This place hace so many great things to offer. First of all is located in a very strategic place in Sultanahmet, 3 minutes walking to the Hagia Sofía (Amazing view of it from the rooftop), the blue mosque and everything you can find in Sultanahmet square. That includes great restaurants, bars, culture and nightlife for all budgets. The staff that...

Cheers Hostel staff couldn't be more helpful and accommodating - they allowed my husband and I to check in early and even have breakfast for free, provided map of the local area and lots of advice to go with it. 'Summer' the beautiful Golden Retriever is also a part of furniture making guests feel welcome. The room was basic, but...

I couldn't recommend this place enough! During my time here I stayed in one of the private dorms. The room was clean, the water was hot, the bed was comfortable and the ac worked without issues & its perfectly situated in the old town. However the real charm of this place lies with the people and the service. Ahmet and...

Cheer's place was simply fantastic. We had a speedy airport pickup, which then took us to an incredible hostel in the middle of town. Our room wasn't ready yet (our fault because we came early before actual check in time), but instead of having us wait they just upgraded us to a higher level of room that wasy way bigger...

Feels like home! Great location, super duper friendly staff, and nice breakfast! Ahmet and Sinan are also very helpful. I enjoyed my stay there. I love the ambiance, the room, and the other guests. The Sultanahmet area is about 2 minutes by walk. For sure I will stay here again. An unforgettable moment in Istanbul. My best short holiday so...

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.

“Request a room on the 1st or 2nd floor if you don't want to be bothered by the noise from the bar. It will be plenty quiet there.”
