Nice and walking distance from the attractions and restaurants. We ordered room service but did not receive anything (maybe language barrier). They were very helpful and assist with giving advice about exchanging of money.

A lovely hotel located close to most of what the city has to offer, not too close, but not too far, either. Authentic feel with lovely furnishings, and beautiful decor. A hearty breakfast which was always good. lovely staff who was always there to help. Also, WiFi.

We stayed here for two nights as a weekend trip. The taxi driver from the airport had a bit of a struggle to find the place, so I assume they are not too popular. The reception staff was not too welcoming when we arrived and we received a room on the back of the hotel and on the lowest floor...

I have stayed at the Avicenna 3 times before, and was not always satisfied. This time it was really ok. Cleaning of the rooms has really improved, but the rooms really need an upgrade now. I got the room I wished and had booked it through booking.co . Restaurant was closed. Breakfast was ok since it was off season.

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.
