I was extremely happy and satisfied with my stay at Berk Guesthouse. The staff was exceptional and made every effort to accommodate both myself and the rest of our small group. The room was clean, the bed comfortable and view of the city and Bosphorus outstanding. Thanks for everything and would gladly stay there again.

Situated right next door to 4 Seasons hotel, one cant be better situated for access to the great sites of this amazing city. The tram line which connects both sides of the divide of the Golden Horn runs a few meters away. The hotel itself is small and friendly and offers a perfect point to set out for ones days... More

Me and my husband stayed at Berk Guesthouse for 7 days, and it was the best decision ever! It's a cute, cosy place literally in the heart of Sultanahmet. Our room had a GORGEOUS view of the sea on one side and the blue mosque from the other window!!!! A 5 minute easy walk to Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque,... More

I was told about this guest house by a friend's friend. He said it was just off the beaten track, but close enough to get to all the transportation, destinations, which was exactly right. The family who ran it had a very cute child who showed up during breakfast sometimes. So friendly, reasonable cost and helpful with everything. They helped... More

The Berk Guesthouse is a comfortable and welcome home base, perfect for exploring the main historical sites of Istanbul. The rooms are comfortable (we loved the top floor attic room with it's own little balcony), the hosts are lovely, and the location could not be better. A five minute stroll brings you to the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, or... More

Grandma's Guesthouse is a lovely small hotel just around the corner from the Aya Sophia. The location is excellent, the owners are very dedicated to their work and their house, a beautiful family owned house still pretty much in the traditional style which they opened up to welcome guests who like to stay in Sultanahmet. The location is excellent, the... 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.
