The easy walking access to all the major sites is undeniable and the staff are friendly and helpful. The apartments themselves are a little shabby and the very close vicinity of at least 3 mosques means that sleep after 6am is unlikely. However all in all value for money and a great base to explore old Istanbul.

The apartment's location was fantastic, very close (5-10min walk) to Hagia Sofia / Blue Mosque. It was well furnished, neat and clean - they really did deliver on all that they promised. The room was large and the kitchen well equipped. So was the bathroom - we were very happy with the quality of everything we got. And the reception...

In December, we booked this apartment for eight days in March. When we arrived Saban Olcer apologized but said he had double booked the room. So for three nights we had to stay in a room in the Aura apartment building. That was not a good experience. It was clean but it was extremely noisy. Trains, barking dogs, people in...

Ekim Apartments in the old city of Istanbul offered value for money and comfort while giving us the freedom to keep our own hours. The area is mixed, with hotels and some ramshackle private apartments jostling one another. The views from the room were not great, with a half demolished building just across the road, but as we only really...

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.

“Ground level basement is just as quiet as Floor 2, 3 & 4. Residential neighbourhood with grocery stores, take-aways, bakeries and park close by (2.5 minutes). Grand Bazaar and commercial market just 10-15 minutes walk maximum. Sultan Ahmet mosque a short tram ride away from the Grand Bazaar.”
