From Airport to sultanahmet and Then 5 Minutes Walk just to arrive at The Hotel. A Bit Hidden and therefore Not Much Noise . Breakfast was absolutely satisfying and so was our stay. The Room was small, okay, but enough Space for a Weekend Trip to Istanbul.

It was a short trip but the hotel was very good. Small, comfortable and right near Sultanahmet! Clean and inexpensive. The breakfast could be with a little more variety. It was too plain with not much to chose from.

Good and friendly staff, helped me plan my itinerary. The hotel is situated very close to the tourist spots and the grand bazaar. Would definitely stay there again. Clean and neat rooms. The breakfast was served on the terrace which gave a good view of the city.

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.
