In general the experience was very good because the apartment is spacious and the view is great from the balcony. You should be aware of the following though: - the location is good because you can reach the Sultanamet monuments on foot in 15 minutes or take a tram. However, you will be in the shoemaker district where people work...

we have had the penthouse appartment with 2 balkonies with a magnificent sight on the Bosporus and on the Blue Mosque. the Ascot House is in middle of Sultanahmet, a little bit outside of the touristic hot spots. The ones who want to see how the locals are living/working and who wants to be a little bit outside of the...

Our group of six adults stayed in the Panorama and Blue Mosque apartments for five nights in September 2012 and we loved it! Ascot House is well located in the shoe making area of Sultanahmet, within easy walking distance of all the major attractions. Both apartments are spacious, comfortable and well equipped with lovely views of the Bosphoros, the Marmara...

The accommodation at Ascot house was excellent. Despite the appearances of the slightly back street access, it was well appointed, spacious and was a very useful 5 min walk from the main sights. It was very clean, nicely air conditioned and secure. The decor was classic and the caretaker lady was really efficient at keeping the place clean. we were...

We spent 6 nights in the Duplex Apartment, we enjoyed peaceful nights really, the tapping from shoemakers and the calls from the mosques did not disturb us too much. The bed was comfortable and the bathrooms were excellent. The location is good, you can walk to the are of the Blue Mosque without climbing the hill, however we did walk...

Really liked this place. Good location for all the sites though the steep hill did make our arrival and departure a little difficult. Caretaker lady was good though communication was also a little difficult due to language differences. Would have liked a broom in the apartment as we needed to clean a little due to a long stay. Rooms were...

We choose for Ascot House to spend a long weekend in Istanbul, as we want to be in the real city of Istanbul. We stayed in the Blue Mosque apartment which was awesome. We were there with our two kids ( 21 and 18 years old ), and we fit easely into this apartment. The lady who was doing the...

The location was great if you are looking for a little local flavor. It is on a very steep cobblestone street with steps and limited access for cars so be prepared to haul bags.

Thanks for your compliments and I am delighted you enjoyed the apartment with its great views and great location. Sorry about the delay with your return taxi, I understand it was ordered very late but we are reviewing our procedures to try to prevent such a nervous situation in future. We look forward to welcoming you back!

I'm glad you found the apartment brilliant (and I'm sure also the views from the balcony). I assure you that as the apartments are English-owned there is definitely no anti-English feeling - nor is there any in Istanbul generally, I think you must have got the wrong impression. You were unlucky enough to have been caught in unusually cold weather...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ascot House has 5 1-bedroom designer apartments in a converted historic building, each for 2-5 people, some with fantastic views. Quick and easy access to Istanbul's prized historic attractions; Beyazit and the Grand Bazaar are 5 minutes by foot, the Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia and the Topkapi Palace 15 minutes. In Gedikpasa locality - a rare gem of the old Istanbul, with friendly locals, not yet developed or sanitised for tourists. Many cobblers work nearby and you may hear the tapping of their hammers! By staying at Ascot House you feel the energy and buzz of the old city, in complete safety. Note the street is quite steep and cobbled, and access to Ascot House is by 8 marble steps. ... more   less
