This is probably the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. There was a wall thee feet away from my window, you could only just see daylight. No sound proofing above, below or though the walls. A cup stuck to the wall to catch drips from a pipe. Four lights not working reported, only one fixed. Breakfast was terrible, by...

A very basic, budget-friendly hotel in a great location. And this is the main reason you would choose this hotel, because it is only a five minute walk to the main Sultanahmet square where you will find the Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque and a long line of eateries nearby. Walk a further five minutes and you find the famous...

Stayed here for 3 nights in May with my wife and 3month old child. As soon as we arrived, we were greeted in a friendly manner and as we had a child with a pram they even upgraded our room from standard to family room on ground floor for free! Great start to the holiday and shows how nice the...

The location couldn't be better - short walking distance to all the major sites. We felt very safe in this neighbourhood and walked everywhere. Our family room was bright, spacious and kept very clean every day. The delicious buffet breakfast is excellent with lots of variety for everyone. There are lots of restaurants close by for lunch and dinner. They...

Excellently located for the key sites, a small friendly clean value hotel. Nice breakfast. No restaurant, but no shortage of good restaurants within 5 minutes walk. Airport shuttles are only 50 mtrs away. Very comfy bed.

The hotel is located in the old part of the town, near the Arasta bazar and the Blue Mosque. Staff was friendly and helpful. Mr. Ahyan gave us a lot of tourist information about hammas, restaurants and transportation. Room was a bit small, but clean. Definitely recommendable, good value for money!

This is located in a good central part of Sultanhamet with friendly staff. Make sure you check the room is the one you booked as there are a couple of very basic economy rooms on the top floor which do not have the features shown in the website iie. No wooden ceiling or large room and bathroom. Breakfast is basic...

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.
