This small hotel is near Hagia Sofia and the Blue Mosque. Excellent location on a quiet street. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was small but very clean and quite adequate. Some of our group had much larger rooms. They were all comfortable and clean. There's a cozy bar and a restaurant (with Whirling Dervish entertainment!). Full...

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.
