I have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Best Western Obelisk. I booked my package deal through Expedia and had booked the Obelisk on the basis of the reviews I had read on Trip Advisor. I was not disappointed. Firstly, the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. My room was a double superior and was clean and...

Obelisk is a good basic hotel. Everything works. Breakfast terrace is very fine. From there you can watch the Bosborus and Asian side on Istanbul. Breakfast starts at 7 o´clock but is never ready. Staff takes care of their own breakfast first. If you want to eat the whole variety, it´s better to come later (7.40-). Location is super. All...

My wife and I enjoyed 6 nights at the Obelisk and received excellent service. We were made to feel very welcome and they helped us with planning our daily excursions. The room was very nicely decorated and extremely clean. With double glazing all the outside noise and calls to prayer were almost completely excluded. The location is superb being 5...

The Obelisk Hotel, an ancient Ottoman mansion set in a quiet square of similar buildings, with its Asian interior design, gives an air of tranquillity and provides a relaxing holiday setting. Our room was spacious and comfortable; and we were provided with the excellent, up-to-date services we expect of a modern luxury hotel. The view of the Sea of Marmara...

The Hotel is definitely overrated, from European point of view. We would give it 3***, mostly for its excellent location. For a 4-star establishment the reception & room service is often inadequate, the room is average, often dirty - and don’t expect to find every amenity you saw advertised while booking! Having said that, don’t forget you’re in Istanbul –...

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.
