It was a budget hotel. Located in an alley not so noisy. Close to Aya Sofia within 5 mins walk. Microwave and kettle were ready in the kitchen(top floor).Staircases were quite steep, by the way. Staff was nice but they didn't stay here but owned a small supermarket nearby. They can help to book private shuttle to Ataturk for 25euro,... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
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.

“If you wish to be near to kitchen choose floor 4. If you want to avoid steps ask for Floor 1.”
 of 5 bubbles EMOCS, 2 Dec 2014 | Read review
“This building consists of just one room per floor, a total of four rooms. I suspect that all rooms have the same layout. They are U-shaped rooms. A degree of privacy exists between the bed areas. Two beds or a double bed is at one leg of the U and a single bed is at the other leg of the U. There are 17 stair steps per floor, no lift. Request a lower floor if you are infirm.”
