The wet room was fully functional and spacious and the complimentary toiletries were replaced without having to ask. Could have done with a plug for the sink but I never remembered to ask for one. At night, with the door and window closed, it...

Great roof top bar in a well run hotel. Polite and great service for guests. Spa and Turkish bath if you want this. Safe area and lots of good bars and restaurants in the near vicinity and so you don't have to travel too far from the hotel to enjoy your stay. Good food in the hotel also.

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.
