Neighborhood
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.

Our room was very clean and quiet, and the location can’t be beat for old town charm near the Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia and Topkapı Palace. The bed and bathroom were very average, and there were some marks from old water damage on the walls....More

Great hotel close to all major tourist attractions. We had walking distance to most places and thanks to great staff, we also learnt how to use Turkish public transport with no problems at all! Definitely worth your stay in Istanbul.
