Room & Suite (66)

AHMET EFENDI EVI IS SITUATED IN THE HEART OF ISTANBUL, in what is known as the Cankurtaran area. This is one of the oldest Byzantine towns and is at the heart of the Sultanahmet area. We are located about 20m away from Akbiyik Mosque, which was established in 1453, making it one of the first mosques to be built after the conquest of Constantinople on May 29th 1453.

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.

We stayed in a family room with separate bedroom and a sofa bed in the living space, ideal for the 4 of us. The property is about a 5min stroll to the Blue Mosque and Hippodrome, and there are plenty of good eateries around. It’s a 10min walk to the Sultanahmet tram station.

The owner, (woman) is not friendly at all. However the two waiters isa and Mohammed are great. They work very hard to keep the hotel running, they give advice and directions. Without them, the hotel would go bust!
