- 1) window could not be closed; 2) poor breakfast; 3) short bed; 4) when stay in room too long it becomes stuffily + cosy stylish room, all necessary things are in number, very friendly staff,super location - just near Blue Mosque and Aya Sofia, super view from terrace.

Simple, clean, tasteful, friendly staff, lovely breakfast, beautiful views, and incredible location all with a very reasonable price. We will definitely return for another stay during our next visit to Istanbul. Visiting during Ramadan was inspiring and beautiful!

We really love it here. Nice and clean room, nice breakfast, good location just next to all the important sites and amazing view from the top. Next time i want to stay here again. Wifi worked also well. It is possible to make a tea in the room which is really nice after walking all the day.

Firstly, I would have given 3.5 stars but was unable to. My flight was late leaving Gatwick and late getting into Istanbul. The transport I had arranged with the hotel to pick me up was waiting for me. No worries. I must say that the trip to the hotel was exciting to say the least. When we got near to... More

The hotel has a great location. The rooms are small, but if only there to sleep, so they do not need. Breakfast every day the same, for the man is not enough for a woman enough. From the terrace nice view of the Sultanahmet attractions Internet slow. I recommend it for tourists, all in walking distance

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.
