Very pleasantly surprised by just how good this place was. Spotlessly clean and tidy, very helpful staff and generally the best in the area. And don't miss out on 'tea time', a complimentary drink and cake in the afternoons! If I was on a second trip to Istanbul I would probably consider staying in a more modern area, but for... More

First time in Turkey and Istanbul. It was a cozy hotel. Turkish style everywhere, the paintings in corridor, the emerald table lamp, the light-green chair and cushine, etc. It was a bit cold during our stay, even we are the only ones to live on the third floor, they thoughtfully placed a heater on the corridor. Hotel staff were very... More

We arrived and were treated to a complementary welcome drink in the cool reception area, together with an introduction to Istanbul by the knowledgeable and friendly concierge, which was great to orientate ourselves. The rooms were a decent size, spotlessly clean and comfortable. We could hear a bit of noise on a morning from the breakfast room, but our rooms... More

Almost flawless. This small boutique hotel has spotless modern rooms (mine had a lovely view of the Green Mosque from the private balcony), excellent facilities throughout, including a good brasserie serving well-cooked food... and the kindest, most genuine welcome I can remember. As an example, on check in I was offered a tea or coffee while at the front desk.... More

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.
