We help millions of travellers each month to find the perfect hotel for both holiday and business trips, always with the best discounts and special offers.
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.

Yes, the transfer fee to the hotel is free with 3 day + stay. You have to pay for transfer back to the airport. I did not reconfirm before arriving. I do not recall a city tax which may mean there was none or that it was not a large issue. Be sure to go to the restaurant right across the street and just to the right as you go out the door. It is run by a man and his 5/6 sons. I am sorry I cannot recall the name. Have a great time.
