Me and my wife stayed there for 4 days and it was a treat. Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia are a 5-6 walk away and you can save a lot of taxi money by staying in Sultan Ahmet area instead of Taksim Sqaure.

What a great place to stay in Istanbul when you want to be close to the main attractions. Only meters away from Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque this property offers a fabulous breakfast.

It is my second visit here. Some years ago it was a good hotel, but now I see changes for worse everywhere: room's conditions, service, cleaning etc. The only preference is the hotel's location next to the historical center of Istanbul.

Very nice Sultanahmet and bosphorus view from the roof restaurant especially at night. Clean and beautiful boutique hotel. 1st flour looks at an old city wall. 2nd flour; single numbered rooms look at the bosphorus view and double numbered rooms look at the Sultanahmet view. Only problem is the low number of personnel. Although they are very kind and helpful.

We were there for official trip in 2015 (I did not get that option below). Location of the hotel is great. The room, though a bit small, was also very clean and good. Breakfast was phenomenal. View from Hotel was fabulous. Lunch and Dinner were great as well, though many alternatives are also there. Hotel staff were very friendly.

Our time in Istanbul was wonderful and this delightful hotel played no small part in our memorable experience. The charming room was comfy, and the rooftop terrace will full breakfast buffet is something we still remember fondly. If we ever visit Istanbul again, we will definitely return to this hotel.

As from check in you know that the staff here actually cares. This is a good old hotel with all facilities necessary, including meeting facilities. Walking distance to a number of good restaurants and monuments. Good breakfast, served on a covered roof terrace with views over the water. Would return with pleasure any time.

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.
