This is a great location with great workers that are very helpful. This is a great place to stay if you want to be close to the blue mosque and all the main sight seeing places. I highly recommend this place to everyone who wants easy access and just a clean small room.

The hotel was very accomadating and has lots around. It is very easy to take public transit and get to attractions. It is also located near many shops and restaurants. The view from the terrace was beautiful as you could see the blue mosque and marmarasee. I very much enjoyed my stay in istanbul.

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.
