I wanted family-friendly accommodation that was located within walking distance to the major sites, was inexpensive, had great reviews, good rooms and had a pool... Orient Express delivered. The location is excellent. It is, in fact, better located than most of the super expensive luxury hotels in Istanbul. It is right in the old town, in a Main Street close...

This hotel is in the center of action in front of the tram line near to many attraction sites. The most important thing was the worm hospitality. Yes it was a normal hotel with 4 stars, But the staff were polite and helpful, they can speak English and make you feel welcome. I have stayed there and at the crown...

I am so happy we've chosen this hotel for our short Istanbul getaway! The rooms are very nice and clean, with free toiletries, AC, fringe, and a small kettle. And we had a great sunrise view every day! Breakfast was good, but not really impressive. The location could not be better though. Almost all main attractions within short walk. It's...

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.
