I stay here quite often, on business. It's on the coast road overlooking the Sea of Marmara, convenient to the airport and just down the hill from Sultanahmet, Topkapi, Ayia Sofya, the Hippodrome and the Blue Mosque. Location is the main reason to stay. Rooms are standard boxes, the hotel is standard modern, the restaurant is good, but on the...

This is a very fine hotel in best location. Our room was large enough and well equipped. The staff is very professional, and all services like room service, breakfast, and airport shuttle were well organised and reliable. The breakfast is nothing exceptional but the breakfast room right in front of the Marmara Sea meeting the Bosporus is a Dream.

This is my second time at this hotel, and I love it. It faces the sea, so is a very relaxing place to recover from a day of seeing the sites. It's just a short walk away from the Old City and all its bustle, yet very relaxing. Staff is lovely.

We really enjoyed our stay at Kalyon hotel in Istanbul. Location is perfect, just some 5-10 minutes walk to the old city centre and all sightseeing (Tip: use backdoor for staff, this way you will take the shorter way). We had a beautiful view from our room. The room itself was in an excellent condition, bathroom kit available, Breakfast served...

Great location near tourist attractions in this area: Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia, Top Kapi palace etc. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Clean rooms and fairly ok food. If you are looking for a decent budget hotel that is a walking distance from the Sultanahmet area then this is a perfect choice.

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.
