I spent two nights at this hotel which is located within a few minutes from most of the important tour sites in the Sultanahmet area of Istanbul. The staff are very friendly and along with Mehmet they give you that one-of-the-family feeling you would not get at the larger hotels. The rooms are clean and of nice size. There is...

We stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed fantastic views of the blue mosque from the terrace and traditional Turkish breakfast each morning. The location is fantastic and the staff were very helpful.

Just returned home yesterday after a five night stay in Istanbul at the Lamp Hotel. This is an amazing City and - for the price - this is an amazing little Hotel. Nothing is too much trouble for Mehmet and his staff and if you are fortunate, as I was, to have a room with a view of the Blue...

Probably one of the most affordable double rooms in the old city conveniently placed on a lovely bar street right next to Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. The owner and staff is very helpful and pleasant.

We stayed here this past weekend - The location was awesome, the price was not too bad. The rooms were small and the staircase was steep, but we were in Istanbul to see Istanbul and not the hotel. The breakfast was fresh, the staff very nice and helpful, the rooms were very clean.

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
