When I opened the drapes of my smartly designed room, I was astounded to be looking up at the Hagia Sophia! It was my nextdoor neighbor! The great bed, "pillow menu" of pillows and nice sheets made sleep easy, at least until the pre-dawn Call to Prayer, which is broadcast from every minaret! The big Turkish breakfast lasted me through...

The Hotel staff is very friendly. Perfect for a sightseeing tour. We stayed a couple of days and the staff was very friendly and warm. The furniture could be renewed but otherwise a good hotel. The bar has no alcohol but fine fruit cocktails (alcohol is forbidden near holy sites).

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.
