We sat on the terrace - one side looks at the dome of the Sultan Ahmet mosque. The other side with a (partial) view of the Marmara Sea. The food is very affordable and delicious. I had grilled sea bass, and kunefe for dessert, both were wonderful.

My husband and I went for a meal here and really enjoyed it. It was not busy around 7pm and we sat on the roof terrace watching the gulls and parakeets. The food is fantastic - I reccomened the pistachio chicken. My husband also found his turnip juice a refreshing and surprisingly tasty drink. The prices were reasonable and the... More

We had our first meal in Turkey at Doy Doy, on the recommendation of our hotel, and we were not disappointed! As vegetarians, we enjoyed the haricot bean soup, lentil soup and pide, and also the red rice and yogurt on a second visit. The desserts looked great but we were too full to try any. Added delight was 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.
