We booked a triple room, but one was not available when we arrived, so the hotel gave us 2 adjoining rooms at the same price. A very fair resolution, I think. The staff were very friendly, and always willing to answer questions and help with tour and transporation reservations. The location is the best---so close to all the best sites...

This is an extremely basic hotel without much to offer except a pleasant breakfast room. The A/C they claimed to have was absolutely ineffective, so we spent two sweltering nights with the windows open to the very noisy street. We would have left after the first night if we could have done so without losing our money. In retrospect we...

We recently stayed at Artefes hotel while on holiday in Istanbul. The gap between our expectations based on the hotel website and our actual experience was enormous, and not in a good way. It was very hot during our stay and despite the claims on the hotel website that there was air conditioning, there was no AC - just a...

Eleven days at this hotel together with family gives me the right to review with confidence. Everyone at reception went out of their way to provide extraordinary service even in times of duress (such as leaving a three year old's beloved blanket, plane delays and other setbacks from paperwork to translation to map interpretation--all resolved with their smile and effectiveness)....

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.
