The Artefes Hotel is a lovely hotel with a very nice dining room. The breakfast was the most extravagent buffet I saw in Turkey - everything one could imagine, including scrambled and fried eggs, sausage, bacon, every imaginable kind of fruit, pancakes, etc. We stayed here as part of a tour, so I can't speak to value for money because...

The hotel is totally unsuitable for children. It has a flight of steps at the front which meant that every time we arrived or left the hotel we had to request assistance with the buggies. Breakfast is served on the terrace which is accessed via a tiny lift and another flight of stairs. Because of this difficult access with very...

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.
