Antea Palace Hotel is perfectly located in the old city with the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, the Hippodrome, Cistern, and Hagia Sophia within easy walking distance. Still, it isn't in the most touristy part of town, so you see children playing soccer in the park, hear the call to prayer from a nearby mosque, and encounter some of the old... 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.
