The hotel is just a short walk to some of the history of this beautiful city, and just a few feet away many restaurants with awesome Turkish foods. As we walked through the... More

It is located in a most convenient place with all attractions are almost 5 min walk away. Bazaars are about 10-15 min away and food shopping and travel around Istanbul is very easy too tram station is just at the top of the road from the hotel. Rooms were spacious and staff were very welcoming and helpful

Good location just in the middle of sultanahmet. There are all kind off shops and restaurants. Besides you are a few steps from everything you have to see in Istanbul. The hotel is also wheelchair accesible. Have a good breakfast.

Friendly staff, nice hotel, all ammunities (restaurants, masjids, other shops) all less then a minute away. Grand bazaar is a 5-8 minute walk away. Excellent tours that we booked via the hotel. Breakfast was brilliant. Really nice and helpful staff who cater to all yours needs. 5 stars.

Room was very small but clean. The winning part is definitely the location! From the balcony you can see the blue mosque in front of you and there are public buses and tram that run in front of the hotel. Many restaurants around.

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.
