We had a wonderful stay at the hotel. The staff was extremely helpful and cooperative. Very pleasant and comfortable stay. Location is absolutely wonderful. The park in front was great for our young kids. Hotel is very near to the Sultanahmet square which we could walk to easily every day. Very accessible and served as a good base for our... More

This would have been a five-star rating if it wasn't for the loud drums in the middle of the night that woke us both nights that we stayed here. Unfortunately, I doubt there was anything the management could do. Otherwise, this was a very clean room with plenty of amenities for a home-like stay away from home. Mehmet was a... More

Location was great, the hotel was 10 mins walk from the Blue Mosque. Breakfast was amazing, probably the best I had on my trip. Staff was very helpful too - they helped us with our travel planning and booked an airport shuttle for us. When we first went there, we were told we were booked in the "Annexe" which turned... More

We stayed at the Ottoman Elegance Hotel for 5 nights over Easter and paid 387 euros. We were in the room with a balcony - there is only one room with a balcony and it is on the top floor (3 flights). To be honest I wouldn't choose the balcony room you don't get a few of much at all... More

Stay in the room with balcony. The bed was perfect for me . Slept like a baby. Heaven after 10 hours of flight. But the view from my balcony is a bit of a let down. Winter in Istanbul is not as colorful as in the summer.

I never thought that I would be able to enjoy such comfort, efficiency, and smiling service at such an affordable price. As someone from the US I thought such a level of satisfaction would be unreachable for anything less than $100/night. I was very happily surprised to find Ottoman Elegance high on service and low on cost. James Garcia. September... More

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.
