Green olives/ walnut spread was uniquely tasty and the chicken casserole with eggplant purée, wow! Tender and exotically spiced. Right behind the Aya Sofia, in an interesting neighborhood. I didn't stay in the hotel but it looked nice.

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.

I actually walked from Taksim sq back to the hotel one day, just for fun. Using offline maps and a compass it took me about an hour and a half, but should be a bit less if you don't wander too much. The public transit system is more than adequate so this shouldn't be a problem. Also the hotel is close to alot of the main attractions (the grand bazar in particular) so it's a better trade off than if you went for a hotel closer to the square
