A small hotel with very friendly and helpful staff, it offers good value and a good location. It is close to the centre, and offers easy access to public transport in Istanbul and some of the main sights. The room was fine - a good size and it had obviously been renovated to some extent within the last 12 months,...

First, when I arrived, everything was nice. The first night, they were full and sent us to another hotel across the street which was not a problem. They told us that we could come tomorrow early in the morning to get a room. I came so around 10 am and still they said they did not have the room. No...

We found this hotel by the chance, just were passing it by in a hope to find any nice hotel (cause the hotel we booked through the internet turned out to be awful in reality). So we paid attention on its tidy look. The hotel is situated in the heart of the center, only 10-15 minutes walk to Sultanahmet, 10...

Travelling as a couple we really could not fault this hotel in any way. Initially, as with most hotels, it was hard to find, however the location is great, close to the blue mosque and hagia sofia. In terms of the neighbourhood, if you are looking for somewhere in the heart of istanbul this is the place to stay. Rather...

This is a family-owned hotel in the heart of the Sultanahmet district, which is a great location - just a few minutes walking distance to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia, and near the Coast of Marmara Sea. If some people dislike this hotel, it’s probably because of the area around the hotel – it could shock you at the...

We found this hotel to have the cheapest rate at one of the bests locations in Istanbul: some meters behind the Sultanahmet square and the blue mosque. Room was spacious and super comfy, with all what you need. People at reception was very attentive and the buffe for breakfast was much better than the one serving at hotel flowerpalace in...

It was really great to stay there. Clean, good size room. Staff is beyond expectations. Manager of this hotel Omer took care of us in every single detail. Just listen to his advises. Once we made a mistake and did the opposite to what he told us in Istanbul. So, we payed the price. Location is great. Just 3-5 min...

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.
