good too. Excellent service, the reception is ready to help you with anything and everything. Tourist information, free maps, plan your day trips, plan your weekend, whatever! Reception is staffed 24x7 and the people staffing the reception at night are just as friendly and will help you with anything too.

Room was lovely, staff was super friendly and very helpful, especially Ismaeel. Facilities were good; clean bathroom/shower, fridge, microwave etc. House keeping very punctual too. Nice sized bed, and a lovely sofa in the room too. A/C and heating were all in working order. Any issues we had were swiftly corrected. Located away from the main bustle of SultanAhmet, but... More

It is such a good review. Thanks a lot... In annex building we have only two floors. In Sultanahmet, because the buildings are old and in historical area, there is no lift as usual. Hope to meet you again.. Tulay More

Excellent choice, really beautiful and well appointed room, reasonable price, very helpful staff, perfect location! Comfortable bed, shower, etc. It's a touristic location, 5 min walk to the Blue Mosque, but feels very real and not "touristy." Can walk everywhere. Would definitely stay again!

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.
