While the property is a small one, it offers a good stay. Perfect, perfect for its location. Everything you want to see is either within walkable distance or accessible via the tram service. Has an elevator and a decent breakfast spread. It does not have a regular restaurant service, so you might want to look at other options during the... More

I loved everything about this hotel!!! Location - the BEST. Amidst the charming cobblestone streets of Sultanahmet, literally a stone throw away from the Blue Mosque and Aga Sophia. The tram is a 2 minute walk away Rooms - We chose the standard room. Whilst being a tad pokey it had everything we needed and was definitely value for money... More

Favourite hotel in Istanbul, one of the best I've ever stayed in. Bearing in mind I've been to Istanbul many times, and around the world many times over. We usually stay in the common 5* chains ie Hilton. I think the MP stands out for the following reasons. First, the level of service at the MP hands down beats any... More

Amazing hospitality service, comfortable rooms, very nice calm old city center, which close with famous historical places, nice breakfast, terrace and big open air terrace with panoramic view. Additionally to all of it - reasonoble price.

I returned to Istanbul this summer after visiting last June. Previously I stayed way too far out from Sultan Ahmet Square so wanted something much closer. With Magnaura palace you can't really get any closer to Blue Msq and Aya Sofia, there is not a closer hotel. The rooms were very nice and clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful... 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.
