We (my wife and me) stayed in this hotel for three nights in October'16. It was a nice stay, since the hotel is a modern building, with very comfortable rooms. Besides, personnel is very kind and helpful. The terrace (on the roof) is an excellent place to have a tea or beer, with one of the most beautiful views of... More

On the day we were travelling the police decided to shut down one of the main roads so the traffic was chaos. We had to negotiate our way up the hill from the Galata bridge side. We phoned the hotel to... More

This hotel is perfectly located within minutes walk to the major historical sites. We had a room with an amazing view of the Bosporus and although Istanbul can be noisy, our room had double glazing which kept noise to a minimum.

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.
