The hotel is a nice Boutique Hotel with cosy rooms and facilities like Hamam, swimming pool etc. The hotel has a bar and restaurant on the ground floor which was only open for Breakfast when we were staying. The hotel staff said it is because of Ramadan. The staff is friendly and helpful. All the major attractions of Sultanmet are... More

Antea Palace Hotel is perfectly located in the old city with the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, the Hippodrome, Cistern, and Hagia Sophia within easy walking distance. Still, it isn't in the most touristy part of town, so you see children playing soccer in the park, hear the call to prayer from a nearby mosque, and encounter some of the old... More

The Antea Palace is in the shadow of the hippodrome, Blue Mosque, etc., yet just far enough away from the tourist hordes. Its location in a quarter of the "real Istanbul" suit our tastes perfectly. There were issues with the first room we were assigned, but the staff quickly moved us to another room. The staff was were friendly and... More

Interesting hotel, with all the facilities you need, but with a little bit outdated old charm, like the imaginary Grand Budapest Hotel, indeed, as one of the other rewiers has already wrote. Very good location, but not in the middle of the touristic madness, you have to walk to the main sights hill upwards. Good comfort, OK spa facilities and... More

Was informed by the hotel management that aircon is only used in season, therefore my airconditioned room will not be airconditioned during my stay. Otherwise close to old city, great shops around the hotel. Wifi did not work in rooms.

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.
