The staff kitchen was opposite and the staff felt the need to arrange the whole kitchen at 5am, lots of banging and loud talking. The hotel is located...

We stayed in a 3-bed room, with A/C and view on the Bosphorus. The staff is very nice and helpful, the hotel is located right in the touristic center, maybe 600 metre to 1km from Agia Sophia and the Blue Moske. There are also a lot of restaurants and narguile-bars in the nearby streets. The breakfast is good and one...

I liked the Star Guest House because of the friendly atmosphere and polite staff. The room was very clean and comfortable. Don't worry about breakfast because it is very delicious. Its location is very well. Nights are more exciting in the Star Guest House and like carnival. I wish I could stay a bit more long.

We were independent travellers, and not attending any tourscarried by agencies at all.

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.
