Stayed for 7 nights in May. Booked our room direct with the hotel and dealt with Karim by email who was very efficient and answered all our queries. Hotel is in Sirkeci on a busy street but we were given the choice of either a room at front or the back of the hotel. We chose to stay in one...

This is a typical budget hotel--small, dark, dated rooms. On the positive side it is very reasonable ($35 for a single in April), well located for walking to Aya Sophia area, Galata Bridge, Bosphorus cruises, etc., very good buffet breakfast, and best of all the staff is most accommodating and helpful. If you don't plan on spending a lot of...

Simple, but nice and clean hotel with friendly personnel and excellent location - it takes only 2 minutes to get to tram station and 5 minutes to walk to Sultanahmet area. There are lots of cafes and souvenir shops near it. Breakfast was the same each day, but the choice was quite good.

I did not choose Kafkas Hotel initially - I had been located in an excellent boutoque apartment hotel very close to Istiklal and Taksim square. Then the riots began, virtually on my doorstep and, whilst I never felt in danger from any of the protagonists, it became increasingly difficult to get to and from the hotel. Also, the novelty of...

Stayed here for about a week. It is a very basic hotel for undemanding travellers' needs. Very simple and small, but clean rooms. Comfortable bed, new clean towels and linen. Good clean bathroom. Never had breakfast, so can't comment. Service was very good, booking manager and receptionists were very helpful - gave advice, helped to order taxi, etc. There were...

For me one of the main things I need from a hotel is easy access to the city. The main sites are all in walking distance (a little far like 15 minutes but not unreasonable). The rooms were average, I was here with a group so there were a variety of rooms we ended up with. I was in a...

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood 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.
