Not bad for the price. Clean, comfortable rooms and views are beautiful. If your room is on an upper floor, you may see both the Hagia Sophia and the Bosphorus Strait. From the top level terrace, the views are great. Nice breakfast and very friendly staff!

Stayed in the hotel for 3 nights and four days. While booking the hotel I had taken into account the location but had not factored in the extremely helpful and knowledgable management.

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.
