Basically this is a 2 star hotel, with a 2 star price (for istanbul), so for the most part you get what you pay for. It's important to manage your expectation - with such glowing reviews on trip advisor, you may end up being disappointed. Pros: -Central location - walking distance to key attractions and tram. A good local restaurant...

It is so convenient for the main attractions of Sultanhamet, just 5 mins walk and almost next door to the older mini HAgi Sophia mosque. A decent breakfast provided with a lovely view in summer.

I stayed in a dorm room and it is very comfortable and makes me feel like home. The staff are really helpful and friendly. Breakfast food was nice, the view overlooking the sea is perfect. Manage to catch a perfect sunset from the rooftop too.

This is a pretty good hotel, especially for what you're paying for. I actually stayed here 2 nights. The first room was a bit below my expectations since the shower did not drain properly, so I had to run it off and wait for the water to drain. But other than that, the room was spacious and clean. The second...

If I come bsack to Istanbul I wuld stay here again. It's a 5 minute walk from the Blue Mosque with several stores and good restaurants nearby. Our room seemed recently remodelled, and it was clean. The staff was friendly and helpful, and arranged a shuttle to SAW airport. A great budget hotel.

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
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.

“Triple rooms have bigger bathrooms & better views.”

“As with all buildings around the Mediterranean, much of the interiors is decorated with tiles or marble. And that resonates the sounds, in this case as well in particular the talking in the reception area. On the first floor and in the basement rooms you will hear this clearly. So if you can get a room at the second or third floor, you'll hear less of this, but possibly more of the local train that passes by. The rooms in the back are larger than in the front. Back is not necesseraly quieter than front.”
