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.

This hotel was excellent and we stayed for 3 nights and paid £46 per night. The hotel and room was clean and spacious and a 10 minute walk to Blue Mosque and Haga Sophia. The hotel was in a perfect location with shops and restaurants close by and had a Sirkeci metro/train station few minutes away. I used taxis which was no issue and really cheap to and from places. The only reason I have not give 5 out of 5 is because the reason I chose this hotel was for the Spa facilities which started from 10am and each day I went down after breakfast after 10am non of the facilities were ready to use. I had to ask the cleaner who spoke no english so was a struggle to switch on the facilities which took around 30 minutes for the steam room and sauna to be ready to use which ate into my time as we had our days planned.

If you have only a couple of days (we had 3) this the best value for money you can get in Sultanahmet. It is very easy to go by foot to all the major sightseeing place: Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar etc. Nice clean rooms, good bathroom. Comfy beds. Excellent breakfast with loads of choices. Fantastic staff. Pool on roof was absolutely a winner in the heat.

We stayed for one night and the hotel was perfect for our needs. Lovely staff, a late check out (pre arranged) and free Turkish bath facilities included. Rooms was a little small but big enough. Nice shower in the bathroom. There is also a spa downstairs with a discount for hotel guests. All the must see attractions are within walking distance. Amazing!

This hotel has the Best location in the center of Istanbul, right in the old part. It is located on a street two blocks away from the tram line, and on a small street, so it is also nice and quiet. The rooms are quite small, but comfortable. The morning buffet is included in the Price and is the same all days, except for it changing every second day, between an omelet and pancakes. But good food and great coffee. Staff is very police and helpful. The spa was very noisy an stressfull for us, because they had Young people there jumping in and out of the pool.
