This hotel has a great location, just one block from the Marmara Sea, and short walk up the hill to all the major sites in the historic section of Istanbul. The staff is very friendly and service-minded, and the roof terrace restaurant is great, with a fabulous view over the Marmara Sea. My room was a little bit on the...

Armada is beyond comparison the best of more than 10 hotels we have stayed at in Istanbul. That's why we return time after time, for business or pleasure. It not only gives value for money, but also adds value to the entire experience of our Istanbul visits.

This is the third time I stayed here - every time for a conference, with a large group of people. The hotel was the center of our "life" in Istanbul as we slept here, worked here and ate here. For a relatively small size "conference hotel" they are doing a superb job - great, helpful and very professional staff, clockwork...

This hotel represents all you want to have outside your home and your country. Cozy, warm, welcoming, clean, comfortable, and nicely situated within the city. Pop your head out of your hotel room and you may be gazing at the minarets of the Blue Mosque or at the light redness of Haghia Sophia. As the hotel offers a choice of...

With its stunning view from its terrace, Armada Hotel is for sure one of the best hotels in Istanbul thanks to its incredible location. You will enjoy the view of the Blue Mosque and Santa Sofia during breakfast, lunch or dinner from the terrace restaurant. Rooms are comfortable and nicely arranged and staff always ready to warmly help you.

I was recommended to go to this hotel by a Turkish friend who comes from Istanbul, and I now understand why. This hotel not only has beautiful interiors, it is located in the heart of old Istanbul, and is obviously an important part of the city. So many hotels nowadays could be anywhere, but the Armada is clearly an Istanbul...

The Armada is an excellent hotel, located in the old town, but at the bottem of a moderate hill that needs to be climbed to reach the heart of old town. Seniors with any difficulty walking on cobblestones or climbing a moderate hill, will wind up taking some taxis, as I did. While Feb isn't the best weather month to...

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.
