“Exotic!”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

Everything about Sultanahmet was as I had read. You could find and walk to everything you wanted to see/do. It was very safe and at the same time seemed very metropolitan while it was very ancient.

“bustling with food and culture”
Reviewed January 25, 2012

easy to get around. on the tram tracks. Close to many other attractions. Beware of young man offering you " a free gift " and then expecting you to pay them money. giftd include flowers, travel books setc. They become quite hostile and you need to be firm and say no.

“Busy, very very busy”
Reviewed January 25, 2012

This is the heart of the tourist area. You've got hagia sophia, archaelogical museum, basilica cistern, and topkapi palace. It's also very close to the grand bazaar. There are many many restaurants around this area where waiters will talk to you constantly trying to get you to come into their restaurant. It's definitely an experience.
