When we arrived, Sabo (the host) greeted us and informed us that he was giving us a free upgrade. We got two rooms on the terrace rather than the basement. The rooms were a good size and clean. This hotel offers a free breakfast, so that was a nice touch. All the staff is very friendly and helpful in answering... More

This hotel is almost perfect - it is centrally located, near the tourist attractions, has a great view from the restaurant, good staff, very clean rooms, free a/c and wi-fi, good buffet breakfast and despite all the pluses, it is still very cheap. I would highly recommend it, unless you have problem with stairs (which I don't). There might be... More

This hotel is a gem. It is location centrally located to everything, reasonably priced, clean and the staff is excellent. Amenities are basic but exactly what I look for when I travel. Sergea at the front desk is very friendly and helpful. Nice small breakfast served by a wonderful lady named Fatima on a rooftop patio with great views. There... More

We had a daytime layover in Istanbul from 8am to 8pm. We needed a convenient base to leave our bags, take a shower and explore.I chose this hotel on booking.com because it had an early check in time (11am) AND a great Sultanahmet settiing AND rooms for just 31 Euro. In the event, we arrived at 9:30am and Sergei the... More

My husband and I stayed in room 103. PROS: This is a quaint hotel and in a convenient location in the old part of the city. All you have to do is walk, maybe, 3-4 blocks and you are located on the Sultanahmet Square. The breakfast buffet has an arrange of food, pleasantly presented. The rooms are clean and tidy.... More

Extra towels, use an iron, offer to send your laundry out, organise any tour you want, recommend restaurants and at end of the day happy to spend time with you.

The competition is tight in the Sultanahmet area. But for just 25 euros a single, you would find this one hard to beat. Admittedly, the room was a bit small with poor lighting for evening reading. But it had a balcony and the breakfast spread on the top floor with views over the Bosporus was one of the highlights of... More

Great little spot in old town, a roof top breakfast served fresh by local women, heated towel rack and a great shower. The rooms are mostly taken up by beds, but were adequate as one wants to explore not sit in the room. Friendly desk staff. I highly recommended!

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to the Hotel Peninsula in Istanbul. We are a small boutique hotel, nestled quietly at the end of leafy laneway. We are nestled amount this city’s great historical landmarks and you will instantly transport your mind heart upon arrival. When you go to buy your morning paper, you stroll past our 489 year old Turkish Hamam, tangled with vines and moss. This truly is an immersion into an oriental parallel, and we are pleased to be able to offer you warm, friendly accommodation during your journey here. The Peninsula has become a cultural institution over the years and we look forward (“wait with four eyes” in Turkish) to welcoming you to our extended family. ... more   less
