I am so happy we've chosen this hotel for our short Istanbul getaway! The rooms are very nice and clean, with free toiletries, AC, fringe, and a small kettle. And we had a great sunrise view every day! Breakfast was good, but not really impressive. The location could not be better though. Almost all main attractions within short walk. It's... More

I just spent 6 nights at this hotel from Aug 2nd to 8th It's a great hotel at a perfect location and with an excellent price. The plusses: + the price, a real bargain, 225 € for 6 nights (breakfast included) + perfect location. It's very close to the most interesting attractions (by foot) but it's also a few minutes...

Such a nice and clean hotel. They clean the room on a daily basis. The stuff were so friendly. Whenever we needed to go somewhere they showed us the place on the map and told us what to ride. The hotel is near a tram station (2 minutes walk) called Gulhane. Using the tram and the funicular one can reach... More

The hotel is located next to the Gulhane park and one quarter from the nearest tram station, Gulhane, with easy access to/from Ataturk airport by tram. It has small but clean and cozy rooms, with just enough space. Very good breakfast and very helpful staff, 24h/7.

Fantastic location as it is an only five minutes walk to Hagia Sophia, Topkapı Sarayı, Sultan Ahmet Mosque, Yerebatan Saray as well as from the spot that cruises to Vosporos begin. The tram passes right outside the hotel so the access to the Airport [with only a change] as well as Galata district [Dolmabahçe Sarayı and Taksim Square] is a... More

Generally I come as a very picky customer but here I only could wish for more space in the room (but it's the old part of the city where almost all hotels are really tiny) and maybe proper duvet covers: it's not too comfortable to sleep under a sheet and a bed cover. The rest is absolutely great: - the... More

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.
