Stayed here with my significant other for 5 days and absolutely loved it! Stayed September of 2015 and the weather was amazing during this time. This location was so convenient and close to everything we wanted to see. Although it was confused with another hotel with a similar name with the cab drivers, it was still fine. Friendly staff.

We were recommended to stay here by our close friends and it was a great experience. The hotel is neat, have great service and the food is amazing. Most importantly, the hotel is strategically located near all the main city attractions. Make sure you mark the hotel location when you go out since the streets are quite confusing and we... More

This hotel was booked in a package (through a travel site which usually offers good hotels, but this one was a disappointment.

The hotel is in a good condition. The price is reasonable considering that breakfast is included. The breakfast was just breakfast, what I loved from the breakfast was the fruits. The rooms are clean. It is near most of the tourists attractions.

I had two stays here - at the start and at the ending of my 3 weeks in the Middle East. Both rooms were small (even by Middle-East Standards), but more troubling was the lack of maintenance (burned out light-bulbs), and the lack of staff being able to communicate in English. One of the front desk attendants is reasonably good... More

The room was clean, breakfast was ok, it would have been nice if the capuccino machine had worked. A few little repairs in the bathroom would be good. The location is great, the staff very friendly.

I choose this hotel, because it is in 5 minute walk from the Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia, Topkapi Palace etc. For an affordable price, you get a clean room with nice furnitures, a very good breakfast, and a helpful, kind staff. Our room had a strange layout with a corridor-like part leading to the window (French balkony), and therefore it... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
