Very nicely decorated hotel in a great location. Close to the major tourist sites and the Grand Bazaar. Nice restaurants in the vicinity. May not be buzzing with the night life of Beyoglu and Istiklal but infinitely preferable. Staff very friendly. Roof top a nice escape from the hustle and bustle.

This is the perfect hotel for a summer break in Istanbul. When we first entered we were warmly greeted by the man at reception and offered a glass of Turkish apple tea and Turkish delight as we waited to check in. Once we had checked in a staff member helped us take our bags up to our room and explained... More

I had a bit of a horror start to my trip in Istanbul. The hotel I booked online turned out to be a scam to claim no show fees but still sends you looking all over the place trying to find the impossible to locate hotel. So I was hesitant to book another hotel online before seeing the place first.... More

This hotel is excellently situated just a couple of streets behind the Sultanahmet tram stop, so is within only a very few minutes of all the big attractions - Aya Sofya, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar. They couldn't have been more helpful in picking me up from the airport and answering various questions by email. The room was compact but excellent,... More

The hotel is located in a prime part of the old city. It is on a quiet street, but close to the hustle and bustle of cafes, restaurants, and main attractions. The staff is amazing - incredibly accommodating and ready to attend to your needs. The rooms were clean and beds comfortable. Would definitely stay here again!

Had a very pleasant stay at the Nowry Efendi with my wife. Room was compact but nicely furnished, quiet, perfectly clean and a very comfortable bed. Bathroom featured a proper shower. Breakfast was great with plenty of choices, and a decent view form the rooftop terrace. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Location is perfect for seeing the sights but away... More

We stayed here for one night and were made very welcomed by the reception staff. We were actually booked into one of the cheaper basement rooms but were given a room with a window which was added bonus. Room was very comfortable and clean. The only issue was the AC which did not work properly therefore as the room was... More

It has about 30 rooms, and can be found in an alleyway off Sultanahmet stations. The hotel is surrounded by cafes and restaurants for tourists, and souvenir shops (don't buy here). There are similar hotels around the vicinity as well. Pros: - Great location as it is walking distance to T1 Sultanahmet station - General manager, Mr Ulas, introduced himself... 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.
