Star Hotel is a descent place to stay. The lobby is nothing fancy and the rooms are nice and clean. I enjoyed the details such as the lavender pouches, the extra pillows and the slippers which aren't seen in many hotels these days. You could tell that the places needed minor fixes but nothing major. The rooftop terrace is always... More

Very simple hotel but the price is right for a very quick stay. Two stars only because the rooms are very, very simple. The staff were cool and very friendly. Loved the morning breakfast on the veranda. Close to all he main attractions like blue mosque ... Etc.

This is such an excellent hotel with an even better location. It's a few minutes walk to major attractions like the Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque.Their roof terrace gives you a marvelous view of the Bosphorous Strait. The rooms were clean and neat. It's a pretty sleepy area during the day but the pace does pick up come sunset. You... More

It's extremely comfortable and feels like home after a while. The breakfast on the roof with a view of the Bosphorous started our days there. The hosts are friendly and warm. Plus, it's located in the heart of the Old City and all the major sites are at a walking distance. No one shall regret staying here. Missing Istanbul!

I stayed for 2 nights during a business visit to Istanbul. I would say the hotel was decent and good enough for my purpose. I went there during off season, and the weather was at its lowest point, so couldn't expect much from them. Quality of rooms and service was very good at this price.

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.
