Within walking distance of all the major attractions, Sultanahmet is a great base for the first time visitor. The tram offers a nice alternative for tired legs, but most of the area can be canvassed on foot. There are heaps of eateries, souvenir shops and lots of activity day and night, so safety is not really an issue even if you are travelling alone. Gulhane Park-- in the middle of the district --offers a wonderful respite from the busy-ness of the streets (there are some gorgeous tea houses at the end of the park overlooking the Bospherous). Unless you are a heavy sleeper, look for where the nearest mosque is to your accommodation and plan accordingly.
