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.

I come to Istanbul often. I have been staying here since 2012. Love the staff (virtually zero turnover, so you see the same people, which makes it feel like family). The ladies are amazing...I don't know how they cook amazing breakfasts and clean all the rooms so well. Truly the hardest working staff I've ever met. Most of the time, I stay in the apartments down the street (hence review title). I have stayed on Floor 2 (apt 602), Floor 3, (apt 603) and downstairs. I've also stayed in the Sea View room with the jacuzzi tub. Take a bath with a view of the mosque and lights of the Old City. So relaxing. Dr. Dogan and his staff bend over backwards for you. Again, like family. I work in a very stressful environment in a nearby country, so this place is a respite for me. I love the staff and appreciate all they do. I also like knowing I'm giving my hard earned cash to a family-run business and not a corporate chain. Close to everything! Tram stop (Çemberlitaş stop) is a short walk away. Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia are 5 minutes walk. There are great restaurants and rooftop terraces all around. I recommend the 7 Hills Terrace Restaurant and Ozi Pizza (see separate review) for nearby eats. If/when you come to Istanbul, give this great family your business. They will not disappoint you. There is no incentive for me to write reviews for Ada Hotel, other than I believe in supporting great people. From your first night, you will feel like a local, not a tourist.

Room Tip: I love the apartments (602 and 603), but sea view is best in the main hotel.

Traveling with a friend to Egypt we took advantage of the opportunity to lay over in Istanbul for just a couple of nights. I chose ADA Hotel based on location and walk-ability and it did not disappoint! The hotel is small and comfortable. The staff could not have been nicer. We could see the Bosphorus from our window and from the breakfast terrace on the top floor the view was tremendous! This is not a fancy place. It is warm, comfortable and the best location you could hope for! We walked out the door, around the corner and we were in the hippodrome and at the foot of the Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and cisterns. We walked to dinner and were comfortable everywhere we went. The hotel arranged transport to and from the airport.

The location is great, the staff were lovely, the hotel was nice and clean, and they served an amazing traditional Turkish breakfast, all at a very reasonable price. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again.

The Ada Hotel was the best place we could have stayed during our time in beautiful Istanbul. The accommodation is excellent, the situation in the old, quaint area of Sultanahmet is perfect and the host and staff are warm and inviting. We could not have been made to feel more welcome. We would definitely stay again. A big thank you to Jana and Halil. Jana welcomed us every morning with a smile and a hug and a delectable breakfast! Highly recommend! Thank you to the owner and staff.

It’s a small, authentic Turkish hotel friendly to families, clean and cosy. An ideal experience in an ideal location. Close, at walking distance, to all main sightseeing points, with a wonderful view from rooms and breakfast up floor. All the staff is very friendly and helpful. Boys gave us in several occasions smart advise and information and helped us book taxis and spectacles. Girls were present and discrete at the same time, always smiling, preparing rich and homemade warm breakfast. Delicious recipes every morning, great variety! Rooms are very well equipped and heating is excellent. Kids adored jacuzzi in their room. We had WiFi, TV, a small kitchenette, bottled water every day. Owners are very kind, welcoming and gentle, generous, they keep the place human, well organized and honor hospitality!
