I usually stay in hotels, resorts. This time I was traveling by myself and I wanted to experience staying at a hostel. From the moment I entered Cesar, was at the front desk, was super friendly, gave me a map, and showed me how close Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi, Basilica cistern just to name a few were. 6 mins...

It just a normal hostel with a great view of bosphorus. But it lack of bathroom, each floor only have one bathroom and even become one with the restroom. The room rather small but clean. The staff is cheerful, but not helping so much. The to quiet, I'm affraid only the owner can speak english.

With 150 lira/night, what I got was a tiny room. A bed is right in the middle, the room is so small that a corner of the bed even blocks the entrance, I had to squeeze myself in. The location is good, but there are some other hotels nearby with more reasonable price.

Stayed 5 days; excellent value for money, top location, but some rooms in basement and ground floor lack storage lockers so you need to use the ones in the corridors; also, basement and ground floors aren't ensuite.

Location: Initially difficult to find this hostel, although there was a power cut at the time which made it more tricky. Be prepared and come armed with map & ready to ask directions more than once if you're coming from the airport via public transport! Once there the staff are very welcoming and helpful, always ready to answer questions and... 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.
