Visiting Istanbul for a few days and was looking to stay in Old City since most of the attractions are there. That's how I came upon Apricot Hotel - rooms look clean, location excellent, and price is very reasonable.

When you first arrive it is not hard to find. However, the door is locked and you have to ring the doorbell to get in. The hotel staff was quick to answer but it was a little strange not being able to walk in and out of the hotel myself. The room was clean and nice, I had my own... More

Clean room & bathroom. Appropriate temperature. The staff are helpful & accomodating. However, one night is a little annoying because the walls are too thin & the room's not soundproof, distracting sounds were heard. The hotel is accessible to most tourist spots, we didn't have a hard time going & coming back. Near to nice restaurants and souvenir shops.

I have spent many happy hours looking at the quaint street from the windows of room one in the Apricot Hotel, and our most recent experience was not an exception. This tiny hotel continues to delight us. We love the charm of the design of the hotel, but the stairs have always been difficult for me. The new elevator makes... More

I loved the Apricot hotel. The staff and management were really friendly. It is centrally located. The rooms were comfortable and clean. A small, well located hotel with a relaxing environment that is perfect for touring the major attractions.

at about 45 USD per night this was a good, clean, friendly place with good wifi and good air conditioning. I was very happy with the Apricot. The breakfast was not the best….I think they could put out less items and take better care…if they had half as much variety but the items were more mouth-watering, then I would have... More

An outstanding hotel with great value, great service and great breakfast. We were in the heart of old town Istanbul, the breakfast area overlooked a very scenic garden area facing the street. Our room, was quite lovely, old world style. The hotel does not have an elevator, we were on the second floor and I am now convinced all restaurants... More

Stayed here one night as I rolled into town ahead of friends. My experience wasn't far off from that of previous reviewers. It was a very pleasant stay for $45. They put me in a first floor bedroom with queen sized bed. The room was cozy and comfortable. The floor boards were creaky, but I found that charming. The only... More

We were given a nicely furnished room on the second floor of the hotel with large windows and an extremely spacious bathroom. The A/C worked perfectly and we could always count on the sunlight filtering in through the windows to light everything up. Our room was very clean and tidy and room service was perfect.

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.
