The hotel has a very good location for anybody who came to Istanbul for tourism but not only: about 10-15 minutes to walk to Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia or Topcapi Palace, about 10 minutes to walk to Grand Bazaar, close to the harbour for cruises and not far away from shopping areas like Taksim. The rooms are not luxury but...

This hotel is a really good choice for all the sights of central Istanbul and within easy walking distance of restaurants, shops, Bosphorus. Rooms are fine - bathroom much better than expected with fab shower, though tiny bath. No noise at night - which seems to be a common complaint in Istanbul. Great Turkish bath and therapist in basement -...

Best Western is situated perfectly behind Blue Mosque and near all the major sights to be seen. The street it is on is itself a quaint street with hotels and restaurants, although it is quiet at night. The service is very nice, and the rooms are charming and clean. The food is okay, and the breakfast buffet does not have...

Great location all main attractions in walking distance. The staff were friendly and helpful. the room was spotlessly clean. Free bottled water provided in the room every day. The retaurant has amazing views; the buffet breakfast was very good and constantly replenished; only minor criticism was that they ran out of tea bags on a few mornings. We had dinner...

We were delighted with the location of the hotel as it is within walking distance of the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, trams and various restaurants/cafes.

Good views from the terrace restaurant and it would be very pleasant to have breakfast...

We had a very enjoyable stay in this comfortable hotel. Our room was spotless and very nicely furnished. The restaurant was very good for breakfast and dinner and all staff were friendly and extremely helpful. The position of the hotel is perfect for exploring the sights and restaurants of old Istanbul and we would certainly stay there again.

Obelisk is a good basic hotel. Everything works. Breakfast terrace is very fine. From there you can watch the Bosborus and Asian side on Istanbul. Breakfast starts at 7 o´clock but is never ready. Staff takes care of their own breakfast first. If you want to eat the whole variety, it´s better to come later (7.40-). Location is super. All...

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.
