Very nice welcome on arrival with quick check in times. The rooms are a bit old and could use some improvement but it was sufficient to act as a clean place to sleep and explore the city from its great location. The breakfast was great with daily home made pastries with different condiments and was the best we encountered during... More

At first very nice welcome, staff was very funny, helpfull. Room was clean, comfortable bed, maybe bath was quite small, but everything was fine! If I had a chance to travel to Istanbul once again, I would choose this hotel. By the way, the location of hotel is perfect.

An absolutely faultless stay. I arrived in Istanbul at 10.00 AM, and headed to the hotel to dump my luggage as check-in was only at 1.00 PM. The owner kindly allowed me to check-in early, upgrading my room and telling me to help myself to breakfast. First impressions speak the loudest and working in the hospitality industry myself, I was... 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.
