The manager made us feel as if we had arrived home, and he was very helpful in advising us things to see and do in Istanbul and Turkey.The room was clean and comfortable, although the shower was small. Our buffet breakfast was great and always fresh and tasty.

I may have written this in other reviews, but I have 10 years of experience in hotels in Canada and, when I check into a hotel, I tend to be hypercritical. In spite of this, I would have to say that Ahmet Efendi Evi is a perfect place to stay. When I checked in I felt as though I was... More

We just went here due to unexpected issues with our other booked hotel. The friendly staff did everything to help us, and was simply lovely. The room was nice and clean and have everything you need. I recommend it as it is probably one of the best in this price range.

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.
