A friend and I stayed here for three nights. The location is close to everything (5 minutes from Sultanahmet), though you are at the bottom of a hill. Good news is that your walk is always downhill at the end of the day. :)
A beautiful and perfectly situated hotel in a gorgeous set of old Ottoman houses, just five minutes away from Sultanahmet Square and the greatest attractions of old Constantinople. Very reasonably priced, gorgeous views, clean and cool rooms even in the summer, and a wonderful staff...More
What a gem of a hotel. Just a short walk away from all the main attractions. Gaye Greg and staff were such wonderful hosts. They went out of their way to help as I was travelling with my elderly brother inlaw. One of the staff...More
Stayed in June 2016 and felt we had the city almost to ourselves as it seems the terrorists are winning the scare campaign. Great for us in terms of queues etc but the local scene is doing it tough. Gaye, Greg and the staff at...More

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.

Hi, As the others have said, send an email to Greg and Gaye and they will arrange a ride for you. The driver meets you outside the arrivals hall and has a sign with your name on it. It's very easy. Have a great trip!
