Second time there. Great employees, clean rooms and bathroom, perfect location, breakfast included. They send a van to pick you up at the IST airport, just give them your flight information. Excellent price per night.

The Hotel is very close to some of the main sights of Istanbul and very good Restaurants. Our room had no daylight, but was clean and big enough. The breakfast was good and the buffet had different goods to choose from.

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.
