I booked 5 nights in this hotel just to see if it would live up to the good reviews I read about it, and to be ready to book somewhere else for the rest of my stay if I did not like it. I then booked 5 more nights because I really liked the hotel, the execptionally friendly staff, espicially...

I travelled to Istanbul at the height of tension this summer. I was in contact with the hotel manager prior to travelling about my requirements and she was really helpful and also kept me informed of the situation. She also ensured that when we checked in that we would have rooms together as I had requested. The hotel location was...

Large, nice rooms. Roof top restaurant was amazing with a view of the water, blue mosque and surrounding attractions. Able to walk to main attractions. Rooms were not very sound proof and it could get quite noisy at times.

Great roof top bar in a well run hotel. Polite and great service for guests. Spa and Turkish bath if you want this. Safe area and lots of good bars and restaurants in the near vicinity and so you don't have to travel too far from the hotel to enjoy your stay. Good food in the hotel also.

I will have no complaints about the hotel since the location is very good, walking distance to the sightseeing places in the Old town. Probably there are rooms with the good view, but we have chosen the budget rooms, they were ok (no any view), but the curtains are of the most depressing colors (dirty brown), so the small room...

My experience with this hotel is that the hotel staffs are extremely rude. We always avoid asking them even for a simple thing as very unhelpful and very stressful to talk to them. The room is very small, Air condition was not working and the bed is old and uncomfortable. No privacy as housekeeping enters room without knocking the door...

We enjoyed our stay here. After a mixup with the booking. Initially the room was book via booking.com but was cancelled by the hotel 2 weeks prior to our visit. After contacting the hotel direct, they gave me a better room rate offer with a sea view. Breakfast was good. And the roof top deck is a pleasant place to...

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.
