This hotel surpassed all my expectations for a short stay in Istanbul; I wish it could have been longer. The location could not be better, minutes walk from all of the major attractions and historical sites, and the tram is just outside the door. The room was spotless and well appointed. The breakfast offered an excellent array of options. The...

I stayed at this lovely hotel at the end of April during my first visit to Istanbul. I cannot recommend it highly enough. It is centrally located, close to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and the tram stop Gulhane. The hotel is small, spotless and the staff most welcoming. A heartfelt thank you is extended to Tolga, Ali and the...

Spent 5 days here. Lovely little hotel. Spotlessly clean rooms, friendly and helpful staff, decent breakfast and good location. A pity their rooftop restaurant was closed, I was looking forward to eating there. My only complaint is that the wifi is very unreliable. People expect good reliable wifi in 2017 and not being able to connect with the internet a...

The hotel is in the heart of Istanbul. It´s not far away from the Galatabridge. The staff ist friendly and the service was good. Everything was clean and in a good condition. The only minus was the food. For us it was better to eat outside.

Another trip to Istanbul and, of course, stayed at my favourite hotel. Orient Express is still a shining example of excellent customer service - a real 'gem'. As a solo traveller, it is important to me to feel welcome and 'looked after'. I see familiar, happy faces when I arrive and can honestly say that it's a most genuine welcome....

Delightful hotel, with friendly staff and excellent facilities. The rooms were spacious and the room staff would even twist and contort your bathtowels into elegant mating swans.The breakfast was traditional but the main attraction was the rooftop restaurant. Not only are the views of Istanbul spectacular but the food is comparable with the best haut cuisine istanbul has to offer....

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.
