So far it was good for room and food with low price but maybe you have to increase the service excellence of the staff. The internet was good too. The staff was difficult to smile, not friendly. We thought may be they were so tired because doing many jobs. Cooking and cleaning room were doing by the same person.. I...

Small cozy location of the hotel but rooms and staff are good. Helped us lot in guiding out tour. Breakfast was good. Most imp was it is so close to Sultanahmet Square that you go and come number times. Many small restaurants are near by where you will find good quality food. So over all a good place to stay.

The hotel is very nice. Well situated. Not expensive at all. Good food. The standart room is very small, so if you prefer large spaces, it is not for you. Very good for travellers, who doesn't sit in a room, but explore the city :)

Location is just 5-10 minutes walk from Blue mosque and Hagia Sofia. In addition hotel is in the quiet street, so there is no noise at night. We were offered a room with see view and we didn't regret - it was fantastic.

The room was clean and very comfortable. We stayed here twice and both visits were perfect! Very friendly and helpful staff. We took a transfer from the hotel to the airport and the price was perfect. Pick up is right from the hotel. I really recommend this hotel to my friends.

Good location, near the historical center; a fine room and a good breakfast; warm and helpful staff; and a silent place at night (except for the proximity of a mosque, but of course that's not their fault). I recomend the place, without hesitation. The most important atractions of Istambul are easily accessible by foot or by tram.

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.
