The rooms look a little funny. Full of red and gold features, but that might be due to the local style. Don´t get me wrong though, they are nice and clean. The breakfast was really good but crowded. One problem is the location. It will take you/the taxi driver a while to find it. Instanbul streets are not easy to...

The hotel was in a perfect position to view all the main sights in Sultanahmet, the old part of Istanbul and was also in a quiet neighbourhood. The decor was plush and everything comfortable and clean. Breakfast was good - I just wish they had included English teabags! The staff were very helpful.

We had a twin room which was tiny 12ft x 10ft dark and dreary. There was no drawer space at all, and only half a small wardrobe, the other half taken up by the safe and the mini-bar, as there was not enough space in the bed room for the mini-bar. So we had to live out of the suit...

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.
