I stay at the Obelisk every time I come to Istanbul. I come for a combination of business and pleasure. There are two things I like about the Obelisk, 1) it is in a great location, on a quiet street within walking distance of Sultanahmet...More

We appreciate your kind review about our hotel. We will be pleased to see you in our hotel on your next visit to Istanbul.
Besides the amazing view from the rooftop terrace of the Bosphorous Strait, Blue Mosque, and Aya Sofia, the staff was incredibly helpful. When I first arrived Mehmet from the front desk helped me work with a travel agent to plan the rest of my trip....More
The best aspect of the hotel is its location. As I was in Istanbul with my wife and daughter for sightseeing, it perfectly served our purpose. It is located just a short walk from the key historical attractions of Blue Mosque, Ayasofia and Topkapi palace....More

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.

sorry just seeing this. There is park area around Hagia Sophia/Blue Mosque. There are small stores near the hotel where you can buy some snacks, fruit, drinks, but no supermarkets.
This is in old Sultanahmet area.
