The location of the hotel is just perfect! It is near most museums and places that need to be visited during a stay in Istambul. We walked to most of the museums, restaurants and stores, and avoided spending money on bus tickets. The hotel is very nice, clean and comfortable. It als offers a wonderful view, especially from the cafeteria....

Nice hotel, very good location with reasonable price and kind employees. Breakfast was not bad with different choices, and nice terrace view. Hotel and rooms were always clean. Close to the sea, Aya Sofya, Blue Mosque and Top kapi museum. Many transportation options are available there. Notices: - weak internet network. - old furniture and beds. - average spa service.

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.
