The staff, especially Yousef and Ayhan, made this a wonderful stay. They were gracious, helpful, caring hosts. Yousef gave us Metro cards to use on the train and subway, saving us money. You are steps away from some of the major sites, including the Aya Sofia, Topkapi Palace, and the Blue Mosque. The train is very close, and can take...

Let me start with the welcome. We arrived at 5AM and were allowed to go straight into our room despite the official check in time being in the afternoon. We'd travelled all night and were exhausted so this opportunity for a quick nap and a shower before tackling the city was invaluable. By letting us do this they effectively gave...

This was our first stop on a 3 week trip to Europe and what a beginning. Everyone affiliated with the hotel was eager to see to our every need. They learned our names, greeted us on the streets (seemed like we had friends all over the place!). We had a triple room and it was perfectly comfortable and clean. The...

Our stay at the Ares Hotel was wonderful. The staff (especially Kadir and Ayhan) were very nice and the breakfast was delicious. Every morning the staff asked us what the plan was for the day and if they could help us find anything. We took them up on the offer a few times and didn't regret it (especially for taxis)....

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.
