This is a great place to stay. Near to Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque. Very friendly stuff. Good breakfast (thank you to Maria!). Small rooms, but very clean and nice decoration. The hotel is in a quite side street.
Our third trip to this splendid city was really the best of the three !!! The Minelhotel is in the middle of historic items. The crew is young, dynamic and very very kind ! The breakfast is large and delicious. Fresh vegetables and fresh fruit,...More

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.
