This hotel rocks! it had an awesome view from the fourth floor. The last time I came to Istanbul I stayed at another hotel and it was nothing compared to my experience at Esen Hotel. The staff was very friendly and exceeded my expectations. The price wasn't expensive and the service was perfect. I would recommend this Hotel to anyone...

My suggestion is to avoid this hotel, I felt that people working there are not trustworthy and they try to trick you into accepting some other service than the one you paid for. Let me share my experience: I have booked a room for this hotel with 6 months before my arrival in Istanbul, through booking.com site. In the day...

U can walk to Hagia Sophia or to Kadikoy promenade (half hour by slow walk). Rooms are very small and crew is specific, but everyone are very friendly and...

I was left sitting in the lobby nearly two hours before being told my room had been overbooked (I booked some 6 months ago).

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.
