Nice little hotel near many sights in the Sultan Ahmed district. Helpful staff and excellent cleaning. Cheapest hotel I ever stayed in. Best value for the money. Only 10 min. walk to transportation and it was free when we were there

We spent 5 days here and overall had a good experience. It's definitely worth it for the price-the location is really great (about 15 minutes walk from Sultanahmet station and the Hagia Sophia and 5 minutes from the little Hagia Sophia but definitely hard to find the first time) and the hotel is clean. The breakfast buffet is very good... More

This was the first time I have stayed for the second time, and for a good reason! A charming, perfectly located hotel in the best of Istanbul season AND FOR A VERY AFFORDABLE PRICE. Hasan the receptionist, Ilias the waiter/handyman and gentle Leo-the-boss. Generous breakfasts, rose-bushes decorated Bosphorus-view terrace relaxation, free hammam for over-the-three-night-stayers, Artefes is definitely not to be... More

The hotel location is 2-3 minutes from Sultanahmet. We stayed in the room for 3 persons. Enough space, floor both in the room and bathroom are clean. But floor creaks. And towels' colour is grey. During 4 nights they didn't change bed linens (there was a stain on the cushion). I kept leaving tips for them but even this didn't... More

We booked economy room and it was better than we expected. Small clean room with everything you need: double bed, kettle, safe, minibar. Towels were changed daily. Breakfast was ok. But make sure to come early otherwise you can miss something. Nice view from the terrace.

We spent five days in Istanbul, it was very good. The hotel is in the center, the staff is kind, the breakfast was delicious, everything is ok. We tried the sauna, it was warm and clean. From the roof the panorama is nice.

We were a group of 3 adults and booked to stay 4 nights. Our triple room consisted of 3 single beds in a room barely big enough to fit a queen size bed in We were the only people staying in the hotel at the time we stayed, so this must have been the biggest triple room available.

Artefes hotel has excellent location and that's therl reason we picked it. ,All services such as room service, front desk, breakfast, taxi, etc were great. They can even arrange a shuttle to the airport. Rooms were small but that's pretty common in Europe. The only thing I didn't like was the fact that when I booked a room I was... 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.
