Istanbul is great city. We had wonderful time in Esans Hotel. They really made our stay excellent and unforgettable. The staff is very friendly. The room was very romantic and authentic.

Absolutely solid and recommendable; everything that previous reviewers have pointed out, e.g., the fantastic location and service quality, is true (obviously); my only concerns are that the bathroom (the toilet, to be precise) showed signs of use (I spare you the details) when I first entered the room, and the interior really is quite tacky.

What an amazing place, right in the heart of Sultanahmet, not one hundred metres from Topkapi! Surrounded by gory tourist traps, this place sticks to its own. Very Turkish, very family atmosphere, spotless, unbelievable price/quality.- must be the best deal in town. -

For those looking for a hotel in the old city, this location cannot be beat. It is just steps from the Topkapi Palace and only minutes from Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, and the tram line. The hotel is clean and comfortable. Free wifi is much appreciated. The breakfast is extensive and freshly prepared (including fresh-squeezed orange juice). With just...

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.
