If you're looking for a completely individual hotel, this is your place! Loved it and everyone who worked there. Rooms are TINY but over-the-top and wonderful. The restaurant serves delicious food but the breakfast is lacking. IF you're looking for a nowhere-like-it-experience the Kybele is your place....

Friends from home recommended the Kybele Hotel and we were able to stay for 5 nights in October. We did use their very affordable and convenient airport service. The hotel is a totally charming environment of red wallpaper, antiques, and collectibles on every floor. Lots of tucked away areas to sit and read or have tea. We enjoyed a top...

I just returned home from 6 nights with two friends at the Kybele Hotel. Istanbul is a beautiful and fascinating city, but for someone like me who is not used to big cities, it can feel a bit hectic at times. The Kybele is truly a tranquil oasis located right in the heart of the major tourist sites. From the...

The Kybele Hotel- What a charming place to stay in Istanbul. The food is fantastic, the staff is wonderful and the location is perfect. This hotel is close to the Blue Mosque and other historical sites. You will definitely want to go home with some Turkish lamps. Make sure not to miss the garden seating upstairs for lunch or dinner.

I have been to Istanbul twice and stayed at the Kybele Hotel both times. It is conveniently located in the Sultanahmet district, a very short walk from the Basilica Cistern, the Blue Mosque, and Hagia Sophia. Each of the hotel's rooms is uniquely decorated, but the entire hotel features a multitude of colorful lamps hanging from the ceiling - unlike...

You could spend ages just gazing at the beautiful decor everywhere in Kybele! The lanterns are mesmerizing. Our room had a wonderful little balcony which we enjoyed very much.

We were spellbound as soon as we walked into this hotel. Lots of flair, beautiful and quirky with extensive collections of turkish lamps, paintings and furniture in every room. Our room had a sizeable balcony with a direct view to the Hagia Sophia only a few hundred metres away. Walking distance to Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Markets, heaps of restaurants...

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.
