My husband found this pretty hotel on the website. I liked it right away and it became much more when you actually see and feel it. Whole hotel is just pretty and made my trip started!! Thank you for the owner and staff who were very supportive and helpful. ウェブで見て一目惚れでしたが、実際に泊まると部屋だけでなくホテル全体に包み込まれ、恋に落ちますよ❤︎

For the price, this little hotel is a gem. Rooms are on the smaller side, but very clean and well appointed with the unique hanging lanterns in every hotel room. Breakfast is included and very good. The management goes out of their way to please in every way they can. The location cannot be beat. Literally 1 block from the...

This hotel is a delight. Right in the centre of Istanbul, around the corner of major attractions such as The Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia, its idiosyncratic decor immediately transports the visitor to a different world. Our rooms were comfortable and spotlessly clean with toiletries and well-stocked minibars. The staff were welcoming, pleasant and very helpful. I would certainly return.

Love this hotel with its eccentric decor, especially nice in the colder autumn weather as the thousands of hanging lights make it cosy & warm. Its the 3rd time i have stayed here. walking distance from all the best sights and the Grand Bazaar. the new Mameray train makes it easy to zip across to the other side.

We loved staying in this quiet well located hotel and were well looked after by the friendly and helpful staff. I would highly recommend staying here. Interesting and mildly eccentric decor makes for a nice change from the usual bland, banal and pastel environment of many city centre hotels.

When in Istanbul I always stay in the same wonderful room in the Kybele Hotel. Here one is treated as a family member and no effort is spared in making guests feel comfortable, as if in one's own home. The food is excellent and there is no better location in Sultan Ahmet for visiting historical sites in the ancient city...

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.
