Great hotel, great location. Mehmet Ozkan and his staff do everything they can to be sure that you enjoy your stay. When I fell on a sidewalk (nothing to do with the hotel) and it was late on Saturday and the pharmacies were about to close, they sent someone to buy Ibuprofen for me. Hotel is very clean and quiet.... More

But the absolute best aspect of Hotel Coliseum is the owner and staff -- they are incredibly helpful and kind, always going out of their way to make sure your experience is the best possible, and also have a great...

A gem of a hotel located about a 5 min walk from the Hippodrome and historic sites in Sultanahmet. The hotel has a lovely terrace which overlooks the Hippodrome and Blue Mosque and some of the rooms have a lovely view of the sea. The breakfast is included in the room rates and the spread is lavish. The staff 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.
