We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights altogether. For one night before a tour and two nights after the tour. The first night was in the economical room. Do not stay in these rooms because they are ridiculously small. We asked for a bigger room on our return and the room we were given was almost twice as big... More

We have visited Istanbul in October, and stayed in Istanbul Holiday Hotel. The economic rooms are really small, but the others are fine. We reserved the economic one, but weren't satisfied with the sizes. Special thanks to receptionist Islam, who quickly solved our problem, and made our stay very pleasant.

I stayed there for 2 days during my trip to Istanbul. The staff was fantastic! especially, the guy in reception, Islam. He was very helpful, guiding and supportive. My gratitudes to him. Rooms were spacious and clean. Hotel's location is also within walking distance of Istanbul's main sights, like Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar.

I was interested to visit Turkey just to see places like Blue Mosque, Topkapi and of course Spice Bazaar. Literally, hotel located in 50 meters from Blue Mosque. Before i heard that turkish people in bazaars can easily fool you, so i decided to ask the guy in reception (his name is Islam) for help. The guy was very helpful... 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.
