The most filthy discussing hotel we've ever seen, dead flies everywhere, dust, cobwebs, old and dirty sheets, we had 20 cm of space surrounding the bed, and that was it! there were still moldy leftovers in the mini-broken-fridge... the bed was - tree stacked mattresses piled up, the headboard was a plain piece of wood, and we overlooked some kind...

This should be 3 and a half really. Interesting hotel very centrally located in the Sultanahmet district so able to walk to all main sites. As others have mentioned the floorboards are extremely creaky making sleep very difficult at times if people come in late to the upstairs rooms. Breakfast was adequate. This hotel is filled with 'interesting' artefacts. There...

Our Istanbul experience was a positive one so the hotel did not impede on our holiday in any way and there were little quirks we enjoyed and appreciated but if I was to give a balanced view I would say the hotel fell just a little short of our expectation which is a shame as I think it could be...

I stayed here with my mother and when we arrived there was a minor issue with the room.. However, the GM of the hotel rectified it straight away and upgraded us to one of their nicer rooms 2 floors up. This was great as we did not need to explain anything, they took care of it straight away. The staff...

Although our room felt a bit small at first, it had everything we needed and it was very clean. The staff were fun and very helpful. We will recommend to family and friends. The location is very good but hard to find first time as Google Maps is inaccurate. It's best to ask a local as the hotel is very...

Situated in a quiet street in the middle of sultanahmet. The staff is very helpful and friendly and the room and bathroom was clean. The room however a little bit small and the floors were very creaky but it looked very lovely! Also the breakfast was very okay: enough choice.

This is such a delightful place to stay, lovely rooms, view of the Blue mosque roof, under ground exposed flooring where you can see centuries old structures, breadfast food was perfect, and the nuts/almonds on the wee tables on each landing was such a nice touch, the staff were very personable and I would warmly recommend this as great place...

We stayed there from March 25 to March 31, 2014, and it was a great week! The hotel is in a perfect location: everything that one "must see" in the old city of Istanbul/Constantinople is within walking distance. Staff are friendly, having a sense of humor and appreciating a bit of small talk every now and then. Our room was...

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.
