We spent 4 nights at the hotel. It is situated near almost all the important sights of Istanbul. So you don't need any public transport. The rooms are nice and the staff is really very friendly. The breakfast is ok. It's very quiet althought it's near the centre.

Ideally situated in Sultanahmet old town it is an easy walk to the major attractions Haghia Sophia and the Blue Mosque plus the tram line to everywhere else. It is a slightly farther walk to the Tokapi Palace . Inside the hotel is refurbished in what I would describe as a very pleasent Rococo style. Staff excellent. Welcome little pool...

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.
