Lovely room, amazing large bathroom, caring and obliging staff plus good location close to main tourist attractions. Breakfast was 'something for everyone buffet' which we loved. Hope to go back later in the year!

A lovely hotel at a absolute fantastic location. The rooms were slightly small but clean and comfortable. We paid a little extra for a night check out which was fantastic. The breakfast offered a good choice and set us up for a day of exploring beautiful Istanbul. Haya Sofia and Blue Mosque literally just a few steps away. Plenty of...

Noisy. Dirty. The breakfast buffet is very very bad. The quality of the food is poor. The staff is very unprofessional and impolite. When making a reservation by e-mail or phone, they do not have reservation request form as a Microsoft Word document (only PDF) which is complicated. And the worst thing about the reservation is that the Card Identification...

The hotel is fantastically placed right by the Aya Sofia and close to the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace & Basillica Cistern. The rooms are comfortable, and were a good size. The only downside was the sound proofing, I heard both rooms either side when they came in each night, and the metro right outside my window was a little distracting...

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.
