This hotel is situated a few steps from Topkapi Palace and Hagia Sophia in a street with attractive cafes and restaurants. The staff is very friendly and helpful and made me feel at home. It is very good value for your money and definitely recommendable for a stay in Istanbul.

The hostel is in the historic centre: only 5 minutes walking by the blue Mosque! the most famous monuments are very close to the hostel, you don't need to take taxi o bus, just walking. The rooms are clean and the breakfast is Turkish with some international auditing. I recommend it to everybody!

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.
