My third visit in last year and this hotel is great. Close to all the old city sites and service well just like home. Hamdi at reception is always helpful and has great knowledge of Istanbul. Food also great, home made and rooms very comfortable so I highly recommend you try this Hotel.

The hotel is located in the old city only a few minutes walk from major attractions such as the Hippodrome and Grand Bazaar. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. In my case Emirates lost my luggage and Mr Hamoi went... 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.
