What can you say about the perfect fourteen-day-vacation? Our flight to New York was cancelled, and our connector to Istanbul was stuck in California because of the storms in New York. Uh-oh! But wait, an earlier flight to New York had been delayed and we got great seats, we arrived in time to have a bite to eat and find...

This a a lovely small hotel situated in a quiet cul de sac within walking distance of the Aya Sofia and the Blue Mosque yet close to the parts of Sultanahmet where ordinary folk live. The evocative call to prayer from the numerous mosques in the vicinity mingles with the sounds of children playing in the streets below and women...

We stayed for a week in this hotel in the middle of March 2008. The hotel is about two minutes' walk from the Blue Mosque and is therefore very close to the main sights in Istanbul. The staff were very friendly and gave us lots of information about the city. The room was well-decorated, clean, and the bathroom was pleasant....

Hotel Peninsula is in a great location with a great terrace view of the water. It was clean, safe and friendly. We stayed two nights and then when we found ourselves without a reservation later in our trip, the staff from Hotel Peninsula helped us find another hotel near there.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to the Hotel Peninsula in Istanbul. We are a small boutique hotel, nestled quietly at the end of leafy laneway. We are nestled amount this city’s great historical landmarks and you will instantly transport your mind heart upon arrival. When you go to buy your morning paper, you stroll past our 489 year old Turkish Hamam, tangled with vines and moss. This truly is an immersion into an oriental parallel, and we are pleased to be able to offer you warm, friendly accommodation during your journey here. The Peninsula has become a cultural institution over the years and we look forward (“wait with four eyes” in Turkish) to welcoming you to our extended family. ... more   less
