We; my dad, my sister and I; recently stayed here. We wanted a triple room because we all needed our own beds. Our first night in our triple room was hell - the air con didn't work, and we boiled the whole night. Not to mention there was a huge party happening on the top floor in the old restaurant...

OVERALL: Reservation and queries for this hotel were made and answered very quickly thanks to Ipek Palas's Sibel Yilmaz. The hotel is fantastic and clean if you're mostly out and about and need a cheap place to sleep and rest with comfort, yet be near key attractions. The staff are friendly and very helpful.

I've been in this hotel. It was very tidy and very kind staff are working here. The tram was only 3 min from the hotel. I felt at home. Sultanahmet and several other sightseeings were nearby. Thanks for the stay!

It's a bit dated to be honest, but this hotel surprises with its convenience, Breakfast was far the best I ever had in even better rated hotels. Close to major city sights and restaurants. Maybe a little bit noisy, but still bearable.

I liked the hotel location, close to stores, attractions, restaurants, and the market. I loved the breakfast, that had enough variety and combination of local and "standard" items. The room, even the building being old, it was not artificially renovated, conservating the original details.

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.
