The hotel looks nice, the staff is very helpful and the breakfast is amazing! But the bedroom are small, the bed is very soft, and they dont look at all like the photos on their website - my bedroom was quite simple compared to the photos. If you get a bedroom on the front you have an amazing view of...

Cleanliness requires improvement, but very friendly staff. Bit of a trek to sultan ahmet. Overall a good experience and the swimming pool and turkish bath were a lot of fun, especially for the kids. Recommended mostly because of the helpful staff.

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.
