If you're going to the Hagia Sophia or the Blue Mosque, you will wander through this district. Like any big city, lots of tourists, but beautiful sights and rich history.
Loved the area, architecture and the streets around. Go from The Hagia Sophia through the park to Sultanahmet, visit the blue mosque. (Sure make sure you're covered when you enter the mosque) and go through the mosque gardens up the street walking all the way...More
Stayed in this area to be close tot he blue mosque and Hagia Sophia. Pleasantly surprised also how many food options, beautiful views, and the general atmosphere. Has everything you need and is easy to walk around. Must visit!
For me, visiting Istanbul is worthless without going to SultanAhmet area. Beautiful place full of historical sites, restaurants, coffee shops and nice traditional stores and markets. Everything you need is available, great location with respect to public transportation and to other touristic places.
