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

Small but clean rooms with average breakfast. They have special offer on their web site (10% discount when paid with cash, if book more then three nights you got free Turkish bath or airport shuttle), but in reality this is not true, you get nothing of this. On way home almost miss the flight because on reception forget to book... More

It is walking distance from all the important places like Blue Mosque etc.and though in the centre of the city , it is tucked away in a street . On the way there are many small eateries and shopping .All... More

Stayed at the Artefes for seven nights. The hotel is within walking distance to the major attractions of the Old City. Went to breakfast once and I would considerate it adequate. The restaurant is located on the top floor providing a decent view of the sea. The terrace, located above the restaurant, has tables and lounge chairs and provides an... More

We stayed 1 nigth at the Artefes on arrival and were greeted by very friendly staff and then stayed again after our cruise for 4 nights. The rooms are not massive but they are very nice, the open windows allow the breeze in if it's not too hot and in our second room we had a lovely corner window. It... More

Like I said great staff, very helpful. Neighborhood was great, the local restaurants and eateries fab. Very close to the Sultanahmet area, tram lines etc. Easy base for moving about the city. Loved it so much, having my family return in November and also again in December.

There was only one down side to this hotel. It was located next to a playground where children played til late in the evening. This was not much of a disadvantage unless you had a window opening above the playground. The rooms were clean and spacious with a good bathroom. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious and included in the price.... More

Helpful and friendly staff, particularly at reception. Comfortable and clean rooms and quiet location for Istanbul whilst being near to the main sites of the Sultan Ahmet area and plenty of restaurants. Very pleasant stay.

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.
