A really good place with the sweetest staff.. They will show you in a map were to go, and which places are the best to visit when you are a visitor in the lovely Istanbul. :-) The hotel is in a local place, but still its very close to Aya Sophia and all the other places to visit. We would... More

The Tashkonak is a friendly little place that strives to provide the service of a much more expensive hotel. It is located just an easy couple of minutes (3-4 if you don't stop to shop the little stores along the way) walk to the Blue Mosque and another 2-3 to the tram stop in Old Istanbul. The staff was always... More

This is a small hotel based in the old quarter. It is difficult to find at first and I was glad we used the hotel's transfer service to get us there quickly. The transfer service can be organised by emailing the hotel with your flight details and costs 25 Euros one way. The hotel is very well run, the staff... More

I've been in this hotel for 3 nights, more or less a last minute decision - but the best I've ever made. Its a nice hidden, rustic hotel. Everything is small and seems like a family business - what I like the most. Staff was friendly and helpful 24/7. I liked my room with its bathroom. Most I cared was... More

Great location. Great staff. Nice rooms and building that combine the right mix of traditional elements with modern amenities. Daily free breakfast that is worth at least $10/person on a rooftop that overlooks the old city leading down to the Bosphorus. Amazing views of the sunrise. If we are ever in Istanbul again, we will stay here. No reason to... More

I stayed at this hotel for one week in December. I used the airport transfer service, which was excellent with free water and snacks after the plane journey. The hotel staff were all efficient and helpful. The room (107) was an impressive size for a city hotel, the bathroom was also a good size (albeit that the shower cubicle is... 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.
