The friendly staff at this hotel were very helpful, the rooms were clean and pleasant, and the fresh, free breakfast buffet was a treat that I looked forward to every morning. I was lucky to find this hotel when my usual hotel was full. It is a little boutique hotel ideally located right in the heart of Istanbul's historic district.... More

This is budget accommodation so you get what you pay for. The first night we arrived we were put in a basement room which was tiny and the toilet door wouldn't close. The staff kitchen was opposite and the staff felt the need to arrange the whole kitchen at 5am, lots of banging and loud talking. The hotel is located... 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.
