We have stay here twice, on our trips to Turkey. This time we also visited Istanbul. The rooms are big! The kids sleep in the front room on a fold out bed with TV. The hotel is very clean with very nice linens. The kids love the nightly cookies and milk, and breakfast is great. Also this hotel close to...

We really enjoyed our stay at Artfes...the location was really good and near to the main sighting of Istanbul. The hotel's rooms were clean and tidy, the view on the roof top was breathtaking and very romantic. The staff were helpful they did make some calls for us when we needed help, and they speak good English. The best thing...

Just returned from Istanbul and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel! The staff is very friendly and always smile. The hotel looks dingy from the outside yet once you enter it becomes quite charming. The room is nothing to rave about with its outdated furnishings and décor…very 1960’s! It is however, clean and the water pressure is good. Our...

We have had a really nice stay at the hotel. The staff was very helpful, particularly thanks for Nilufer. Our room was good, after we managed relatively quickly to get it changed to one with views on the avenue (not noisy). The hotel is about 10 minutes away from the historic center (you need to take a tramor cab), very...

We were my fiancee, her sister and I, and we stayed from Oct 06th to Oct 11th in a triple room for 99 Euros per night. Like many others have pointed out, the rooms are good but basic. A little mold in the showers, but otherwise good. Also, the breakfast is solid and is served ontop of the hotel, with...

The Artefes was the only hotel which appeared on both our hotel choices list and that of a travel agent friend, so having read the comments on here we made a booking. The location is tremendous, being within easy walking distance of all the main sights of Sultanhamet, yet in a quiet, mostly residential street with very little traffic and...

Hotel is a standard 3-star hotel, but the rooftop bar/restaurant has the best view of Istanbul ever, and location is terrific overall. Incredibly romantic at night on that rooftop bar, and breakfast up there in sun looking at the ships pass is wonderful.

Me and my wife recently stayed four nights while on excursion trip to Istanbul. We enjoyed staying at this hotel specially being very close to the tourist ares. The breakfast was wholesome and nice. Staff were extremely helpfull, specially Volkan and the staff at the counter. I think it is the best deal for the price we paid. M.R.BAIG

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.
