We had chosen this hotel after reading some of th reviews on this site. The location of the hotel is great as all the sites are within walking distance, however, the hotel stay as such did not offer much. The staff was pleasant but not very helpful. Rooms are too small and bathrooms even smaller Moreover, the room we were...

I highly recommend this hotel. The location is unbeatable, as other reviewers have stated. 3 of the most important tourist sights in Istanbul are within 3-5 minutes walk. The staff is extremely friendly and warm and make you feel at home, especially Merie and Erhan (sorry if misspelled) Breakfast is very enjoyable and there is free Internet access via a...

The location can't be beat. You'll be close (walking distance) to many of the major sights. The tram line is also within walking distance. Rooms are clean and nicely furnished. The breakfast spread was good. The bed was comfortable. The walls do seem to transmit sounds through though it didn't bother us. Istanbul is an amazing city and you are...

If you want to visit the old part of Istanbul this is the hotel to stay at. Situated on a 'quiet' road [and there are not many of these in Istanblul] near to the Topkapi Museum and the Blue Mosque, it is the ideal location for a sight seeing visit, and the inner courtyard a perfect location to sit in...

Ottoman Imperial is the best hotel in Istanbul when you wish to explore Istanbul; close to all major sights - all on walking distance. The Hotel itself is very beautiful and the staff is very friendly, accurate and service with a smile. Especially Merih, Handan and Erhan made us feel really at home. They served above self.

Lovely hotel in an old redecorated building. Nice room (a little on the small side) with good beds. A fine backyard/bar/garden/ restaurant where we in the evening could enjoy the sunset, and later the stars, the moon and the birds rising from the minarets of The Blue Mosque when the loudspeakers called for worship. Hotel ideally situated near Hagia Sofia,...

I enjoyed my stay, the service is mostly good and the rooms are decent - good size flat screen TV and a jacuzzi bath tub :-) I had a view of Haya Sofia from my window, and it´s fairly easy to get around to the tourist spots around the city.

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.
