Booked this based on some good reviews on a hotel booking site. They must have been submitted by the owners buddies. Somehow, between the booking site and the hotel our reservation was cancelled. It could have been the booking site so I will not blame the hotel for that. However, they tried very hard to get us into a hotel...

The manager is a bully - is rude and unapproachable - real control freak. They take money from your credit card and demand cash upfront. The rooms are hellish and unsafe - exposed wires and dirty. One youth staff member said 'we know the district and will find bad customer!' Very scarey! We realised that we had entered somewhere dangerous,...

To call this establishment a hotel is vast overstatement. I have stayed in cheap hostels in India and Thailand that were much better. Disgusting is the only word to describe it, and it almost ruined my entire visit. I made a reservation one month before, having read reviews and having perused the website. All lies. The place was run by...

The Sefa hotel is in a reasonable location on the old town in Istanbul, making it easy to get to the Blue Mosque, Ayasofia etc..but rooms are small, not very clean and look out onto a main road at the front. Staff tried very hard to sell us trips on our first night, ( they run a travel agency from...

It is a bit hard to explain the mix feelings concerning my stay at this hotel since the experience is one of utter surrealism. On the one hand, it is superbly located close to the sea and just five to ten minutes from the blue mosque, Hagia Sofia, and the Arasta Bazaar with plenty of restaurants and supermarkets around for...

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.

“If you are desperate, take a room for the one night, giving you a chance to assess decent accommodation at the right price!”
  • Room decor
  • Dirty tiles and flooding floors
  • View of our room
  • This is the room in the hotel - outside view
  • More wiring and more mould
  • This is what they think a wardrobe is????
  • exposed electrics
  • The 'nipple' is actually the burning through of the light bulb through the light fitting!
