For someone who dislikes breakfast always the same and climbing...

A friend and I spent several days at the Magnificent Hotel, and we had a very nice stay. The location is great - it is very close to Sultanahmet Mosque, but it is on a quieter side street. That being said, it is close to a large number of shops and restaurants, so it is still very conveniently located. The...

On the plus side, this place is in a relatively nice position being quite close to the Little Sophia, and the internal decorations are not bad. But without a good service, it's nothing. Below is our complain letter to Expedia (with some mods for booking info) for your reference. ============= This is my official complaint to Expedia and this "4star"...

We were completely new at finding our way through Istanbul. On foot as night fell, local restaurant and store owners helped us find the hotel down the hilly cobblestones. Similarly, we found our way uphill to tour Sultanahmet over the next few days, using maps provided by the hotel. Staff assisted us with a variety of requests. Room was very...

I was a bit taken back by the room we were given, very small, and the hardest bed I have ever slept on. The worst part was the nights since it was so loud due to the street traffic and people. It was very hard to sleep. As this was such a poor choice my wife wanted to return home...

We booked through hotels.com. Ended up with the basement room. No bed bugs, but felt a bit like a dungeon. Cleanliness was poor, found old hair in the shower drain. Noise from the street was very loud, kept us up some nights. Area is convenient to main attractions, but be prepared to walk up hill. Breakfast was good one day...

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.
