Very central, within walking distance to all the main tourist attractions. It had a lovely homely feel with personal attention to detail. Good customer service. Nothing was too much trouble. From giving us directions,to ideas on where to visit or shop, we quickly found we could trust their suggestions.

Grand Bazar is 15-20 min walk as well. You can easily take a short tram ride over to the Taksim/Galata area as well. The rooms were...

A friend and I stayed at the Magnaura in April, it was chosen due to the location, price and wonderful reviews. We stayed 4 nights and could not have been treated any better. The staff was attentive, the rooms were lovely, and every morning there was a variety of local and standard breakfast items. The hotel does not allow children...

While the property is a small one, it offers a good stay. Perfect, perfect for its location. Everything you want to see is either within walkable distance or accessible via the tram service. Has an elevator and a decent breakfast spread. It does not have a regular restaurant service, so you might want to look at other options during the...

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.
